How can I change the way I refer to someone?

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on October 10, 2007

If someone has a long or difficult name to pronounce and you call them regularly, you may want to have Vocera recognize them by a shorter name; or in a more familiar nick name. Here’s how you do this:

Press Call Button

Say “Learn a Name”

The Genie will say “Spell the first or last name of the person you want me to learn” (Remember, you’re having a hard time getting the Genie to understand you so you’ll need to spell the name and not say it.)

Repeat your version of the name after each beep.

This new name works for you alone. It does not change how the other person is listed in the general user database, so others will not be able to reach them by that name unless they follow the same procedure. Since the “Learned name” is an addition reference to the individual, you can still use the original version of their name.
