Patent Number: 6,167,116

Title: Computer communications device

Abstract: A computer peripheral device for voice and synthesized voice communication is disclosed. The device serves in place of a telephone handset, in a telephone mode of operation, and as a remote-control computer-based media center in a voice control mode of operation, without requiring the use of headphones. Thus the device frees integrated multimedia and voice-command computer control operations from the physical limitations of the workstation, with its keyboard and CRT. The device also integrates telephone communication functions, including caller ID into a computer remote control interface, thereby providing modal flexibility, minimizing disruption and increasing operator efficiency.
