Phone.com Launches Text VoiceMail
Phone.com, a provider of home and business phone service, announced today that fully automated voicemail message transcriptions are now available. In addition to listening to their voicemails, every Phone.com customer can now also view the transcribed text of their voicemail messages on their phones and in their email inboxes.
Messages are transcribed immediately upon receipt and are forwarded to the customer’s email as well as to their phones as an SMS text message. Unlike other services that provide human-assisted transcriptions, Phone.com’s transcriptions are 100 percent automated. The service uses software developed by Yap.
“Our customers tell us all the time how tedious it is to listen to long and detailed voicemail messages,” said Phone.com CEO Ari Rabban. “Our new transcription service makes it easy to check your voicemail, even in business meetings or loud settings where listening to messages is not practical. In fact, our new service is so quick and accurate you might never listen to a voicemail again.”
The Phone.com automated Text Voicemail service is available immediately to all Phone.com customers at a cost of $1.50 per month for unlimited transcriptions.
