The DC Autodialler
A voice controlled data recorder and automatic telephone dialer.
Good afternoon. Today I’d like to tell you about our latest product, the DC Autodialler. The DC Autodialler lets you record telephone numbers by speaking. It can also dial telephone numbers automatically. We expect it to be a very popular product.
First, I’ll tell you the main features of the ‘autodialler. Then I’ll describe its physical characteristics. Finally, I’ll explain how to see it.
The Autodialler has four important features. It has a very sophisticated speech analyzer which allows it to record names and telephone numbers. It can recognize up to 5000 common North American names. It has a large memory which lets you record up to 2500 names and telephone numbers. It has a 4-centimeter by 2-centimeter liquid crystal display which provides a sharp image. Ti uses lithium batteries which last for two year.
The Autodialler is very compact. It measures 10 centimeters by 5 centimeters by 0.5 centimeters. It’s made of very light but hard plastic, and weights only 150 grams. It comes in three colors: black, silver and wine red.
Now, I’ll show you how easy the Autodialler is to use. There are only three buttons: a “new” button, a “find” button, and a “dial” button. To enter a new name and phone number, press the “new” button. Then say the person’s name. When the name is displayed say the telephone number. To find a name, press the “find” button and say the person’s name. When the name is displayed you may dial the number, change the name or telephone number, or delete the information. To dial the number, point the Autodialler at your telephone and press the “dial” button.
As you can see, the Autodialler has many useful features, it’s very compacted, and it’s easy to use. I’m sure you’ll agree that there will be a large market for it.
