Definition of directory assistance in English:
A telephone service used to find out someone’s telephone number.

- In practice, that will mean dialing operator service numbers such as directory enquiries and voicemail facilities is the same, wherever you are and whatever language you speak.
- Context-specific, speaker-independent software is in common use today for 1-800 telephone directory assistance, flight reservations, and other uses.
