Robocall back with a Robocall
Since most people have phones with messaging machines or automated services to record messages, how about creating something that filters out those automated calls with an automated message requiring audio feedback.
IE: Robocall comes in and the messaging system doesn't recognize the number from a list of favorites or recently accepted callers. It picks up on the 1st ring to play this message to the caller, "The person you are trying to reach requires confirmation of your identity by a verbal speech pattern. Please say 'One Two Three' and stay on the line while while we analyze your voice pattern."
Speech recognition software would then analyze the response and allow or disallow the connection. The message could reflect any word or words for the user to select to say in the recording. Without any pauses or responses from the Robocaller after X seconds, the call would be ended immediately and the number blocked.
Many institutions use voice recognition as a means of routing calls or inputing customer information. Is there any difference in using it to fight against unsolicited Robocalls?
Don't spend the money all in one place.
