Dial by Name using first name instead of last

Nov 3, 2008 at 8:42 PM
Can anyone tell me how to program CB to use the first name in the Dial by Name function.  I have already updated the .snd files, but how do I get the program to search the first name field instead of the last name?

Without changing the code (which you can certainly do), simply replace the first and last names in the extension set-up.  That is the easiest way to accomplish what you want to do.  If you are a developer and interested in changing the spell by name code, post a reply and we can provide some pointers.

Mikey,

That is the quick fix that I implemented.  The only problem is when the system confirms the selection, the name is read back lastname firstname.  Is there another variable that I can use to read back the individual names?

Unfortunately not.  One thing many people would like to see is a recorded name for extension confirmation.  Text to speech works fine for common names but not so well with uncommon ones.  This would solve both problems.
