The possibility of utilizing symbolic representations of controlled chaotic orbits for digital communication is being considered. Analysis and numerical results which imply that practical coding schemes in communicating with chaos yield the utilization of chaotic saddles embedded in a chaotic attractor is presented. This has several advantages: (1) chaotic saddles can be noise resisting, (ii) the loss in the channel capacity is only incremental, and (iii) the specification of symbolic partition maybe significantly simplified (particularly for the high-dimensional systems.).
