Question Voicemail changed to textmessage/email??

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone found a service to do this? Im in the process of trying to find something like this. Something to where I could read my voicemail as an email or even better a text message? I contacted my cell phone carrier and they dont offer anything like this. This would be so convenient and save lots of time out of my day. Any help would be appreciated...

exactly what these guys SpinVox - converting voicemail to mobile phone texts - free trial do..

Not sure whether they've got presence in the usa however, but try mailining them. I'm assume you are USA based with your use of "cell phone carrier"

Yes I am based in the U.S.. I took a look at the spinvox website and their products look very innovative. Do you or have you used them? I honestly cant believe that more people arent demanding a service like this. Thanks for the info.

I use Similscribe (similscribe.com). I am very happy with them and I love have this ability! I can read my voicemails when I am in a meeting, etc., plus I have a written record.

Question

After searching around about spinvox I came across their "speak a blog" trial website. The conversion from voice to the text was great, no mistakes. Im curious though as to how people who use this everyday like it? Here is the link I found.... simoncrowfoot.livejournal.com

i also use simulscribe and like the product and convenience of not having to check voicemail for messages...also like the ability to send the wav file to someone else to listen too...

I use Spinvox and love the service! I dont know how much you have looked around their website, but they have a huge range of products. They also have a worldwide presence with multilingual conversion of voicemail to text. Which is very helpful if you are an international traveler.

Default voice to text

Hi, i'm from Canada. There is no real solution here in Canada for voice to text. Alot of the websites i see here on the forum is usa based or other (UK). One of the guys on the forum said there were ways to go around such as phonewire, ip-relay, etc etc.... but alot of them cost money AND must be certain phone carriers. Plus a few of them requires credit cards to activiate the accounts.

Im on Rogers plan and while they are good, they dont meet up to my expectations.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
