"run on time", "Minium message length"


Explanation:
"Nachlaufzeit is the length of time the machine needs to finish one operation and start the next, The "Mindestgesprächsdauer" is the minimum length of time you can speak, ie. in this context probably the shortest message you can record (if you speak for less than this length of time then the rest of the minimum time is pobably taken up with the "Nachlaufzeit")
