FreedomVOICE Systems is the first virtual office service provider to offer an integrated voice to text solution
Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
A new voice to text solution that enables you to “read your voicemail,” has been launched by FreedomVOICE Systems, a leading provider of a wide array of integrated virtual office tools.
TalkText is a voice to text service that uses advanced voice recognition technology to convert voicemail messages to e-mail. Powered by SimulScribe™, TalkText allows you to read your voicemail messages in locations where listening to telephone messages would be inappropriate.
“FreedomVOICE Systems is the first virtual office service provider to offer an integrated voice to text solution,” said FreedomVOICE Systems Founder and CEO Eric Thomas. “TalkText is ideal for mobile professionals who can view their phone messages on their Blackberry, laptop or cell phone. We’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.”
FreedomVOICE Systems officials said they selected New York City-based SimulScribe because of its unique capabilities and cutting edge technology. TalkText employs high-level voice recognition software and advanced proprietary algorithms, developed by SimulScribe, to convert voice messages to email. According to company officials, the average turn-around time is about two to five minutes, depending on the length of the message.
FreedomVOICE Systems’ research suggests some professionals spend many hours every week listening to voicemail.
“Attorneys, salesmen and many others receive a large volume of messages which they then must listen to and sort through,” said Thomas. “With 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.”
Company officials said TalkText in a natural add-on to FreedomVOICE Systems’ virtual office tools which already deliver fax, voice and email to the user’s designated Internet location.
“Now, they’ll enjoy the added benefit of being able to read voicemail as text. It’s automated, secure and time-freeing,” said Thomas.
SimulScribe converts voicemail to text and delivers it via email, SMS text messages and web interface. Voicemail transcribed through SimulScribe’s patented technology is delivered in near real-time with the caller’s phone number in the subject line, transcribed voice message in the email body and an attached .wav file of the original audio. SimulScribe provides unlimited voicemail box storage and the voice recognition system has a transcription accuracy of over 90 percent. The Company’s website is SimulScribe.com.
