CallWave Introduces Vtxt
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. & ORLANDO, Fla. - CallWave released Vtxt, a service that transforms mobile voicemail into readable, searchable, and storable content. Incorporating CallWave's proprietary speech recognition and WEB 2.0 visual voicemail technology, the Vtxt service allows subscribers to read their voicemail on their handset, manage, and reply to voice and text messages from a personal Web page, and search a permanent archive of voice and text messages. The service is free during the beta trial. It will be available nationwide in calendar year second quarter of 2007. All services will be available for private-label to carrier partners.
The CallWave Vtxt service is built upon voicemail-optimized speech recognition technology and a managed services architecture.
Rather than receiving multiple SMS messages of a completely transcribed call, subscribers can review the essence of a voice message on their handset and determine if a callback or text reply is necessary. Users will be able to hear the full message by accessing their voicemail on the handset, in email and on their personal Web archive, depending on their service level.
CallWave's GIST technology delivers General Information on the Subject and Timing of a missed call, sent to the handset via an SMS. It combines caller ID, name, city and state, and information on the subject and timing of the call. This enables the subscriber to determine if they need to reply via callback or SMS from the handset. The full content can be accessed via the handset or the desktop.
For mobile users who require a full, word-for-word translation of voicemail delivered via multiple SMS messages to the handset or the desktop, the CallWave platform will integrate with live operator transcription vendors.
The CallWave Vtxt service supports voicemail review, desktop texting, and callback from a personal Web page.
