Tired of hearing co-workers and friends alike stammer through your BlackBerry’s automated messaging system? And let’s not even touch the folks who leave more than one voicemail – ridiculous. BUT! Thankfully now, with a new piece of software stemming out of Encinitas, California – your voicemail’s can now become text on your device.
FreedomVOICE Systems have launched “TextTalk”, a service that, well, does exactly what I just told you. The software will essentially transcribe your voicemail and toss you an email as it’s not always appropriate to be checking your VM’s.
â€œFreedomVOICE Systems is the first virtual office service provider to offer an integrated voice to text solution,â€ said FreedomVOICE Systems Founder and CEO Eric Thomas. â€œTalkText is ideal for mobile professionals who can view their phone messages on their Blackberry, laptop or cell phone.
Weâ€™ve all been in meetings, on a conference call or attending other functions where listening to voicemail would be frowned upon. Now you can read your voicemail messages and take a course of action. It makes their time much more productive.â€
FreedomVOICE Systemsâ€™ research suggests some professionals spend many hours every week listening to voicemail.
â€œAttorneys, salesmen and many others receive a large volume of messages which they then must listen to and sort through,â€ said Thomas. â€œWith TalkText, they can scan the content of their messages and even use text searching tools like Google.
Whether they are in a meeting, traveling or on the golf course, they can instantly see who called and what was said. And, they won’t have to listen to all of their messages to find out about an important missed call.â€
