VoiceTone For Rotary Dial Phones

When Advanced Telecom Services began in 1989, it wanted a differentiator

in the IVR marketplace.  It wanted something so that it could deliver value to the caller over what other 800 number IVR and 900 number service bureaus offered.

That differentiator was VoiceTone — ATS’s exclusive voice recognition software that enabled rotary dial callers to say their selection as opposed to pressing it on a touchtone phone.

While speech recognition might seem commonplace today, back in 1990, it was far from common.  Rotary callers were simply not able to interact with automated telephone systems until Advanced Telecom Services’ VoiceTone came on the scene.

And, back in 1990, this was a significant market as 38.5% of all households used rotary dial phones!  (See Page 199 of Adult Literacy and New Technologies).

ABC used a 900 number for voting.

put up years ago suddenly show up on another site.  Such is the case with an article about television programs using 900 numbers.

Majestic51 bills itself as The Ultimate Online Men’s Magazine.  It also has a section about The World of the Weird which is where they put our article.  Makes you wonder, but hey guys, we appreciate the publicity anyway.

The article mentions the 900 number that Advanced Telecom Services did for ABC’s Wide World of Sports a few years ago.  During a figure skating competition in Boston, viewers were able to eliminate the traditional figure skating judges and vote for the skater of their choice through a 900 number or via text message voting.

A great idea, no doubt.  More television programs should be seeking non-traditional revenue through 900 numbers and premium SMS voting programs like ABC’s Wide World of Sports did.
