Speech Server Attendant User Guide

Getting Started
Getting Started
Purpose of this Guide
This guide provides procedures for managing calls on the attendant-only Mitel® Speech Server
system.
Users with the unified messaging option should use the other guide, the Mitel Speech Server
Attendant/Unified Messaging User Guide.
About Mitel Speech Server
Mitel Speech Server is a speech-enabled application that uses an automated attendant to route
incoming calls based on spoken commands. Typically, you say the name of the person that
you want to speak to, and the system transfers your call to the requested party.
Speech Server also supports unified messaging. This optional feature requires a different
installation and configuration from the attendant-only system. This guide is written for the
attendant-only system.
In order to communicate, Speech Server uses speech recognition and text-to-speech
technology.
Speech recognition
•
Stores your voice print when you enroll and uses your voice print to identify you every time
you login.
•
Recognizes your voice commands and performs your requested task, for example, "Call
Anne Smith."
•
Recognizes names in your personal contact list and includes that contact within the task,
for example, "Call the Eye Doctor."
Text-to-Text Speech
•
Reads names that are not personally recorded.
•
Available in French, Spanish, United Kingdom (U.K.) English, and North American (N.A.)
English.
Benefits of the System
You can do the following tasks:
•
Place calls to any number in the Company Directory by saying a name, extension, or
department.
•
Use a multi-level menu to direct a call.
1
Document Title - Using Variables
•
Program your own directory list of frequently-called numbers in your Personal Directory,
and then use voice commands to place calls to those numbers.
•
Call into the system from your home phone or cell phone and use voice commands to place
calls to numbers that are programmed in your Personal Directory or
Company Directory.
•
With the Mobility/Call Forwarding option, forward your incoming calls to another number,
for example, your home number, your voice mail, or your cell phone number.

Enrolling on the System
The first time that you log in, the system will guide you through enrollment. After you have
enrolled, you can begin using your Personal Directory.
Before you start, ensure that your system administrator has given you the following information:
•
Speech Server extension ________________ (2 to 7-digit number)
•
Your Login ID ___________________ (10-digit number in North America; 11-digit number
in the UK)
•
Your PIN ______________________ (4 to 7-digit number)
•
Your extension: programmed for … Automatic Login (Partial or Full) OR … Manual Login
•
URL for your Personal Web Page______________________
•
2
Users on a Digital system use http://platformname/login.html; where platformname
is the name of the Speech Server platform.
Getting Started
•
Users on an IP system not integrated with Active Directory, use http://3300IPaddress
where 3300IPaddress is the IP address of the login page for the 3300 ICP Desktop
Tool. The user names must be entered in the User Authorization Profile of the 3300
ICP System Administration tool.
Note: Users on the IP integrated Attendant system access their Personal Web Page by
launching their login page for their 3300 ICP Desktop Tool in Internet Explorer, entering
their Login ID and Password for their Desktop Tool, clicking OK, and in the " I want to"
drop-down menu, selecting "Manage my Speech Enabled Applications".
Tip: Logging into the Personal Web Page uses the same Login ID and PIN that you login
with the Speech Server Attendant.
Tip: You should change the PIN that was given to you. The PIN secures access to your
Personal Directory. See Changing Your PIN, on page 7.
To enroll on the system
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. If your extension is programmed for a manual
login, say "Login".
2. Say your PIN, say your login ID, and repeat your login ID to provide a voiceprint.
3. Record your name. Callers will hear this recording when they ask for your name.
4. Listen to the tutorial. At the end of the tutorial you will hear a tone or "Who would you like
to call?".
5. You can now say the name of the person to whom you want to speak to.
Logging In
To log in from an extension with automatic login
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. You receive immediate access to the Company
Directory, your Personal Directory, and the system features.
Your system administrator usually programs the automatic login on your business extension
number. You can program automatic login for your cell phone, pager, fax, and home phone
numbers. If you want, you can change the login type for your business extension as well. See
Programming Your Numbers, on page 7.
To log in from an extension or external number with manual login
Tip: This procedure could apply to a company phone programmed with manual login,
your home phone programmed with manual login, or the pay phone that you manually
login with.
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. You receive immediate access to the Company
Directory.
2. Say "Login."
3
Document Title - Using Variables
3. Say your 10-digit (for N.A. usage) or 11-digit (for U.K. usage) login ID so the system can
verify your voice with the voiceprint registered during your enrollment. After the system
verifies your voice, you have access to the system features and to your Personal Directory.
Your system administrator programs manual login on lobby phones or department phones that
serve many users.
Changing Your Name Recording
The system records your name during your enrollment. If you wish to change your name
recording at a later date, you can easily do so using the auto-attendant.
To change the recording of your name
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if necessary.

administrator for information about your dialing plan. For the voice mail number, enter the
voice mail number that the administrator gives you. The voice mail number does not have
a security setting, and is available to the public.
4. Select the Login Security levels for your cellular phone, home, fax, and pager numbers.
The Manual login requires you to say your login ID for speech verification in order to access

drop-down menu, select Public, Trusted Users, or Private. "Public" lets everyone call
you, "Trusted Users" lets callers logged into the Speech Server system call you, and "Private" restricts everyone from calling you at that number. For example, if the cellular phone
belonging to Dave Black is set to "Public" on his Personal Web Page, an outside caller can
call Speech Server and say "Dave Black on his cell phone," and be able to call Dave Black
on his cellular phone if Dave Black is listed in the Company Directory.

Setting Your Forwarding Options
You may want your calls forwarded to your voice mail if you don’t want to be interrupted, or you
may want to have your calls forwarded to your cellular phone, or to a location (other than your
office) that you frequently work in.
Note: If your phone is on PBX other than the 3300 ICP, the calls that are redirected are
only those that go through the Speech Server. People calling your phone number directly
will not be rerouted. If your phone is on a 3300 ICP system integrated with the Speech
Server system, the administrator can configure your phone to have all of the calls to your
number be redirected to your Reach Me (call forwarding) number.
Note: The call forwarding feature is dependent on the Mobility option being enabled
To set your call forwarding
1. In your Personal Web Page, click Reach Me.

Getting Started
Defining Your Personal Directory
Your Personal Directory is a list of names and telephone numbers for your personal use. The
Personal Directory allows you to use voice commands to place calls to people not listed in the
Company Directory.
Note: The way you create personal contacts for your Personal Directory is dependent
on the type of system that you have. Ask your administrator if your system is Active
Directory enabled or not.
•
Users on systems without Active Directory use their Personal Web Page to create personal
contacts for their Personal Directory.
•
Users on systems with Active Directory use Microsoft Outlook to create personal contacts
for their Personal Directory.
Managing Your Personal Contacts with Your Personal Web Page
If your system is NOT Active Directory enabled, you manage your personal contact names for
your Personal Directory, with your Personal Web Page.
Tip: Contact your system administrator to enable the Personal Directory feature to allow
you to place calls to your Personal Directory contacts.
Adding Contact Names
To add contact names to your Personal Directory with your Personal Web Page
1. In your Personal Web Page (see Accessing your Personal Web Page, on page 5), click
Personal Directory.
2. Click Add.
3. In the Name field, enter the name or text that you will say to initiate the call. For example,
"Jane Doe," “Jim at work,” “Jacks cell phone,”* or “The weather office.” This field supports
a maximum of 60 characters.
Tip: *Do not include an apostrophe, for example "Bob Green's pager," in the Name field.
The system cannot recognize entries that contain apostrophes.
Tip: When using a number in the Name field, spell the number, for example, one or two.
Do not use numerical digits.
4. In the Phone Number field, enter the telephone number that you would dial from your
phone. The characters ∗ and # are supported.
5. Click Add.
Tip: Record the names of your contacts; otherwise, you will hear a computer-generated
recording (TTS) of the name when the system confirms your request. You can record all
of the names at once. To record the names, see Recording Contact Names, on page 12.

Getting Started
4. For instructions on how to modify a contact, and for more instructions, refer to Help in
Microsoft Outlook.
Tip: To check if you can call your contacts, use the demo mode. Saying “Enable
Demonstration mode” turns on the feature; “Disable the Demonstration mode” turns the
feature off.
Note: You can record the names of your contacts in your Personal Web Page so the

your system administrator. Contact your administrator if you require additional entries in
your contact list.
Managing Your Contact List
A software license determines the maximum number of contacts that you can have in your
Personal Web Page. If you have more contacts in Microsoft Outlook than what you are licensed
for, the system randomly chooses the contacts for your Personal Web Page. The maximum
number that the system accepts is 505 contacts.
The following procedure lets you select which contacts you want voice-enabled. This procedure
involves putting the contacts that you want for your Personal Web Page into a Voice Contact
category. Then only those contacts will appear in your personal list.
To make a Voice Contact category
1. In Microsoft Outlook, open your Contacts folder.
2. Right-click a contact name.
3. Select Categories from the pop-up menu.
4. Click the Master Category List button.
5. In the New category text box, type Voice Contact, click Add and then OK.
6. In the Categories window, click OK.
To enter your existing contacts in the Voice Contact category

3. Click OK.
Tip: You can quickly view which contacts belong to the Voice Contact category by clicking
the View menu, selecting Current View, and then By Category. Microsoft Outlook will
display your contact list, sorted by category.
Recording Contact Names
When you request a person on your Personal Directory list, the Attendant plays back the
requested name (for example, “Ann Johnson”) to confirm the destination before routing the call.
By default, the Attendant plays a computer-generated name; however, you can record the name
yourself, and the system will then use your recorded name to confirm calls.
Use your Personal Web Page and your phone to record the names.
To record the names in your Personal Directory
1. In your Personal Web Page, click on the contact name that you want to record in your
Personal Directory.
2. Click Record Name.
3. Dial the Speech Server extension number.
4. After the Attendant answers, say "Login," and say your login ID. If you are calling from an
auto-login number you do not need to log in.
5. Say "Start Recording Session."
6. After the system prompts you to connect, click Connect.

Getting Started
Testing Contact Names
The system has a demonstration mode that allows you to try features, such as Call by Name,
without actually placing the call. Instead of routing the call to the requested party, the system
returns you to the main menu.
To test your personal contact entries
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number.
2. Say “Enable Demonstration Mode.”
3. State the name, extension, or department (group) that you want to test.
4. The Attendant either confirms your request and returns you to the main menu or indicates
that it cannot recognize your request. In demo mode, the system will not complete your call.
5. State “Disable Demonstration Mode” to return to normal operation.
Importing Contact Names
If you are on a Mitel Speech Server Attendant system that is not integrated with Active Directory
and you are using a Mitel 5240 IP Appliance, you can import your speed dial entries from the
5240 IP Personal List to your personal directory. This import will only work if the IP integration
and the 5240 IP Appliance are on the same PBX as the Speech Server and if the user has login
privileges to the 3300 ICP Desktop Tool.
Note: The Import button on your Personal Web Page only appears if your Attendant
system is not integrated with Active Directory and is connected to a Mitel 3300 ICP system.
To import contacts from the Mitel 5240 IP Appliance Personal List
1. In your Personal Web Page, click Personal Directory.
2. Click Import Names.
3. Wait for the system to update the files. The time for this process depends on the size of
your Personal Directory. The updated list of your contacts will be shown the next time you
refresh your screen.
Note: The import procedure takes the names that are entered in the User Authorization
Profile of the 3300 ICP System Administration tool.

Document Title - Using Variables
Using Speech Commands
Speech Server responds to natural speech commands. When you become more comfortable
with the prompts, you can use the Barge-in and the Expert Mode features.
Barge-in
Barge-in allows you to interrupt a system prompt with a request. Speech Server will stop playing
the prompt and respond to your request.
Barge-in allows experienced users to obtain faster service. Inexperienced users can still listen
to the full prompts.
Your administrator can enable or disable this feature for you.
Note: The system disables Barge-in when you listen to the Speech Server tutorial for the
first time.
Expert Mode
In Expert Mode, Speech Server provides a short tone instead of prompts when you call into
the system. If the system encounters an error, for example, if it can’t recognize the requested
name, it begins providing prompts and instructions.
Your administrator can enable Expert Mode on your account.
Speaking Tips
When you are speaking to the Attendant
•
Speak clearly, but don't shout.
•
Speak at a normal pace--not too slowly, particularly when you state your login ID.
•
In noisy environments, do not use speaker phones.
•
Remember that you can interrupt the prompts if Barge-in is enabled.
•
If you are prompted to confirm a name, answer only "Yes" or "No." If you answer "No," wait
for the prompt before you state the name again.
•
If the system does not recognize a name, it may be because the name is not programmed
into the system or because your pronunciation of the name is not in the system. Contact
your system administrator to have the name added or to have the pronunciation corrected.
When calling a name in your Personal Directory
•
14
Say the name as it is entered in your Personal Directory. Say the first and last name of the
person, for example, "Bob Smith."
Using Speech Commands
Universal Voice Commands
The following voice commands are available from anywhere within the Speech Server system:
Say...
To
"Cancel" or "Stop"
Terminate the current operation
"Operator"
Transfer to the operator
"Repeat"
Replay the most recent prompt
"Help"
Get Help (list of current valid commands)
"Tutorial"
Access a tutorial for the current application
"Auto attendant"
Transfer to the Attendant for Speech Server
Managing Calls
Placing a Call
The system can call contact names in the Company Directory or in your Personal Directory.
•
When using the Company Directory, you can request the department name or say the name
of the person and the system (by default) transfers the call to the business number. To place
a call to a cellular phone, pager, fax, or home number of the person in the company directory,
you must request it specifically. For example, you could say "Bill Smith on his home number."
Note that to receive the call, Bill would not have his home phone number set to "Private".
If the phone number is set to "Trusted Users", then you would have to login to the Speech
Server system and then request the call.
•
When using the Personal Directory, and if you manage your contacts with
-
the Personal Web Page, you say the exact text that you entered in the Name field for
the Personal Directory, for example, "Vanelli Pizza," or "Bob at home."
-
Microsoft Outlook, you say the first and last name if you only have one phone number
programmed. If you have more than one number programmed say the first and last
name and then direct the call, for example, "Bob Smith at home."
Conditions:
•
The department name must be programmed in the Company Directory.
•
The name of the person must be programmed in your Personal Directory or in the Company
Directory.
•
If your administrator creates a multi-level menu with Call Transfer, Transfer to Voicemail,
Audio Message, and VoiceXML nodes, you can call into the system and answer prompts
within a series of menus to: speak or leave a message with a specific person, obtain
information from a recorded script, or interact with a VoiceXML script.
-
When you initially make a call into the system, the multi-level menu lets you place a
call to the company directory while you are at the main menu, but does not let you
direct calls to the company directory when you are within the sub-levels of the menu.
15
Document Title - Using Variables
-
When you are in the sub-levels of the multi-level menu, you can press the * key on the
phone to get back to the previous level.
•
If the number you are calling is not programmed, or is marked "Private," or marked for
"Trusted Users" and you are not logged into the Speech Server system, the Attendant
responds with "Sorry, that phone number is not available."
•
You can place a call to a voice mailbox, ("<first name> < last name> on their voice mail")
if the recipient name is in the Company Directory and has a voice mail number programmed
in the Speech Server system.
-
If the administrator enables Automatic Route Selection (ARS), the system will directly
route your call to a voice mailbox. If ARS is not enabled, you will have to enter a voice
mailbox number after the request, "<first name> < last name> on their voice mail".
To place a call
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if required.
2. When the Attendant answers, say
-
the first and last name of the person that you want to call, or say the first and last name
of the person and then direct the call, or say the text that you entered in the Name field
in your Personal Web Page; or
-
a department name; or
-
a phone number (one digit at a time).
For example
To call John Smith’s
Say
Extension
"John Smith"
Cellular Phone Number
"John Smith on his cell phone"
Pager
"John Smith on his pager"
Fax
"John Smith on his fax"
Home Number
"John Smith at home"
Voice Mail
"John Smith on his voice mail"
The business number (extension) and voice mail number for John Smith is public (this
setting is fixed and cannot be changed). Therefore, everyone can leave a message on his
voice mail, or can call John Smith by saying his name, or by saying "John Smith at his office."
Tip: Speech Server is very user friendly, and responds to a variety of voice commands,
for example, "John Smith - office number," "John Smith - cell," and "John Smith - cellular."
John Smith can choose the privacy settings (Public, Trusted Users, or Private) for his other
numbers (cellular phone, pager, fax, or home numbers) in his Personal Web Page and
therefore can restrict callers from calling him at those numbers. "Private" restricts all callers.
"Public" provides no restrictions and "Trusted Users" lets other people logged into the
Speech Server system call him. These settings can also be set by the administrator.
16
Using Speech Commands
Note: If you specifically place a call to an extension number, for example, "John Smith
at his office number" when call forwarding is set to their cellular phone, the system will
honor your request and route the call to the extension number.
3. The system confirms the requested name. If the confirmation is correct, remain silent or
say "Yes," and the Attendant will route your call. If the confirmed name is incorrect, say
"No" or “Cancel,” and the Attendant will allow you to request the name again. The system
will then hang up.
If, after several attempts, the Attendant cannot recognize the name of the person who you
are trying to call, you will be routed to the operator. If an operator is not available, you will
be prompted to try your call again.
Tip: To improve recognition success, minimize background noise.
If the line is busy and if the person you are calling has their voice mail number programmed
with the Speech Server system, the Attendant will tell you that you can leave a message
on their voice mail if you say " <First name and last name> on their voice mail".
Tip: To get a list of the departments that you can call, ask the Attendant, "What are the
departments?".
Note: If you place a call to an extension number, for example, "John Smith at his office"
and he has his call forwarding set to his cellular phone, the system will honor the request
and transfer the calls to the office extension.
Canceling a Call
To cancel a call
•
Say "Cancel" or "No" before the Attendant says "Dialing...."
If you press 0 (zero), you will cancel the transfer, and the system will automatically route your
call to the operator.
Transferring a Call
1. While on a call, press the Transfer key on the phone.
2. Press the Speak@Ease key (Speech Recognition key on the 5240 IP Appliance) or dial
the Speech Server extension number.
3. Say the name of the person/department.
4. After the Attendant confirms the name, hang up the handset.
Forwarding Calls
You can forward your calls to one of your programmed numbers (cellular phone, pager, fax,
home, voice mail) or a temporary phone number. If you enable call forwarding, callers who
request you by name are forwarded to your call-forwarding number. Your redirection privileges
determine if you can redirect your calls to internal, local, toll, or international numbers.
17
Document Title - Using Variables
You can enable, disable, or query the call forwarding with the Attendant. You can also program
the call forwarding in the “Reach Me” section of your Personal Web Page. See page 8.
For example, if Bill Jones is working from home, he can set "Reach Me" to his home phone
number. Then, if someone calls him by requesting his name, the system automatically redirects
the call to Bill’s home phone number. However, if a caller specifically requests a number, for
example, "Bill Jones on his cell phone," the call is directed to the cellular phone number.
You can also set the time that you want the call forwarding to expire. After the call forwarding
expires, the system directs calls that are made to your name back to your office number.
Note: If your phone is on a PBX other than the 3300 ICP system, the calls that are
redirected are only those that go through the Speech Server. People calling your phone
number directly will not be rerouted. If your phone is on a 3300 ICP system integrated
with the Speech Server system, the administrator can configure your phone to have all
of the calls to your number be redirected to your Reach Me (call forwarding) number.
Note: The ability to program call forwarding over the phone is available in N.A. English,
U.K. English, or French.
To forward calls to your home, cellular phone, fax machine, pager, voice mail, or to a
temporary number
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if required.
2. Say "Call Forwarding."
3. Say "Forward Calls."
4. Say "Home," "Cellular," "Pager," "Fax," "Voice Mail", or say the phone number, one digit at
a time (include the international code or area code if required). The personalized numbers
must be programmed in your Personal Directory in order for the system to respond to your
request.
Note: Calls are forwarded directly to your voice mail, only if your administrator enables
ARS for the system. If ARS is not enabled, the caller will have to enter a voice mailbox
number to leave a message.
Tip: If the Speech Server system recognizes the telephone number that you are calling
from, the system will provide you with the choice of saying "Use this number."
5. When the Attendant asks you if you want to set an expiration date, say "Yes" or "No." If
you said "Yes," say the date and time when prompted, for example, "March 10th," and
"10:30 a.m." Midnight is recognized as "zero hours," that is, "0:00." If you said "No" to the
expiration date, expect the system to forward all of your calls to your requested destination.
6. After the Attendant confirms the date and time, say "Yes" to return to the main menu.
18
Using Speech Commands
To disable call forwarding
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if required.
2. Say "Call forwarding." The Attendant states your current call-forwarding settings.
3. Say "Disable call forwarding."
To query your call forwarding setting
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if required.
2. Say "Call Forwarding." The Attendant states your current call-forwarding number and the
expiration time.
Tip: Call forwarding is an optional feature that your system administrator can enable on
a per-user basis, if the Mobility option is purchased and enabled on the system . To obtain
access to this feature, contact your system administrator. Your ability to redirect calls to
internal, local, long distance, or international toll numbers is also controlled by your system
administrator. Contact your system administrator to obtain the required redirection
privileges.
Checking a Phone Number
To check a phone number in the Company Directory or in your Personal Directory
1. Dial the Speech Server extension number. Login if required.
-
For a business number in the Company Directory, say "Check the number for first
name, last name."
-
For a department number, say "Check the number for department name."
-
For a name in your Personal Directory, say "Check the number for the name listed in
your Personal Directory."
-

Tip: For the above examples, you can also say "What is the number for ............."
2. The system plays the number for the name that you requested. If the number is not available, the system responds with "Sorry, that number is not available."
Note: You cannot query a home phone number, fax number, pager number, or cellular
phone number that is not programmed or that is marked "Private."
