VOICE MEMORY ENTRY TIPS
VoiceDial is “speaker (voice) dependent” - it’s designed to
recognize the voice that programmed the name. If you
program a memory location for “pizza delivery” and another
person tries to VoiceDial “pizza delivery,” the phone may not
recognize the new voice. But, when responding to the
prompt “Answer yes or no,” the phone is speaker (voice)
independent - it can recognize most voices.
• Excessive background noise
will affect your voice entries.
If you are in a noisy area, go to
a quiet area.
• Don’t pause between first and
last names.
• Speak in a consistent voice.
• Keep your voice entry name to less than 3 seconds.
• When making a voice entry, hold the handset microphone
about 8 to 12 inches from your mouth.
• When the voice prompt says “Say yes or no,” if you don’t
say anything within 6 seconds, you will hear “louder
please.” If you still don’t respond, the handset beeps and
the programming procedure cancels.
• When the voice prompt says “Enter the phone number you
want to store,” if you do not make an entry within 10
seconds, the handset beeps and the programming
procedure cancels.
• To cancel a programming
procedure, press cancel.
• You can’t program the phone
while you’re on a call. If you get
a call while you are programming
the phone, it will cancel the
current memory operation.

STORING A PHONE NUMBER IN MEMORY
TIP
When the voice prompt says
“Enter the phone number
you want to store,” if you do
not make an entry within 10
seconds, the handset beeps
and the programming
procedure cancels.
With VoiceDial, programming is easy. Just follow the
preprogrammed voice prompts.
1) Remove the handset from the base.
2) Press store.
The talk LED blinks and the
monitor LED lights.
You will hear:
"Store mode. Enter the
2-digit memory location."
For example: Press 0, then 1.
TIP
When the voice prompt says
“Say yes or no,” if you don’t
say anything within 6
seconds, you will hear
“louder please.” If you still
don’t respond, the handset
beeps and the programming
procedure cancels.
TIP
If you need a pause to
separate groups of numbers
during dialing, press pause.
This 4 second pause counts
as one digit. Pressing pause
more than once increases
the length of the pause
between numbers.
NOTE: To automatically select the first available (empty)
memory location, press 0, then 0.
3) You will hear:
"Say the name you want to store."
Example: say “John Smith.”
Then, 2 times, you will hear:
"Please repeat."
To confirm, repeat the name, “John Smith.”
If you don’t respond within 6 seconds, you will hear
“louder please.” If you still don’t respond, the handset
beeps and the programming procedure cancels.
NOTE: You can skip the VoiceDial and enter a phone
number in memory without a name. Enter the number on
the keypad, then press store (go to step 5).
"On the keypad, enter the
4) You will hear:“On thephone

For example: enter 555-5555;
