On the other hand, when the answering machine reproduction is instructed, the answering machine reproduction processing as described in detail later is executed (step S110), and the above-mentioned step S110 is executed.
Return to 100.

The answering machine process executed in step S108 is performed as shown in FIG.

That is, first, a message indicating that the answering machine is the answering machine is output as voice to the called party by the communication device 114 (step S120), and the voice of the called party is recorded by the recording device 106 (step S121). Then, after the end of the call (step S122), it is determined whether or not there is an answering machine voice (step S123).

The presence or absence of the answering machine voice is determined by analyzing the recorded voice data and checking from the frequency of the voice whether or not the following items are applicable.・ Is it immediately disconnected after recording starts? -Whether silence is long.・ Whether the two-to-two sound after cutting is heard early.

When it is determined that there is no answering voice, the answering process is terminated.

On the other hand, if there is an answering voice, the transmission control unit 112 notifies the PC of the start of the transfer (step S124), and then transfers the recorded voice to the PC (step S125). ), The answering process is terminated.

Upon receiving the transfer start notification in step S124 in such answering machine processing, the PC starts the processing as shown in FIG.

That is, first, a destination for which the destination setting flag is set in the destination setting data memory 20A of the RAM 20 is determined (step S30), and the destination receiving format of the destination for which the flag is set is determined. Something is determined (step S31).

Here, if the receiving format of the transfer destination for which the transfer destination setting flag is set is only voice, the recorded voice transferred in step S125 in the answering machine processing of the telephone is converted to WAV, MP3, or AU. The audio data is converted into audio data in a general-purpose audio data format and stored in the audio data area 20B of the RAM 20 (step S32). Then, an e-mail set in advance as a template is automatically generated, and the sound data stored in the sound data area 20B is attached to the e-mail (step S3).
3). Thereafter, the transmission control unit 22 transmits the created e-mail to all the e-mail addresses of the transfer destinations for which the transfer destination setting flag is set (step S34). Then, the transmitted e-mail is stored in the RAM
20 is stored in the outgoing mail data area 20D (step S35), and this process ends.

On the other hand, if the reception format of the transfer destination for which the transfer destination setting flag is set is only text, the recorded voice transferred in step S125 in the answering process of the telephone is recognized by voice recognition and converted to text data. And save it in the text data area 20C of the RAM 20 (step S36). Then, an e-mail set in advance as a template is automatically generated, and the text data stored in the text data area 20C is attached to the e-mail (step S37). Then, the process proceeds to step S34, where the transmission control unit 22 transmits the created e-mail to all the e-mail addresses of the transfer destinations for which the transfer destination setting flag is set. Then, the transmitted e-mail is stored in the transmitted mail data area 20D of the RAM 20 (step S3).
5), this process ends.

If the transfer destination setting flag is set to both the voice receiving destination and the text receiving destination, the above-mentioned step S125 in the telephone answering process is performed. Is converted into voice data and stored in the voice data area 20B of the RAM 20, and the voice is recognized and converted into text data and stored in the text data area 20C of the RAM 20 (step S38). Then, two e-mails previously set as templates are automatically generated, and one of the voice data stored in the voice data area 20B and the text data area 20B are stored in the other.
Attach the saved text data to C (step S3
9). Thereafter, the transmission control unit 22 transmits e-mails corresponding to the respective destination receiving formats to all destination e-mail addresses for which the destination setting flag is set (step S40). Then, the above step S
Proceeding to 35, the transmitted e-mail is stored in the transmitted mail data area 20D of the RAM 20, and this processing ends.

The answering machine reproduction process executed in step S110 is performed as shown in FIG.

That is, first, the unreproduced portion of the sound recorded in the recording device 106 is determined (step S).
130). Then, audio reproduction is performed from the head of the unreproduced part (step S131). At the same time, the reproduced sound is transferred to the PC by the transmission control unit 112 (step S
132). When the reproduction of one voice is completed (step S133), it is determined whether or not an instruction operation to proceed to the next answering machine reproduction has been performed by the input device 102 (step S134). Here, when an instruction operation for proceeding to the next answering machine reproduction is performed, it is further determined whether or not the next answering machine sound is present in the recording device 106 (step S13).
5) If there is, the process returns to step S131.

On the other hand, if there is no next answering voice, the played-back code is added to the last answering voice (step S136), and the answering voice reproducing process is terminated.

If it is determined in step S134 that an instruction operation to proceed to the next answering machine reproduction has not been performed, it is further determined whether or not a predetermined release operation has been performed by the input device 102 (step S13).
7). Here, if the release operation has not been performed, the process proceeds to step S134, and if the release operation has been performed, the answering machine reproduction process ends.

Then, in response to the transfer of the reproduced sound to the PC in step S132, the PC executes a transfer data reproducing process as shown in FIG.

That is, the voice from the telephone received by the transmission control unit 22 is converted into voice data and text data.
The data is stored in the voice data area 20B and the text data area 20C of the RAM 20 (step S50).

When the reception of one voice is completed, the transmission mail data area 20D of the RAM 20 is stored in the transmission mail data area 20D.
It is determined whether there is the same data as the voice data or text data stored in the voice data area 20B and the text data area 20C (step S51).

Here, if the same data does not exist (step S52), a message indicating that there is no outgoing mail is displayed on the display device 14 (step S53), and the transfer data reproducing process ends.

On the other hand, if there is the same data (step S52), if it is voice data (step S54), the voice data is reproduced and output, and the transmitted mail is displayed on the display device 14. (Step S55),
This transfer data reproduction process ends.

If the same data is text data (step S54), the transmitted mail is displayed on the display device 14 (step S56), and the transfer data reproducing process is terminated.

As described above, when a call is received by telephone and the telephone is in the answering machine state, the incoming call voice is converted into transfer data, and a mail attached with the transfer data is automatically created and set in advance. Forward e-mail to the specified e-mail address. Therefore, it is not necessary to confirm whether the message has been recorded by telephone or not, and the contents of the recorded message can be easily and accurately confirmed.

It should be noted that the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and it is needless to say that various modifications can be made.

For example, it is assumed that the answering machine voice is temporarily recorded by the recording device 106 and the recorded voice is converted into voice data and / or text data. And / or may be converted to text data. Needless to say, it is not always necessary to record.

Also, by using an incoming call notification service such as a number display, a database associated with personal information such as a name and a mail address is referred to. May be converted to a character string to automatically create a transmission mail text. Further, in the case of transmitting and receiving a moving image such as a videophone, the moving image may be attached to the electronic mail together with the sound.

In the above embodiment, the data format for converting the audio data is not specified, but information on the data format to be converted may be registered in advance.

Further, regarding the transfer timing of the mail, the time is not particularly defined in the above embodiment, but the condition set by the user in advance (the transfer immediately after the recording,
It is also possible to make it possible to transfer the mail on the basis of, for example, transfer at XX hours and XX minutes.
