SFU Speech Directory

July 13, 2012

SFU now has a voice-activated phone directory service.

Simply dial ASKME (27563) from any phone on campus, clearly speak the name of the person or department you wish to contact, and ASKME will automatically route your call. For individuals off campus, dial 778.782.7563 to connect.

Given our global community, the directory has been programmed to interpret cultural accents and to recognize name variations. For example, it will identify William Smith and Bill Smith as the same individual.

So if you forget a phone number, you can just dial ASKME (27563) and tell the voice recognition system the name of the person or department, and you'll get connected.
