Thank
you for purchasing
this
AUDIOVOX
telephone.
Your
AUDIOVOX
DT 941 CI Integrated
Telephone Answering Device ( ITAD)
combines
the features of a digital
cordless phone with a digital (tapeless)
answering device.
Unlike most other cordless phones, the
AUDIOVOX
DT 941CI di itizes your
voice using advance
D PC <:Jigital
voice c Ing o provide noise and
distortion free performance.
In most
conditions, you will not be able to tell
you are using a corpless phone. Gone
are the annoyances of static, interference and having to listen to other
people's conversations on your cordless phone.
-{fjt-
The AUDIOVOX DT 941 CI scrambles
your voice before it transmits it. This
allows you the security of knowing that
no one can tune in and eavesdrop on
your conversations.
The AUDIOVOX DT 941 CI decodes
and displays name and/or number
Caller 10 (CIO) information
where
available and when subscribed to. The
alpha-numeric
display can show both
the name and number of the calling
party.
Up to 24 name characters or
11 phone
number digits can be
The AUDIOVOX DT 941 CI also
provides a one-way Page/Find.
Pressing the base PAGE key will
cause the handset to ring in a manner
which distinguishes it from normal
incoming ringing. This can be used to
alert the handset user, or to simply
locate the handset in the event that it
is misplaced.
The AUDIOVOX DT941 CI uses special
memory in both the base and handset
which is not susceptible
to power
failures.
This provides permanent
storage of all memory dial numbers,
Caller 10 information as well as the
base and handset security codes.
When an optional battery pack is
installed
in the base
unit,
the
AUDIOVOX DT 941 CI uses this battery
pack to provide operational backup in
case of power failure. In this way you
have access to all normal phone
functions during a total power outage.
Calls can still be placed and received
without interruption. More than 5 hours
backup will be possible with a fully
charged battery pack in the base unit.
The AUDIOVOX
DT 941 CI informs you -
when another extension is currently
in use on the same phone line. The
phone will also alert you when you are
Out of Range, even when you're not

With the AUDIOVOX Dr 941CI, the
user can easily answer a call by
pressing any key other than the OFF,
MUTE or VOLUME Keys. In addition,
the handset
keypad and display
illuminate while the. handset rings to
signal an incoming call. This is very
useful in a dark environment.
