Abstract

The "Voiced Mail" system of M.I.T.'s Architecture Machine Group uses synthesis-by-rule to allow remote access to an electronic message system. A voice storage audio message system is integrated with the text message database, to allow users to send and receive voice replies to text messages and vice versa. Message access is interactive, controlled by Touch-Tones sent by the user, and incorporates many features of conventional on-line mail systems.
