NAME
       audial  -  generate  or	recognize touch	tones for North	American tele-
       phones

SYNOPSIS
       audial [-audio  servername]  [-volume  0-100]  [-spacing	 milliseconds]
       [-pause milliseconds] [-duration	milliseconds] dialstring

       audial -recognize [-microphone] [-gain 0-100] [-time seconds]

DESCRIPTION
       The  audial  program generates touch tones suitable for dialing a North
       American	telephone.  audial can also recognize touch tones and  produce
       the corresponding string.

GENERAL	OPTIONS
       The following options may be used in either dial	or recognition mode:

       -audio servername
	       This  option specifies the Network Audio	System server on which
	       the files should	be played.

DIAL OPTIONS
       The following options may be used in dial mode:

       -volume 0-100
	       This option specifies the volume	at which the  data  should  be
	       played as a percentage of the maximum possible volume.  The de-
	       fault is	100 percent.

       -spacing	milliseconds
	       This option specifies the number	of milliseconds	to wait	in be-
	       tween each digit.  The default is 100.

       -pause milliseconds
	       This  option specifies the number of milliseconds to wait when-
	       ever a comma (,)	is used	in a dial string.  The default is 400.

       -duration milliseconds
	       This option specifies the duration of each  tone	 in  millisec-
	       onds.  The default is 100.

DIALING	STRING
       The following characters	may be used in a dialing string:

       0123456789*#
	       The corresponding touch tone is generated.

       abcd    Tones  representing the 4 "function" keys often found on	a key-
	       pad are generated.

       ,       A blank tone whose length is specified by the -pause option  is
	       generated.

       Any other characters are	ignored.

RECOGNITION OPTIONS
       -recognize
	       Enables	recognition  mode.   audial  will attempt to recognize
	       touch tones from	the input device and output the	 corresponding
	       character.

       -microphone
	       Use microphone gain levels on the audio input device.  If a mi-
	       crophone	is plugged into	the  audio  input  jack,  this	option
	       should be used.

       -gain 0-100
	       This option specifies the input gain level.  The	default	is 95.

       -time seconds
	       This option specifies how long to attempt the recognition.  The
	       default is forever.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The following environment variables are used by audial:

       AUDIOSERVER
	       This specifies the name of default audio	server to  contact  if
	       no name is explicitly given on the command line.

       DISPLAY This  specifies	the  name  of  an X Window System display that
	       should be assumed to also have a	 corresponding	Network	 Audio
	       System server.
