Abstract: Voice-controlled customized commands including customization of the command to be preformed, such as a number to be dialed to make a connection with an address of a corporate voice dialing system, and the speech pattern or utterance which may be enrolled by a user to invoke the command can be used by other users, if authorized by the enrolling user. When a current user wants to use a customized command enrolled by another user, a preferably voice actuated command is invoked to cause the search of a database containing a page of customized commands for each user and the return of commands to which access of a current user is authorized in accordance with aliases established by the enrolling user. The returned commands are preferably presented to the current user as a menu from which the current user can make a selection and obtain execution of the authorized command.
