Name Record by Subscriber
The Name Record by Subscriber feature gives the system
administrator the option of having all subscribers record their
own names. If the feature is activated and a new subscriber
logs in, the DEFINITY AUDIX system explains how to record
a name and permits no other activity until the name is
recorded.The recording is used:
- To voice a name in the system greeting
- To verify a message address to the sender
- To identify the sender of a message to a recipient
- To voice names in the personal and system directories
Subscribers can also access the feature at any time from the
subscriber administration menu to rerecord their own names.
The system administrator can always rerecord any name.

The administrator can disable the feature at any time and
begin recording names for all new subscribers. This does not
affect the names already recorded by subscribers. Similarly,
turning the feature on does not affect the names already
recorded by the system administrator.
The subscriber has an added
responsibility to maintain the
name record; updating or changing
it as necessary.
The name record function is not
designed to replace personal
greetings; the recorded name
must be brief.
If this feature is active, new subscribers
cannot proceed after logging
in until they have recorded
their names or had the system
administrator record their names.
The system audits the recorded
names and reports the unrecorded
names to the system
Subscribers cannot record their
names during the periodic audit
and backup of names carried out
by the system.
The Name Record by Subscriber feature can save the system administrator a
great deal of time. Also, some subscribers simply prefer to record their own
names to ensure the pronunciation and to add a more personalized tone to their
Since subscribers can record their own names, they can also provide other
information at the same time, such as “ John Parrot, on vacation until October
13th.” This information would be played to subscribers who address mail to John
Parrot; upon hearing that he is on vacation, the sender may decide not to send
him the message.
If one individual, such as the system administrator or a professional announcer,
has already recorded the names on the system, subscribers should be careful
about recording their names themselves. People often don’t like the sound of
their own voices. As described in the Feature Operation section of this chapter,
each subscriber should be warned to play back his or her recording
(press ) and make certain it is preferable to the previous recording before
approving it. Subscribers can always rerecord their names, but cannot return to
the original recording.
Any subscriber who has the Call Answer Primary Announcement Set
administered as Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (TDD) on the
Subscriber or Class of Service screen should record his/her name using a TTY.
Voiced names do not display on a TTY and TTY callers to the subscriber’s
mailbox would see nothing for a voiced name. TTY users have 12 seconds to
type their name when recording their name.
