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 “Say 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 3 seconds, you will hear “closer
please.” If you still don’t respond, the handset beeps and
the programming procedure cancels.
• When the voice prompt says “Enter the phone number
then press 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.
• Follow the voice prompts for
additional guidance.
• You cannot 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.
