Analog Display Services Interface (ADSI)

A Bellcore standard defining a protocol on the flow of information between a switch, a server, a voice mail system, or service bureau, for example, and a subscriber's telephone, PC, data terminal, or other communicating device with a screen. ADSI enables a text version of the conversation to be displayed on the screen during the telephone connection. As an example, the user dials into a voice mail account and receives an audio menu for the voice mail functions while the screen displays the menu in text form.
