The Universal Station: for Transcription and Dictation
The Universal Station is capable of generating the fourth column tones (A, B, C, and D) that some dictation and transcription systems use in addition to the 12 tones found on a normal telephone keypad. However, since the A, B, C, and D keys on the Universal Station's keypad are used for accessing speed dial and other special functions of the station, the tones cannot be accessed directly. This document describes how to use fourth column tones by programming them into speed dial memory locations.
Before reading this, please review Hint #6 - Using Speed Dial with the Universal Station for information about programming the Universal Station speed dial function.
To program an A or a B into a speed dial memory location, all
you need to do is insert an A or a B. To program a C or a D
into a speed dial memory location, you need to enter CC for C and
CD for D. This is because C is an "escape code" and a C must be
combined with a second character to do anything. (Another example: C1
is used to create a one-second delay when programmed into a speed dial number.)
By itself, D can't be used to produce the D tone because it is
interpreted by the station as a code to stop dialing.
To program 1A2B into speed dial memory location A1, use the four step procedure as follows:
To program 123C into memory location A1:
To program 123D into memory location A1:
To program 123ABCD into memory location A1:
Note that since there are more than seven characters in this programmed
number, two memory locations will be taken up, in this case A1 and A2. The
capacity of the memory locations is discussed in Hint #6 - Using Speed Dial with the Universal
Accessing Fourth-Column Tones from the Keypad:
If you need to be able to enter the individual tones for A, B, C, and D from
the keypad, you could program the A1-A4 memory locations of the station as
By doing this, you can simply enter A1 when you want the tone for A, A2 for B, A3 for C, and A4 for D.
You can program these values by using the same four step procedure as noted
above for each memory location, using the following table for reference:
