UW-Madison Directory Assistance is an automated directory, department and events lookup system. The system uses a conversational style search that can handle accents, nicknames, and names that sound similar or may be spelled in different ways. You can also speak to a Campus and Visitor Relations agent available from 7:30 am until 10 pm. The system no longer has the 24-hour automated system.If you find that the name of the person or department you are looking for is mispronounced or for some reason can't be located in the directory:
- Change the pronunciation of your name: go to http://www.nuance.com/autoattendant/rerecord and follow the instructions.
- Change the name of your department: send an email to email@example.com with your name; your campus telephone number; your department name; the information as it is given now and how you would like it to be given.
