Applicant
MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY LICENSING, LLC
FOR FURTHER ACTION: See Form PCT/ISA/220 as well as, where applicable, item 5 below.
This international search report has been prepared by this International Searching Authority and is transmitted to the applicant according to Article 18. A copy is being transmitted to the International Bureau.
It is also accompanied by a copy of each prior art document cited in this report.
1. Basis of the report
a. With regard to the language, the international search was carried out on the basis of:
the international application in the language in which it was filed.
a translation of the international application into                                          which is the language of a translation furnished for the purposes of international search (Rules 12.3(a) and 23.1(b)).
b.
This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
c.
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
This International Searching Authority found multiple inventions in this international application, as follows:
1. claims: 1-4, 7, 8, 12, 13
Method of presenting an alert to a user in an environment on a device having a processor wherein executing the instructions on the processor further causes the device to receive at least one further incoming request for communication and if the environment noise level is above the noise level threshold, store each of the incoming request for communication and the at least one further incoming request for communication in an alert log and if the environment noise level is below the noise level threshold, present the alert to the user by presenting the alert log.
2. claims: 5, 6
Method of presenting an alert to a user in an environment on a device having a processor wherein the incoming request for communication is associated with a contact and wherein executing the instructions on the processor further causes the device if the environment noise level is above the noise level threshold, to send a message to the contact that the user is unavailable to accept the incoming request due to the environment noise level.
3. claims: 9-11
Method of presenting an alert to a user in an environment on a device having a processor wherein executing the instructions further causes the noise level detector to adapt the sampling of the noise level according to different parameters.
4. claim: 14
Method of presenting an alert to a user in an environment on a device having a processor wherein the alert is presented using sound within a frequency range of a frequency spectrum, wherein executing the instructions on the processor to detect the environment noise level comprise detecting the frequency range of the environment noise and wherein executing the instructions on the processor to compare the environment noise level to the noise level threshold comprises identifying the environment noise level to be below the noise level threshold if the frequency range of the alert is determined to be outside the frequency range of the noise.
5. claim: 15
Method of presenting an alert to a user in an environment on a device having a processor wherein executing the instructions on the processor further causes the device to receive at least one further incoming request for communication, to detect a user response of the user to the alerts associated with each of the incoming request for communication and the at least one further incoming request for communication and to reduce the noise level threshold if the user response indicates the user is unable to perceive the alerts.
1.
As all required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers all searchable claims.
2.
As all searchable claims could be searched without effort justifying additional fees, this Authority did not invite payment of additional fees.
3.
As only some of the required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers only those claims for which fees were paid, specifically claims Nos.:
4.
No required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant. Consequently, this international search report is restricted to the invention first mentioned in the claims; it is covered by claims Nos.:
Remark on Protest
The additional search fees were accompanied by the applicant’s protest and, where applicable, the payment of a protest fee.
The additional search fees were accompanied by the applicant’s protest but the applicable protest fee was not paid within the time limit specified in the invitation.
No protest accompanied the payment of additional search fees.
4. Title of the invention
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established by this Authority to read as follows:
5. Abstract
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established, according to Rule 38.2, by this Authority as it appears in Box No. IV. The applicant may, within one month from the date of mailing of this international search report, submit comments to this Authority.

Many devices are configured to present alerts notifying a user of device events, but the user may not notice the alert due to a noisy environment. A user may mitigate missed alerts by increasing the alert volume or choosing a vibration mode, but such techniques depend upon the knowledge, attention, and memory of the user to adjust the device before the alert. Instead, a device (104) may compare the noise level (202) of the environment (112) with a noise level threshold (204). If the noise level (202) is below the threshold (204), the device (104) presents the alert (110); but if the noise level (202) is above the threshold (204), the device (104) defers the presentation of the alert until the noise level (202) diminishes below the threshold (204), and then presents the alert (110). The device (104) may also send an automated response to the message, notifying a sender that the user may return the message upon leaving the noisy environment (112).
