Title (EN) VOICE INFORMATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'INFORMATION VOCAL
Abstract:
(EN) A voice information system is disclosed. The present invention generally allows for updateable audio information (e.g., menus). Although a device might have some pre-packaged menu components, other menu components can be received from a server. Each menu component, regardless of whether it is original or received from the server, has an associated voiced name. When a user highlights a menu choice, the voiced name can be played. The user then has the option of selecting the menu choice or scrolling to a new menu choice. In this way, a user could navigate the menu without having to actually see a visual display of the menu, which may be especially useful for users unable to see the visual display or users with visual disabilities.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'information vocal. La présente invention permet généralement d'obtenir des informations audio pouvant être mises à jour (par exemple des menus). Bien qu'un dispositif puisse comprendre des composantes de menu pré-incorporées, d'autres composantes de menu peuvent être reçues d'un serveur. Chaque composante de menu, d'origine ou obtenue du serveur, comprend un nom associé pouvant être vocalisé. Lorsqu'un utilisateur sélectionne un choix de menu, ce nom peut être lu. L'utilisateur a l'option de sélectionner son choix de menu ou de faire défiler un nouveau choix de menu. L'utilisateur peut ainsi explorer le menu sans voir d'affichage visuel du menu, ce qui est particulièrement utile pour les utilisateurs ne pouvant pas voir l'affichage visuel, ou pour les utilisateurs souffrant de troubles visuels.
