    The interface between a machine, which provides a variety of services, and the user (the one served) is described. These experimental telecommunications services include enhanced calling, personal assistance, and electronic messaging. They are felt to be mutually consistent and are perceived at a user's instrument, called a teleterminal. A tree-like structure for the access of services, which is c... View full abstract»

    Users of teleterminals need access trees which are personalized menus. It is helpful to use an editor that modifies existing access trees and creates new access trees by translating buttonpushing input into screen and action output. Users need only be familiar with the operation of function selection menus to construct new or change existing access trees. This paper discusses such a tree editor an... View full abstract»

    The capability for creating a service and the willingness of customers to pay for that service are not always related. Videotex is now in the transition from being driven by technology to being driven by the marketplace. As a new medium of communications, it will not create information, but it may add value to existing information by providing speed, selection, and interactivity. The degree to whi...

    In the fall of 1976, a series of experiments to explore the uses of a telephone with both voice and data capability was started. This paper describes the evolution, through five different models, ending with an integrated combination of a six button keyset with speakerphone, a full ASCII keyboard, and a 24 line by 80 character CRT display. There are 25 relabelable buttons around the display. Reaso... View full abstract»

    The decreasing cost and increasing capability of computer graphics offers the opportunity to consider a new dynamic, or time-varying, iconic form of written language. Conventional ideographic writing forms, being static, require a very large number of symbols and are hard to learn. The new technology addresses both of these problem areas. Western culture Oriented iconic writing languages already e... View full abstract»

    An experimental access method has been designed to provide a "friendly" interface between a variety of telecommunications services and the user (the one served). The access software and an experimental teleterminal combine the concepts of selection from a menu, traversing a tree, and the relabeling of buttons. The casual observation over many initial users has produced a valuable, if not biased, e... View full abstract»

    Users without prior computer experience employed a menu-and-tree interface to search a database relevant to telecommunications services. Detailed data were recorded on the latency of each response and whether an error was made. The depth, level, vertical position, number of options, and trial were found to significantly affect response latency. The level, content, and side of the screen on which t... View full abstract»
