option unchecked, messages will be played in reverse order (newest
Note: Urgent messages will be played before non-urgent ones in any case.
|Play Voice Message Time and Date|| Genie states the time and date each voice message was sent during message
Note: Even if you don’t choose this option, you can always hear the time a message was sent by pressing the Call button and saying "Time" during or just after the message is played.
|Play Text Message Time and Date||Genie states the time and date each text message was sent.|
|Play Voice Messages on Logout||
Plays unread voice mail messages after you issue the Logout command and before you are logged out. If you have unread voice messages, Genie announces the number of messages and asks if you want to play them before you log out. If you answer yes, Genie begins to read the messages. Unread voice mail messages are played just as when you say, Play voice messages. If a message was sent to a group, Genie announces the name of the group called.
Cancel the message playback by pressing the DND button on the Badge.
This is useful in case you have a response which needs to be communicated to another colleague or otherwise addressed before you leave your shift.
|Fast Call Setup|| Specifies whether you want to take advantage of fast call setup.
|Announce Through Speaker||Controls the way the badge plays call and message announcements when you
are using a headset (or managed lanyard):
Using a Headset with your Badge -When a headset is plugged into the badge, all audio plays through the headset by default. Consequently, if you don’t wear your headset all the time, you may not hear an incoming announcement, and you may not know that someone is trying to contact you.
If you select Announce Through Speaker, you can leave your headset plugged in, and simply put it on to communicate after you hear the announcement. If you turn on Announce Through Speaker and you are wearing your headset when a call comes in, you may not hear an announcement in a noisy environment (because it plays through the speaker); however, you will still hear the call or message through the headset.
Note: When your headset is not plugged in, all calls, messages, and announcements play through the speaker, as usual, regardless of the Announce Through Speaker setting.
|Accept Calls Using Buttons Only||Specifies whether you want to allow the use of voice commands to accept or
reject calls. Enabling buttons-only answering is useful in certain high-noise
For example, background noise can cause poor speech recognition in some situations, resulting in the Genie repeatedly saying "I'm sorry, I didn't understand". In other situations, background noise can cause the Genie to prematurely accept or reject calls without user input.
