New Phone Code Invention Allows
Text Messaging and Alphanumeric Paging
from any Phone in the world
An inventor, James Burrell, has spent the past thirty years
developing a way of using any standard twelve key telephone keypad as a computer terminal keyboard.
The speed and efficiency of the Phone Code invention is faster and easier than all previous data
entry methods using any phone or any twelve sensor keypad.
All data entered on any standard computer keyboard can be entered using any twelve key phone keypad in the world.
A demonstration of the working invention can found on the deafandblind.com/phone/demo.htm page.
The new Phone Code invention uses any phone in the same standard way.
Pressing the desired number keys still produces the numbers "1" through "9" and a "0".
Pressing the left asterisk "*" key once exits the standard number mode and enters a two key alphabet mode.
Letters are produced in the alphabet mode by pressing the lettered number key ("1" through "9")
with the desired letter, followed by one of three position keys: the left asterisk "*" key for the left letter,
the middle zero "0" key for the middle letter or the right pound "#" key for the right letter.
The "2" key has the letters "A", "B" and "C" located on it.
The left "A" is produced by pressing the "2" key followed by the left asterisk "*" key.
The middle "B" is produced by pressing the "2" key followed by the middle zero "0" key.
The right "C" is produced by pressing the "2" key followed by the right pound "#" key.
The phone code uses the "Q", "space" and "Z" located on the "1" key or the "Q - Z".
The space can be produced by pressing the "1" key by itself or the middle zero "0" key twice while in the alphabet mode.
Pressing the right pound "#" key exits the alphabet mode and re-enters the number
mode while in an UPPER-CASE mode (deafandblind.com/911code.html).
All QWERTY keyboard data, including Spanish and French, can be entered sequentially
or simultaneously through any twelve key phone keypad in the world using the Phone Code
invention. Without the use of predictive text, the Phone Code invention is faster and easier to use than AOL Mobile's Tegic T9,
AOL Mobile's Tegic T9 predictive text mode, any other text entry method or predictive text data entry method.
With the introduction of Tegic T9 in Motorola's StarTac cell phone, Mr.
Burrell made numerous attempts to have Motorola use his Phone Code invention technology on Motorola's StarTac or any of their products.
Mr. Burrell also approached Tegic to have Tegic's T9 input method modified to also
include his Phone Code invention as a part of T9's operating platform. Tegic,
Motorola and any other company Mr. Burrell approached repeatedly refused to use
or license the Phone Code invention in any of their products, even though the
Phone Code invention is faster and easier, and also allows the deaf, blind, deaf-blind, visually impaired
and speech impaired to easily use texting technology on any phone or the SMS text messaging technology.
The data entry rate using sequential key actuations is around two key presses for
data characters, without the use of any type of predictive text.
The data entry rate using sequential key actuations
in a middle mode is around "1.6" key presses for data characters, without the use of any type of predictive text.
The data entry rate using sequential key actuations
in a most used letter mode is around "1.35" key presses for data characters, without the use of any type of predictive text.
Simultaneous key actuations lower the data entry rate to almost one "1" key press for each
data character without the use of any type of predictive text.
Combining the Phone Code invention with any predictive text program will increase the efficiency of the invention
by decreasing the key presses required for data characters.
All statistics on the efficiency and data entry rates can be found on the deafandblind.com/statistics.htm page.
The Phone Code invention allows the Deaf, Blind, Deaf-Blind, Speech Impaired and
Visually Impaired to finally enter data or text message on any phone or cell phone.
The Phone Code invention makes all phones and cell phones compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act allowing the Deaf,
Speech Impaired and Deaf-Blind the ability to use 911 or enhanced 911 (E911) without the use of a
TTY (Teletypewriter) or TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf).
Mr. Burrell has been working for years to have his Phone Code invention program
installed on all of the emergency 911 switches and E911 systems used in the United States.
The asterisk key is presently not used on 911 switches and only requires programming the unused asterisk key
with the Phone Code program and then converting the DTMF entered ASCII code data into the antiquated Baudot code
(ITA2-International Telegraph Alphabet #2 or U.S. TTY) for transmission to the P.S.A.P. (Public Service Access Point).
At the present time, the phone code is not an A.D.A. (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirement,
but Mr. Burrell has been working for years trying to get legislation introduced and passed.
After filing his first patent on the phone, Mr. Burrell lobbied every Congressman and then every
Senator to implement his Phone Code invention on the 911 switches.
After offering the Phone Code invention to our politicians for free to use on the 911
switches, not one of our politicians or their aids contacted Mr. Burrell or were interested in helping the handicapped community.
Mr. Burrell has been working for years to have his Phone Code invention adopted and used by the telecommunications
industry, TTYs and TDDs, any and all phone devices, PDAs, paging systems, SMS systems, computer systems,
analog and digital touch screen interfaces and cellular systems.
The new Phone Code invention allows anyone to dial a website address from any
phone in the world for telephonic Automated Attendant Internet Access using any text or html reader to receive audio information.
The Phone Code invention allows anyone to dial a web-cam video site address from any video phone
to view internet cameras for traffic updates or visual confirmation.
The Phone Code also allows anyone to dial an Email address from any phone in the world to leave a text or voice
message or receive Email through audio text or html readers.
Using combinations of 8 sensors (chording) allows typing without repositioning of the fingers and is the fastest way of typing.
Mr. Burrell has also invented a way of using combinations of 8 sensors
to type which is shown on the deafandblind.com/type/demo.htm page.
All QWERTY keyboard data and every Latin based alphabet language can be entered using any 8 sensors with the chordic 8 key data entry method.
The chordic 8 key data entry method allows ergonomic positioning of the hands, wrists and arms to prevent the development of
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cumulative Trauma Disorders, Repetitive Motion Syndrome, Repetitive Strain Disorders and Repetitive Stress Injuries.
The chordic 8 key data entry method can also be used as an alternative 8 dot braille
arrangement which is found on the deafandblind.com/braille.htm page or a method of finger braille communication
for the deaf-blind which is found on the deafandblind.com/fingerbraille/demo.htm page.
The use of a digital matrix touch screen will allow any device to produce data using Mr. Burrell's 8 sensor data entry method.
Multiple types of data entry modes for increased speed and ease of use are also possible and included.
It is obvious that the industry has conspired to block Mr. Burrell's Phone Code invention from being used by the world
even though Mr. Burrell's Phone Code invention is faster, easier and allows the deaf, blind, deaf-blind, visually impaired,
speech impaired and disabled community to easily use texting technology on any phone device or the SMS text messaging technology.
These actions by the industry constitute an antitrust violation.
