(music)

voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm pat bodnar.

voice two:

and i'm steve ember. millions of americans are now paid to spend at least some of their work hours working from home. computers, telephones and fax machines keep them connected to their offices.

voice one:

today we examine the popularity – and problems – of telecommuting.

(music)

voice two:

some americans start their workday fifteen minutes after they wake up. some even stay in their nightclothes.

these people are among a growing number who work from home at least one day a month. some even do this every day. this way of working is called telecommuting or teleworking.

telecommuters do not always work from home. they might go to an office, but still it is away from their main place of employment.

the idea of telecommuting by computer goes back more than thirty years. for awhile, it did not gain as much popularity as its supporters had expected.

voice one:

then came the nineteen nineties, and the rise of the personal computer and the internet. today, telecommuting is gaining much wider acceptance.
