OCP is a complete messaging solution for voice modems, with voicemail, fax, email pager, DTMF command shell.
You can send and receive faxes, listen to your email using text-to-speech, filter and redirect calls based on caller ID information, run programs through the telephone and more.
VOCP acts as a call answering and voice messaging system. When a call comes in on the line connected to the voice modem, VOCP answers and the caller is placed in the root box. From there, the caller may navigate the system tree by using the DTMF keys on the telephone.
Most boxes will play messages that present menus which lead to other boxes, which the caller selects by entering a single digit on the telephone keypad. Callers may jump to any box withing the system by entering *, followed by the box number and, optionally, followed by the # key.
The leaf nodes, or terminal points, in the system end the call - this is where the caller will leave a voice or pager message, send or receive a fax.
A user may also choose to log into the system, in order to retreive voicemail messages or to run programs using the command shells. This is accomplished by accessing the special box number 999 (by entering *999#).
Callers navigate the system using a touch-tone phone and may send and receive faxes, voice mail, and pager messages, listen to text/HTML email messages, or execute configured programs on the host and hear the resulting output.
