Speech filing-office system for principals

by J. D. Gould, S. J. Boies
Business people spend most of their time communicating, or attempting to communicate, with others. We briefly describe our ideas about these communication activities and their resulting problems, and then discuss an experimental tool we developed to help business people solve some of their communication problems. This tool, called the Speech Filing System, allows users to send messages to anybody in the world. The system offers powerful editing, filing, retrieval, and message distribution and control functions, using pushbutton telephones as the terminals.
