Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9946920A1] Access to the world wide web is achieved by using a traditional telephone to contact a host computer which has a voice-capable modem, a telephone-driven audio WWW browser (TAWB) and a connection to the Internet. The TAWB comprises a telephony interface, a digital voice processing module (DVP), an interchange between the telephony interface and the DVP, an audio document renderer, a command and control module, and an Internet interface. Additionally, the system contains a friendly server for storing information. The system relies on the presence of the WWW which can be described as a collection of WWW servers connected to the Internet.
