Cygnion Products
Year 2000 Compliant
Do not attach the base station to your PC until you
are instructed to do so during the software
installation process.
Because the drivers for your new hardware are not
preloaded into your Windows operating system,
connecting the base station to your PC before the
drivers are loaded by the installation procedure will
prevent the PC from recognizing the base station
hardware.
Cygnion mobile terminal products with date and/or
calendar functions are designed to handle the
century turn as a normal change of date and year. On
January 1, 2000, at 00.00, year denotations written
as 1999 will change to 2000, and denotations written
as 99 will change to 00. No drops of data,
presentation or irrelevant year denotations or any
other function disorder should be expected.

Cygnion Corporation
41 Discovery, Irvine, California 92618, U.S.A.
We declare under our sole responsibility that the CG 2400 system (Base
Station Model DA 202, Handset Model DG 200 and Handset Charger Model
XA 200) conforms to the following specifications:
The limits for Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of FCC Rules and
IC RSS-210, operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1)
This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
FCC Part 68 and IC CS-03:
This equipment complies with FCC Rules Part 68 and Industry of Canada IC
CS-03. Located on the back of the base station is the FCC registration
number and ringer equivalence number (REN). You must provide this
information to the phone company if requested.
The REN is useful to determine the number of devices you may legally
connect to your telephone line and still have all of those devices ring when
your telephone number is called. In most areas, but not all areas, the sum of
the RENs of devices connected to one line should not exceed five (5). To be
certain of the number of devices you may have connected to your line, as
determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone company
to determine the maximum RENs for your calling area.
Hearing-aid wearers: The CG 2400 system is compatible with inductively
coupled hearing aids.
UL/cUL:
This equipment is UL-listed and cUL-listed for use with UL-listed personal
computers and complies with UL 1950/CSA C22.2 No. 950-95 Third Edition.
Safety Precautions: To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or
larger telecommunication line cord.
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the
same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of
used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
The rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack must be
recycled or disposed of properly. Do not dispose of in municipal waste.
Check with your local solid waste offices for details in your area for recycling
options or proper disposal.
Do not open or mutilate the batteries. Released electrolytes may cause
damage to the eyes or skin. The electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed.
Avoid contact with water or fire. DO NOT dispose of batteries in a fire; the
cells may explode. Check with local codes for special disposal instructions.

Welcome
The Cygnion CG 2400 Professional Cordless Phone
System is a combination of hardware and software
that you can use to control and route incoming
communications (phone, fax, and email) and simplify
outgoing communications through such features as
speech-activated dialing. The main components are:
•
The base station, which connects your public
telephone service to your PC and interfaces
between the phone lines, the PC, and the
handset.
•
The CyberGenie@Work software application,
which provides an interface through the PC for
the entire system.
•
A handset that works like a cordless phone, from
which you can receive and originate calls.
The CG 2400 System uses 2.4 GHz Digital Spread
Spectrum technology, which means that the quality
of sound is as good as that of conventional phones,
and no one can eavesdrop on your calls.
About CyberGenie
Cygnion's CyberGenie technology provides a virtual
personal assistant, an interactive way to access and
control incoming and outgoing communications.
1
CG 2400 User Guide
CyberGenie can greet your callers, route calls based
on user-defined “rules” and caller voice response,
and store incoming messages.
CyberGenie also lets you interact with many system
features from the handset keypad, through the
handset menu display options or with voice
commands.
Interacting with the System
There are several ways you can interact with the
system:
Use CyberGenie from
the handset
When you press the
key on the handset, you are
accessing the speech user interface. CyberGenie will
ask Who would you like to call?
If you give CyberGenie the name of a contact or
another user that has been set up for speech
recognition, CyberGenie will dial the number for you.
If you answer with “CyberGenie,” you start at the
first level of speech menu options. CyberGenie walks
you through the options available. As you become
familiar with the options, you can use speech or
keypad shortcuts to quickly access functions.
Use the handset
keypad options
Many of the options available by speech interface are
also available by pressing a key on the handset
keypad.
Use the handset
display menu
From the handset, you can access various menu
options by pressing the
keys on the handset.
Menu options will display, and you can move through
the options with the
keys, select an option
with the
key, or move back up a level in the
menu with the
key.
Use the PC
2
From the PC, you can set up users and contact
information, set up other system information, track
and manage calls, review voicemails and more.
This guide gives you the information you need for the
full setup and use of your CG 2400 PC Phone System.
Use it as a learning tool by going through the entire
manual in sequence or for reference on specific
features and procedures.

CG 2400 User Guide
The User
This system is designed for the small office or home
office user, for the busy household where family
members rival for phone time, or for the user who
enjoys new technologies.
System
administrator
One person should be responsible for setting up and
maintaining the CG 2400 system and data on the
computer. This person would be the system
administrator in charge of:
•
Connecting the hardware and installing the
software
•
Configuring the system fully
•
Setting up new handsets and users
•
Managing the system from the PC
With this guide, anyone with a working knowledge of
their Microsoft® Windows® operating system can do
the system administrator job.
Handset user
Once the system is installed, anyone who can use a
cordless telephone can use a CyberGenie handset.
Basic handset procedures are described in the
Handset Quick Reference. Detailed procedural
information is also available in this guide.
Key Words
Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the
following terms:
4
Telephony
First used when telephones were invented to
describe the telephone industry, more recently this
term has been put to new use in reference to
technologies that integrate personal computers and
telephones. Telephony not only covers calls coming in
or out, but also such features as caller ID, integrated
messaging and automatic speech recognition.
Auto Attendant
A feature in an automated telephony system that
answers and directs incoming calls, usually with user
interaction.
CyberGenie
A technology that allows a computer to recognize
and respond to spoken commands.
Your virtual personal assistant. This is the voice the
user hears when checking messages or accessing a
speech-activated feature through the handset, or a
caller hears when phoning in if the Auto Attendant is
activated. CyberGenie combines Auto Attendant
features with other advanced speech recognition
command features that greet and direct incoming
calls and provide the CyberGenie user with an
interactive speech interface to many system
features. Unlike some earlier ASR technology, you do
not have to “train” CyberGenie to understand your
voice.
CyberGenie@Work
The software that drives your Cygnion telephony
system.
CyberGenie@Work
server
The application that runs CyberGenie@Work in the
background. It loads automatically when you start
your PC and must remain up and running for your CG
2400 system to operate fully.
CyberGenie@Work
application
The software user interface. This can be closed
without shutting down the server.
Base station
The hardware that receives and processes call
information, then passes it on to CyberGenie@Work.
The base station is physically connected between the
phone jack and your computer.
Handset
The device that serves as a cordless phone as well as
a link between you and CyberGenie.
Analog phone
An analog phone is a device which uses tip & ring (tip
& ring refers to the type of connection used when the
phone is plugged into a public telephone service
phone jack). It is also a non-digital, non-PBX
phone—the type of phone commonly found in a
home.
CG 2400 system
The complete Cygnion small office or home office PC
telephony system. The basic components of the
CG 2400 system are the base station, a handset, and
the CyberGenie@Work software.
Chapter 1: Introduction
Automatic speech
recognition (ASR)
5
CG 2400 User Guide
User
Anyone who is set up in CyberGenie@Work to receive
voicemail or use a handset.
External call
A call that comes in or goes out via your local phone
company.
Internal call
A call made from one handset to another.
Caller
CyberGenie session
The interaction between a user and CyberGenie
through a handset or remote phone.
Call session
Any call activity is referred to as a call session. It can
be a CyberGenie session, an external or internal call.
Air channels
A single call session uses one or two air channels,
depending on the nature of the call. For example, an
external call (incoming or outgoing) uses a single
channel. A call from a handset to CyberGenie also
uses a single air channel. Calls between two
handsets, however, use two air channels, one for
each handset.
Subscribe
Assign
MAPI
6
Someone calling in to the CG 2400 system from an
external phone line.
To register a handset to work with the CyberGenie
base station. The base station will interact only with
a handset that has been subscribed.
To provide a user with access to a specific handset.
Messaging Application Programming Interface, MAPI
is a Microsoft standard for messaging software that
allows different types of message information (email,
voicemail, contact lists, etc.) to be passed through a
common interface.
Unified messaging
A way of accessing your messages (voice or email)
from a single source. It includes such features as
text-to-speech, which converts email text into a
format that you can listen to when checking
messages by phone.
Full function mode
When your PC is on with CyberGenie@Work running,
the system is in full function mode.
Standalone mode
If the PC must be turned off, the system can still run
in standalone mode, which lets you place and receive
external calls, but without the additional features
provided by CyberGenie@Work.
The CG 2400 system turns your computer into a
multi-featured phone system. Not only does it
answer and route incoming calls, it also notifies you
when you have voicemail or email, or when a fax
comes in1.
A key system component is the DG 200 Handset.
When a call comes in, CyberGenie will notify you and
display the caller's ID2, if available, giving you the
option of taking the call or letting the call go to
voicemail.
Chapter 1: Introduction
System Overview
When an email comes in, CyberGenie's text-tospeech feature can also provide a way for you to
listen to your email on the spot without having to
return to your computer.
The CG 2400 system can support up to 10 handsets
and 20 mailbox users. You can use the handsets not
only to make external calls but also to place internal
calls from one handset user to another. And you can
use your handset to call your virtual personal
assistant, CyberGenie, to check messages, place
calls, or leave reminders for yourself.
With CyberGenie, you can also make use of an
advanced automatic speech recognition (ASR)
technology that allows you to perform many of the
telephony functions available through interactive
“conversations” with CyberGenie. CyberGenie follows
your verbal instructions for such tasks as placing a
call, retrieving your messages, or recording new
outgoing messages.
1.Fax notification will provide fax header information—who the
fax came from and when it was received. This feature is supported only in Windows 98. It is not supported by later versions
of Windows, such as Windows 2000 or WinME.
2.Requires Caller ID service from the phone company.

Chapter 2: Installation
Maintaining Battery Charge
Fully charged batteries provide 15 hours of calling
time or 100 hours of standby time. The rechargeable
nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack should last
for a year or longer under normal conditions.
Setting up the Base Station
Prepare the base station but DO NOT connect the
USB cable to the computer yet.
To set up the base station, you will need:
•
Base station
•
Desk stand or wall mount with screws
•
Base station power supply
•
USB cable
•
One or two phone cords (depending on how many
analog phone lines you plan to use)
Choosing the Best Location for
your Base Station
Before choosing a location for your base station,
consider the following:
•
The base station’s antenna is designed to
generate a spherical radiation pattern. The more
centrally located the base station is within desired
coverage area, the better.
19
CG 2400 User Guide
•
Although CyberGenie’s radio system is capable of
transmitting through most common line-of-site
obstructions (walls, floors, partitions, doors, and
furniture), the signal strength is slightly
diminished by obstructions. Position the base
station in a place that will reduce the number of
obstructions to high phone use areas.
•
In general, the higher the base station is from the
floor the better. This reduces the need for
transmission through furniture, counters, etc.
•
A metallic obstruction degrades the signal more
than a non-metallic one. If you have metal
heating/cooling ducts in your walls, mounting
your base station near the ceiling may also
interfere with transmission. In this case, placing
the base station between 3 feet above the floor
and 1.5 feet below the ceiling will give best
results.
•
Keep your base station clear of other electronic
devices, most specifically: microwave ovens,
television sets, stereos, fluorescent lighting and
other wireless devices (such as cordless
telephones, baby monitors, wireless LAN
hardware, CB radios, and video senders).
•
Although your base station must be connected to
your PC at all times to operate in full function
mode, keep the base station away from close
proximity with your PC and monitor. A 9-foot USB
cable is included for a broader range when
positioning your base station.
Other things to avoid:
20
•
Heat sources (radiators, air ducts, direct sunlight,
etc.)
•
Excessive moisture (rain, showers, sinks,
humidifiers, etc.)
•
Extremely high or low temperatures (the base
station’s operating temperature range is 0°–40°
Celsius, or 32°–104° Fahrenheit)
•
Mechanical vibration
You have two mounting options: desk mount or wall
mount. Before beginning assembly, decide which to
use:
•
With the desk mount, you can place the base
station on any flat surface and reposition it easily.
•
The wall mount requires permanent installation
but does not take up desk or counter space.

Installing the
CyberGenie@Work Software
CyberGenie@Work is the software that drives the
CG 2400 system. It provides an interface between
your public phone service, the base station, your
computer and the handset users.
CyberGenie’s Call-by-name
Feature and Microsoft Outlook
The Messaging Application Programming Interface,
or MAPI, is a Microsoft standard for messaging
software that allows different types of message
information (email, voicemail, contacts lists, etc.) to
interact through a common interface.
NOTE: Microsoft
Outlook Express
is not MAPIcompliant.
The CG 2400 system is designed to work seamlessly
with Microsoft Outlook and other MAPI-compliant
software (such as Windows Messaging) by using the
contacts list to create a speech-activated dialer (callby-name). If you don’t have Microsoft Outlook, you
can create a contacts list in CyberGenie@Work.
23
CG 2400 User Guide
NOTE: The call-byname feature lets you
ask CyberGenie to dial
numbers from your
contacts list if they
have been activated for
speech recognition.
If you have names and numbers set up in Microsoft
Outlook, the CyberGenie@Work installation
Configuration Wizard lets you activate any name in
the book for speech recognition. A minimum of
contact data is required:
•
First or last name
•
At least one phone number
You can use CyberGenie to set up your contacts list,
or, if you use Microsoft Outlook, you can integrate
your contacts list in Microsoft Outlook with your
CyberGenie program.
How the Programs Integrate
CyberGenie alone lets you set up your contacts list
for call-by-name recognition or downloading to your
handset phone book. It also lets you listen to
voicemail messages from the PC, your handset or by
calling in from remote locations to check messages.
Listening to Your
Email Messages
If you want to also be able to listen to your email
messages, CyberGenie@Work requires a MAPIcompliant program like Microsoft Outlook.
If you are using Microsoft Outlook, you have the
option of telling CyberGenie to use your Microsoft
Outlook database instead of its own. It will add fields
for each contact record for speech activation or for
downloading contact information to your handset.
When you add a new contact record through
CyberGenie@Work, it will be added to your Microsoft
Outlook database.
When you install the CyberGenie@Work software, it
automatically detects whether MAPI is available, and
prompts you for what actions, if any, you need to
take.
Message Management Options
If neither MAPI nor
Microsoft Outlook is
installed
24
You will be able to listen to voicemail messages only.
If you want to be able to listen to both voicemail and
If Microsoft Outlook

MAPI is not
You will be able to listen to voicemail messages only.
To be able to listen to both voicemail and email
messages, you will need to integrate Microsoft
Outlook with CyberGenie and make sure that
Microsoft Outlook is properly configured to support
MAPI. (See “Ensuring Microsoft Outlook Support” on
page 25.)
If you do not choose to integrate the two programs,
CyberGenie will still provide full voicemail and
contact support.
If both MAPI and
Microsoft Outlook
are installed
Chapter 2: Installation
email messages, you will need to install Microsoft
Outlook.
CyberGenie is able to access voicemail and email
via Microsoft Outlook’s folders, as well as support
call-by-name and phone book downloads from your
Microsoft Outlook contacts database.
Even if both MAPI and Microsoft Outlook are
installed, CyberGenie does not assume that you want
it to automatically configure your voicemail to
function through Microsoft Outlook. During setup,
you will have the option of determining whether you
want to integrate Microsoft Outlook with your
CyberGenie system.
Ensuring Microsoft Outlook
Support
If you use Microsoft Outlook, you will need to add the
MAPI components by installing Microsoft Outlook’s
Corporate or Workgroup E-mail Service component
(if not already installed) before installing
CyberGenie. This allows CyberGenie@Work to
implement the unified messaging functions that
make it possible for you to access your voicemail,
email, and faxes from one source.
NOTE: Procedures will
vary depending on the
version of Microsoft
Outlook you are using.
To add this component to Microsoft

Congratulations! You have now successfully installed
CyberGenie@Work on your computer.
You can expand your CG 2400 system by adding
handsets. You can also configure a base station to
share a phone line with your PC’s fax/modem card.
Subscribing Additional
Handsets
Chapter 2: Installation
Other Hardware Installation
Options
Your system comes with one handset, but additional
handsets can be purchased. The system will support
up to 10 handsets. (See “Subscribing a Handset to
the Base Station” on page 100 for procedures.)
Using Your Handset with Other
DA 202 Base Stations
The handset that comes with your system is presubscribed to the base station it came with. However,
if you use more than one base station, you can also
subscribe the handset to multiple base stations. For
example, you can use the same handset with your
base station at the office and the base station at
home. (See “Base Stations and Your Handset” on
page 193 for how to use additional base stations.)
Sharing a Base Station Line
with Other Devices
If you want to share your base station’s Line 1 with a
fax/modem, you need to configure both the
hardware and software to support it. This option is
available only for Line 1. (See “Setting General
Properties” on page 91.)

The User
Interfaces
The Three Interfaces
An interface is a way of interacting with a system. In
the CG 2400 system, you have three basic user
interfaces:
Handset User
Interface (HUI)
The interface you use when you access features and
functions by pressing keys on the handset keypad or
by using the menus on the handset display.
Speech User
Interface (SUI)
When you talk to CyberGenie to access your mail,
place calls or change your outgoing messages
(incoming call greetings and voicemail greetings),
you are using the speech user interface.
Graphical User
Interface (GUI)
The software application, CyberGenie@Work, from
which you can set up and configure your system, add
users and handsets, update your contacts list,
monitor calls, place calls, and more. The GUI
includes online help.
You cannot combine speech and handset commands
on the handset. If you start using speech commands
during a procedure then switch to the keypad, the
speech interface becomes inactive until the current
call activity is ended.
45
CG 2400 User Guide
Handset User Interface
The handset keypad includes keys that perform
specific functions. There are also menu options you
can view and select from on the handset display.
Modes of Operation
Handsets can be used with the system in either of
two modes:
Full function mode
Standalone mode
When CyberGenie@Work is running on your PC, the
handset is in full function mode.
If the PC is turned off or the USB cable is unplugged,
handsets can still be used in standalone mode as
long as the base station is powered. This lets you
place and receive external calls but does not provide
other CyberGenie functions.
Basic Handset Procedures
Once initial configuration is complete and the
handset is fully charged, you can use it to place
outgoing calls and receive incoming calls.
If you set up contacts for speech activation while
running the Setup program, you can also use
CyberGenie’s call-by-name feature.
To turn the handset on and off:

Configuration
Once your CG 2400 system is installed, you can
configure it (set it up) more fully to fit your specific
needs. You can also modify features that you set up
during installation.
CyberGenie@Work provides two avenues to full
system configuration:
The Wizards Window
The Configuration
Window
Configuration wizards step you through the
sequences for adding, changing or deleting data for
your phone lines, users and contacts.
The options available from the configuration window
provide more control over the configuration options
(including some options not available from the
wizards) but require a better understanding of the
system.
You might want to start with the wizards, then later,
when more familiar with the system, return to the
Configuration window to refine your setup even
more.

After the Setup program has completed system
installation and initial setup, the Wizards window will
appear. You can also access the Wizards window at

CG 2400 User Guide
Two-party calls
Two-party calls involve two parties: a call received
from an external line, a call placed from a handset to
an external line, or an internal call from one handset
to another. For two-party calls, you can:
Dial a call by putting the first call on hold and dialing
a second number while the first call waits. When you
use this feature, it turns your two-party call into a
three-party call.
Transfer an existing call to another handset, to
voicemail, or to an external line.
Reject a call by sending the call to the rejection
message, after which the caller is disconnected.
Cancel any current call operation.
Three-party calls
Three-party calls involve three parties: conference
calls, or calls that have one party on hold while the
handset user places or receives another call. For
three-party calls in progress, you can:
Transfer the conference call to the non-originating
party, which will remove the call originator without
disconnecting the call.
Conference a call by dialing a third party while you
have an existing call on hold, then conference all
three parties into the call session.
Reconnect the call to the original call configuration,
disconnecting the third party from the call.
Cancel any current call operation.
Incoming calls
Incoming calls originate either from an external line
or from one handset to another. For incoming calls,
you can:
Redirect Redirect the incoming call to another
handset or voicemail.
Listen Listen to an incoming message when a call
goes to voicemail. The listen feature is only available
for external calls.

Call functions are available depending on whether
the call is a two or three-party call or an incoming
call. All functions assume that you have a call in
progress displayed on the Call Progress window:

dashes “-” and parentheses “()” to make your phone
numbers more legible (for example, 800-555-1212
or (800) 555-1212) but the system will ignore these
characters. To include an extension with a phone
number, use a comma “,” to separate the phone
number from the extension number (for example,
800-555-1212, 321). Depending on the configuration
of the system you are dialing, you may need to
include extra commas “,” to allow more time between
when the phone is first answered and the prompt for
the extension number. Each comma represents a 3
second pause. For example, if you enter (800) 5551212,,,321 you will have a 9-second pause before
the extension number is dialed.

What Unified Messaging
Does
Unified messaging provides a way of accessing your
voice or email messages from a single source.
The CG 2400 system streamlines message retrieval
so you can receive all of your voicemail, reminders
and email from a single location. Working with your
PC, the CG 2400 system provides the following
unified messaging features:
•
Remote message retrieval.
•
Message notification when you have messages
waiting in your personal mailbox.
•
Voicemail service for multiple users.
•
Message notification, either at the handset or at a
remote external number, for incoming messages,
including voicemail and email.
•
Text-to-speech email conversion, which allows
you to “listen” to emails from your handset or
remotely.
•
Notification of fax arrival, and remote retrieval of
fax header information (who sent the fax and
when it came in). This feature is supported by
Windows 98 only.
•
Customizable welcome greetings and voicemail
greetings (for both system and personal
mailboxes), based on time of day, day of week,
and other factors.
143
CG 2400 User Guide
Some of the unified features are set up from the PC;
others are set up and used from the handset.
While this chapter addresses the actions needed from
the PC to utilize unified messaging on an overview
level, the focus is primarily on how to use the unified
messaging features available from the handset.
Unified Messaging Features
from the PC
CyberGenie@Work uses one of two destinations for
routing incoming messages:
System inbox The general mailbox. Users with
rights to the system inbox can retrieve these
messages.
Personal mailboxes A user for whom a personal
mailbox has been set up can retrieve messages
from that mailbox.
Two types of incoming messages can be managed:
Voicemails
Emails
144
Incoming calls can be routed to a specific user's
mailbox. (Reminder messages, or memos, are
treated as voicemails.) Calls that are not sent to a
personal mailbox are sent to the system inbox.
If you're using Microsoft Outlook, you can set it up to
route email to specific user mailboxes as well.
Microsoft Outlook uses a series of user-created rules
that control how incoming email messages are
received, and how they are routed once received. For
more information on using Microsoft Outlook's rules
feature, refer to your Microsoft Outlook manual or
online help. If you don't use Microsoft Outlook, all
emails are routed to the system inbox by default.
Only users who have been assigned access to the
system inbox will be able to receive message
notification for and retrieve messages from the
system inbox.
To assign a user access to the system
inbox:
NOTE: To set up a new
user or change user
information, see “User
Setup” on page 105.
1. Access the Configuration window.
2. Click
Users, then click the specific user to
whom you want to assign access.

4. Click the Give me access to the system inbox
checkbox.
Setting up a User's Message
Notification
You can set up the system to notify a user when
messages are waiting in the user's personal mailbox.
If you carry your handset with you, you can receive
message notification while you are away from your
desk or outside your home. If you designate an
external number, the system will call that number
with a notification message. A good external number
to consider would be your cell phone.
If the user has rights to the system inbox, you can
also set up for that user to be notified for system
messages.
This feature will also notify the user who has
recorded a reminder message. (See “Reminder
Messages” on page 147.)
When the user has a message, a

whom you want to set up message notification.
3. Click the Messaging tab.
4. Select from the following options:
Do not call me If the user has an assigned
handset, this option will not affect the message
notification icon on the handset. It will, however,
prevent any other form of message notification.
Call me on my handset This option is only
available if the user has a handset assigned. (See
“Assigning a Handset to a User” on page 102.)
Call me at my ________ number This option
is only available if at least one phone number has
been set up for this user on the External Number
tab. If this option is available, click the down
arrow to view, and select from a list of available
numbers. Message notification will be forwarded
to the number selected, and the user can call in
to CyberGenie to retrieve messages. (See
“Message Retrieval” on page 147.)
Call attempts (1 to 3) The number of times
CyberGenie will place a notification call to the
user when an external notification number is
selected, or if the option Notify me on my
handset is selected. Use the up and down arrow
keys to adjust the number of tries.
Attempt interval (2 to 60 minutes) The
frequency with which notification attempts will be
placed by CyberGenie. Note that the first
notification will occur at the defined interval
rather than at the time the message is left.

“Assigning Access to the System Inbox” on
page 145), the user will be notified for system
messages as well as messages for that user's
personal mailbox.

CyberGenie Greeting
Messages
CyberGenie@Work provides different outgoing
messages that you can change or modify from the
handset:
150
Welcome greetings
If an external phone line is configured to route calls
directly to CyberGenie, this is the main greeting a
caller hears when a call comes in. The greeting can
be set differently for business hours and
non-business hours.
Voicemail greetings
When a caller cannot reach the desired party, the call
is usually routed to voicemail: either the system
Rejection message
You can direct unwanted calls to a rejection message.
The rejection message will play, then the caller will
be disconnected. (See “Rejecting a Call” on
page 124.)
NOTE: You can
configure one line for
business use and the
other for personal use,
and have a different
welcome greeting for
each.
All greeting messages can be recorded at your
computer if you have a microphone connected.
Otherwise, greeting messages can be recorded from
a handset or an external line.
Chapter 6: Unified Messaging
inbox, or a personal mailbox. Different greeting
messages can be recorded for each. System inbox
greeting messages can be recorded by any user with
access to the system inbox. Personal mailbox
greetings are specific to each user and are accessible
by user name (and user PIN code if a PIN has been
set up for that user).
For any welcome or mailbox greeting, you can create
a main message as the default message, and a
temporary message, such as for holidays, that can
be set without overwriting the main message.
To view the default messages that come prerecorded with the CG 2400 system, see “Prerecorded Messages” on page 201.
Call Routing and How It
Affects Messages
As described in “Setting Call Routing” on page 95,
you can configure CyberGenie@Work to route
incoming calls to all handsets, a single handset, to
the general system greeting (from which the caller
can select a user or user mailbox to be further routed
to), or to a specific user's mailbox. You can also set
different routings based on the office hours.
Changing Welcome Greetings
If the external phone lines are configured to direct
calls to the Auto Attendant, the CyberGenie@Work
software determines which recording the caller is
greeted with based on defined business and non-
151
CG 2400 User Guide
business hours. These hours can be changed as
described in “Setting Business Hours” on page 93.
The other option for a welcome greeting is the
temporary greeting, which provides a welcome
message for greeting callers with a special recording
that is used to temporarily take the place of the main
system greeting, such as The office is currently
closed for the holiday.

CG 2400 User Guide
How Call Sessions Work
Any call activity is referred to as a call session. Call
sessions can be tracked on the Call Progress window.
(See “Call Progress Control” on page 117.)
Call sessions are also recorded in the call log. (See
“The Call Log Window” on page 135.)
Each handset operation involves one air channel. A
single call session uses one or two air channels,
depending on the nature of the call:
•
An external call (incoming or outgoing) uses a
single channel.
•
A call from a handset to CyberGenie also uses a
single air channel.
•
Calls between two handsets, however, use two air
channels, one for each handset.
Your CG 2400 system supports up to six
simultaneous air channels for a maximum of three
handset-to-handset sessions if there are no handsetto-CyberGenie calls or external calls at the same
time.
The system also supports a maximum of two
simultaneous handset-to-CyberGenie calls.
Incoming and Outgoing Calls
All calls that you receive or place with the handset
are either external (involving an outside line) or
internal (handset to handset, or handset to
CyberGenie).
You can park a call (put it on hold so another user
can retrieve it), retrieve a parked call, or transfer a
call to another user.
You can also send an unwanted call to a rejection
message.
158
When a call comes in, the handset display identifies
the source of the call.
With external calls, the handset shows available
caller ID information if you have caller ID service
available from your public telephone service. If the
caller has ID blocking, the handset will show
Blocked.
NOTE: You can set up
custom rings to
distinguish between call
types. (See “Changing
the Ringer Sound” on
page 179.)
If the line does not have caller ID, the handset shows
which line the call is coming in on (Line 1 or Line 2).
NOTE: You can control
how CyberGenie routes
incoming calls. (See
“Setting Call Routing”
on page 95.)
To receive a call:
With internal calls (calls from other handset users),
the handset shows the user’s name and extension
number.
Chapter 7: Calls from the Handset
Receiving a Call
The user is notified of incoming calls either through a
ring, by a flashing indicator light on the handset and
with a blinking
icon on the handset display.
1. When a call comes in, press
to receive the
call. If you do not take the call, it will be routed to
either the system inbox, your personal voicemail,
or back to the Auto Attendant, based on the
system’s call routing configuration.
2. When finished with the call, press
.
Placing an External Call
There are four ways to place calls from the handset:
Dial from the keypad
Dial a number with the handset keypad (either predial or dial after dial tone is heard).

Tips for Using CyberGenie
PC Performance
The CG 2400 system shares resources with other
software on your PC. Applications that require large
amounts of memory and processor time impact
CyberGenie’s ability to recognize speech commands.
If you experience delays of more than one or two
seconds during a speech command, try closing any
open software applications to see if
CyberGenie@Work will speed up.
CyberGenie Pronunciation
When setting up a user or contact name, you can
correct CyberGenie’s pronunciation and
understanding of the name by entering it
phonetically in the pronunciation fields. There are a
few rules that make this easy:
•
Replace vowels and/or consonants with similar
sounding vowels and/or consonants.
•
Capitalize or duplicate vowels.
•
Insert a dash to silence or lengthen vowels by
breaking up the name.
•
Alter the intonation of a name by re-writing it.

background noise, but short, loud noises can
interfere with successful speech recognition.
The following can negatively affect system
performance:
•
Jewelry rubbing on the plastic of the phone.
•
Surrounding noises (such as loud television, dog
barking, sneezing, and so on).
•
Proximity to transmitting devices operating at 2.4
GHz such as wireless LANs, cordless phones and
video sending units.
•
Proximity to interfering devices such as
microwave ovens.
In environments where background noise poses a
continuous problem, use the keypad commands
when working with CyberGenie. (Once you start
using keypad commands, speech commands are no
longer available for the rest of the CyberGenie
session.)
More is better
198
The more information you give, the easier it is for
CyberGenie to understand what you say. For
example, say Read the Previous One instead of
Previous to move to an earlier message in the mail
system.
Statements,
not questions
Pronounce words clearly as you would during
everyday conversation. Whispering or shouting
makes it difficult for CyberGenie to understand you.
Phrase your commands as statements, not
questions. For example, if you want to record a
memo, you should say Record a memo!, not
Record a memo?
Yes and no
When CyberGenie asks you a question, most often
your response will be Yes or No. If CyberGenie has
trouble understanding, try saying Yes, please; Yep;
No, thanks or Nope, or pressing 1 on the handset
for Yes or 2 for No.
Asking for help
You can ask for help at any time by saying something
like I need help, or Help me, and CyberGenie will
guide you. You can also press 0 at any time when
using the handset to get CyberGenie’s help.
Calling by name
You can use phrases similar to the examples below to
call someone at home, the office, a mobile phone, or
a pager number: John Smith or John Smith on his
pager or John Smith at work or John Smith on
his cell phone number.
Appendices
Speak normally
Sometimes CyberGenie is not sure of the name and
will ask you to confirm it. You can cancel the call by
saying No, Don’t; or Stop when CyberGenie
announces that the call is about to be placed.

Configuring Your MAPI
Application Correctly
Once you have installed the CyberGenie@Work
software, if an error message displays saying that
Windows Messaging Service (WMS) or Microsoft
Outlook is not configured properly, you will need to
check the Mail options set in the Windows Control
Panel:
NOTE: This section is
applicable only if you
choose to integrate
Microsoft Outlook with
CyberGenie.
1. Go to Control Panel, then double-click the Mail
icon (in some cases it might be Mail and Fax). A
dialog box with three tabs—Services, Delivery
and Addressing—will appear.
2. For CyberGenie@Work to function fully, Personal
Folders should be available in the Services list
box. If not, click the Add button and select
Personal Folders.
Windows will ask for the location of a .pst file. It
is recommended that you use the default location
(C:\Windows in Windows 98 and C:\WINNT in
Windows 2000) and save the file as uwastore.pst
as this will ensure that the .pst file will be backed
up and saved during uninstall. Otherwise, if this
file is damaged or lost, you will have to reenter
your contact information.
3. After Personal Folders is added to the Services
list, set the Delivery option in the Delivery tab
to Personal Folders. CyberGenie@Work uses
the Delivery setting to determine where your
incoming email is stored, and where to save your
incoming voicemail and reminders.
Make sure you set the delivery option on the
Delivery tab to a Personal Folder, not an Exchange
Server. CyberGenie does not support Exchange
Server as the mail delivery location.
Personal Folders should be set up as above. WMS for
Windows NT has a Configuration Wizard which guides
you through setup. If you are running the Inbox
setup wizard, select the Manually Configure
204
Microsoft Outlook can be installed on a system which
has only WMS. However, you should not try to install
WMS on a system that already has Microsoft Outlook
setup since there might be a conflict with some of the
files. When Microsoft Outlook is installed on top of
WMS, verify the Mail settings either in Control
Panel or by selecting Tools>Services in Microsoft
Outlook.
Appendices
Information Services option to make the above
changes, as otherwise the Wizard installs Exchange
Server and MS Mail PostOffice, which then interferes
with CyberGenie@Work’s functions.
Importing Contacts
into Microsoft Outlook
or Windows
Messaging
In Microsoft Outlook, contacts can be imported from
another .pst file. The Import option is available in the
File menu.
In WMS, though the Import option is available, it
allows import of only .mmf or .pab (Personal Address
Book) files. To be able to get the contact information
from another .pst file (the source file), you will need
to copy the source file into the directory where your
own local .pst file is located (most probably called
uwastore.pst), delete the local file and rename the
source .pst file to replace the local .pst file. Care
must be taken while doing this since you could lose
messages in the user accounts that were created by
CyberGenie@Work in the local .pst file.

Entering Non-Numeric
Symbols from the Handset
Keypad
You can use the keypad to enter letters and symbols
from the handset.
This feature is used when selecting a name to dial
from the handset phone book (see “Placing a Call
Using the Phone Book” on page 175) or when
renaming the base station. (See “Renaming a Base
Station” on page 194.)
Each numeric key represents several letters, symbols
or numbers. To enter a character other than the first
character for that key, quickly press the key to rotate
through available characters.
For example, to enter the letter N, you would rapidly
press the 6 key twice.
