Subject: Re: Zero or "o"?
In case anyone is interested, the Regional Bell Operating Companies is "oh"
as standard. When the DA operator gets the number from his/her computer, s/he
is already answering another call when we're listening to the digitized play-
back of the number. The always record the zero as "oh", unless the number ends
in two zeros in which some RBOCs will say "hundred" as in 7200 - "seventy-teo
hundred." In other words, for the TELCOs, the default is "oh."
