iVoice Receives Notice of Allowance of Patent Award for 'TAPI Interface Based, Speech Enabled Automatic Telephone Dialer Using Names'
MATAWAN, N.J. - iVoice, Inc. has received notice of allowance for its fourth speech-recognition patent, "TAPI Interface Based, Speech Enabled Automatic Telephone Dialer Using Names."
This patent seeks to protect the use of the Name Dialer utilizing a Telephone Application Programming Interface (TAPI). The use of TAPI allows iVoice to integrate into different telephone PBX systems, eliminating the need for additional external hardware. Each phone system hardware provider provides a specific software driver that interfaces directly with the iVoice Name Dialer.
The Name Dialer is a phone dialing system that imports contact information for dialing (names and phone numbers) from almost any PIM or contact manager, including, Microsoft® Outlook, ACT® and Goldmine®. The user speaks the name of the person listed in their contact list and through a TAPI, the Name Dialer sends a signal to the Private Branch Exchange (PBX) to initiate dialing.
