Abstract
(EN)
An answering machine tool is described which, when a message is received, accesses caller identification data associated with the message and from this data identifies an image for the message. Data is then output to cause an icon comprising this image to be displayed. This icon, in turn, may be manipulated and interacted with by a user, by touching the icon on a touch sensitive screen or by other means, such as mouse pointer or stylus. This causes the message to be replayed, moved, deleted or be subject to any other course of action that the visual rendering of the message affords the user.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un répondeur qui, lorsqu'un message est reçu, accède aux données d'identification de l'appelant associées au message et s'en sert pour identifier une image correspondant au message. Des données sont ensuite produites pour permettre l'affichage d'une icône contenant cette image. Cette icône peut, à son tour, être touchée et manipulée de façon interactive par l'utilisateur, au moyen d'un écran tactile ou d'un autre dispositif, tel qu'un pointeur de la souris ou un stylet. Le message peut ainsi être relu, déplacé, effacé, ou manipulé par une quelconque autre action que le rendu visuel du message autorise l'utilisateur à accomplir.
