Simple Dialing and Answering
NexTalk-VM puts dialing and answering at your finger tips. You can
answer a call in NexTalk-VM by simply pressing the ANSWER button. Using
a compatible voice modem, NexTalk-VM will connect to any TTY or modem,
and will even send your customized greeting to the caller as soon as
the connection is made. With NexTalk-VM, you can make calls to both
TTYs and high speed modems using the same modem you have for fax and
internet connections. Visual and audible alerts inform you of incoming
NexTalk-VM's answering machine accepts TTY and standard modem calls
unattended. It includes customizable greetings, paging support, and
user-defined number of rings until answer. Messages can be viewed,
saved, deleted or printed. Paging support allows TAP (telocator
alphanumeric protocol) compatible pagers to receive your text messages.
You can make calls directly from one of the multiple phone book
categories you create, each of which can have an unlimited number of
entries. Phone numbers can be organized into two types of calls:
direct-dialed TTY and modem calls.
pre-defined phone book entries for calls through relay services.
With NexTalk-VM, you can easily keep track of your conversations and
messages by category. NexTalk-VM makes it easy to find, view, delete
and print your conversations and answering machine messages. The Viewer
will allow you to split conversations vertically or horizontally, show
erased characters during a call, select screen colors, fonts and sizes,
and unscramble TTY text. And, you can create the custom categories that
work best for you.
NexTalk's unique vertical or horizontal split screen feature lets you
converse more naturally. Designed to be more like face-to-face
conversations, the split-screen options allow both parties of a 300
baud or higher connection to type at the same time. When you print your
conversation, it comes out just the way it looks on your screen.
NexTalk's paging support feature lets you receive a page whenever the
NexTalk answering machine receives a message. If your paging service is
TAP compliant, you can have the text of your message forwarded to your
NexTalk-VM features "auto-detection" of the type of call for both
incoming and outgoing calls.

You must subscribe to Caller ID through your local phone company. If
you have Caller ID on your phone line, when a new call comes in
NexTalk-VM will display the calling party's information on its ring
alert form. It will also display this information at the top of an open
Distinctive Ring is another service you can purchase from your local
phone company. If you want to share your phone line with other
answering devices such as fax machines, answering machines or a second
modem, you can subscribe to this service. It produces different ring
patterns for two or more phone numbers assigned to the same phone line.
NexTalk-VM can now be set to listen for a specific ring pattern and
only answer calls that match that pattern. Your other answering devices
must also support distinctive ring in order to share the line.
Now, when you call in to your NexTalk-VM answering machine and provide
an access code and password, you can view new and old messages and
change your answering machine greeting message remotely.
