SKYPE UPDATE : Voice-Mail-To-Text Now Available For Skype Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • SimulScribe, which uses its proprietary voice-recognition algorithms that transcribe voice mail to text, is now offering Skype users a chance to have their voice mail messages delivered to their e-mail and SMS addresses. The service works with wireless, networked, and voice-over-IP services. So why exactly would someone want this? According to SimulScribe, a user can save up to three hours a month reading instead of listening to messages. The service can also be useful if you are in a situation where you cannot answer the phone (business meeting, religious building etc.) and you can choose not to answer it knowing that it will be transcribed and you can read it later.
