Read your voicemail

March 6, 2007

SimulScribe logoDownload Squad recently wrote about SimulScribe, a new web service that can transcribe your voice mail into readable text. There’s a monthly fee of $9.95 for the first 40 messages, and 25 cents per message after that. A nice service if you would rather have everything come to you as emails or have difficulty checking your voicemail on a regular basis. This service uses “cutting-edge voice recognition” technology instead of live agents, so I wonder how accurate these transcriptions are. Nonetheless, there are times when I would much rather have a computer transcribe my voice mail — no need for a live person to type all the kissy sounds in messages (from my partner only, I swear), or the “I love you, but you never call, you never write” guilt-laden messages from my mom (but I do write all the time, Mom!).
