Abstract:     A telephone voice mail messaging system for performing recognition of characters included in a telephone message left by a caller includes: speaker recognition means, responsive to the telephone message, for extracting a voice model of the caller from the telephone message and comparing the voice model of the caller against a plurality of pre-obtained voice model's respectively associated with a plurality of potential callers to find a pre-obtained voice model from among the plurality of pre-obtained voice models that matches the voice model of the caller and, if the matching pre-obtained voice model is found, then the speaker recognition means identifying at least one pre-obtained set of characters attributed to a potential caller from among the plurality of potential callers associated with the matching pre-obtained voice model; character spotting means, responsive to the telephone message, for identifying sets of characters in the telephone message; and comparator means for comparing characters of the at least one pre-obtained set of characters identified by the speaker recognition means against characters of a set of characters identified by the character spotting means and, if the characters match, then outputting the characters of the at least one pre-obtained set of characters as representing the set of characters left by the caller as part of the telephone message.

What is claimed is:     1. A telephone voice mail messaging system for performing recognition of characters included in a telephone message left by a caller, the system comprising:
  • speaker recognition means, responsive to the telephone message, for extracting a voice model of the caller from the telephone message and comparing the voice model of the caller against a plurality of pre-obtained voice models respectively associated with a plurality of potential callers to find a pre-obtained voice model from among the plurality of pre-obtained voice models that matches the voice model of the caller and, if the matching pre-obtained voice model is found, then the speaker recognition means identifying at least one pre-obtained set of characters attributed to a potential caller from among the plurality of potential callers associated with the matching pre-obtained voice model;
  • character spotting means, responsive to the telephone message, for identifying sets of characters in the telephone message; and
  • comparator means for comparing characters of the at least one pre-obtained set of characters identified by the speaker recognition means against characters of a set of characters identified by the character spotting means and, if the characters match, then outputting the characters of the at least one pre-obtained set of characters as representing the set of characters left by the caller as part of the telephone message.
