Dial2Do, a technology platform provider enabling voice-activated hands-free communications, including email and text messaging, has been chosen by Bluetooth speakerphone manufacturer SuperTooth to power a new service called SuperTooth HandsFree Assistant that will enable users of the new SuperTooth HD speakerphone to have two-way, voice-activated, hands-free messaging.

As part of the white-label arrangement, SuperTooth HandsFree Assistant users can use their voices to create and send SMS, email, and Twitter and Facebook posts and also have incoming SMS and email read aloud on Android and BlackBerry phones via the specific free application.

“Dial2Do can voice activate any service and add significant value to a new or existing Bluetooth accessory by giving users the option to do more with their voices,” said Ivan MacDonald, CEO of Dial2Do. “SuperTooth is the latest company to leverage the Dial2Do voice services platform and, as a result, users of their new SuperTooth HD can be more productive and efficient when communication needs arise in a hands-free situation.”

New SuperTooth HD users receive six months of the SuperTooth HandsFree Assistant service. During this period, the user can upgrade to the SuperTooth HandsFree Asistant Pro service for one year, which includes a range of additional features, such as the ability to listen to local news, sports, and weather. At the end of the six months, users can still upgrade to the Pro service or they can subscribe to continue using SuperTooth HandsFree Assistant Basic.

“Recognizing the growing importance of voice services, we sought to integrate a partner that would ensure that users of the new SuperTooth HD could stay connected entirely with their voice,” said Michel Marchant, chairman of SuperTooth. “The Dial2Do voice services platform does that and significantly enhances the value of the new speakerphone. We encourage all new SuperTooth HD users to take advantage of SuperTooth HandsFree Assistant and put it to the test.”
