Managing stored voice in the etherphone system

D. Terry, D. Swinehart
1987 Proceedings of the eleventh ACM Symposium on Operating systems principles - SOSP '87  
An important component of the Etherphone system, the voice manager, provides operations for recording, playing, editing, and otherwise manipulating digitized voice based on an abstraction that we call  ...  The Etherphone TM system was developed at Xerox PARC to explore methods of integrating voice into existing distributed personal computing environments.  ...  These facilities for managing stored voice in the Etherphone system were designed with the intent of moving voice data as little as possible.  ...

Scripted documents: a hypermedia path mechanism

P. T. Zellweger
1989 Proceedings of the second annual ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '89  
The concept of a path, or ordered traversal of some links in a hypertext, has been a part of the hypertext notion from its early formation.  ...  Finally, it describes the Scripted Documents system, which has been developed to test the potential of one powerful path mechanism.  ...  Other Etherphone project members, including Dan Swinehart, Doug Terry, and Stephen Ades, contributed to the voice substrate and helped hone the script concept.  ...

Integrating Internet telephony services

Wenyu Jiang, J. Lennox, S. Narayanan, H. Schulzrinne, K. Singh, Xiaotao Wu
2002 IEEE Internet Computing  
The problem with this model is that IP addresses are hard to remember and can easily change if the user changes locations or machines.  ...  SIP registrar servers maintain user locations, and the user's communication devices register with the registrar servers periodically by providing their current addresses.  ...  There is a fair amount of early voice-messaging work -in particular, Xerox PARC's Etherphone -but none of it addresses the integration of Internet telephony with voice-messaging systems.  ...
