SpinVox converts Voicemail to Text

Texting phone

If you’re like me, your voicemail feature on your cell phone takes forever, and is usually very useless. Personally, I think it would be better if my voicemails were converted into text.

Fortunately, SpinVox now has a feature that allows just that. SpinVox’s big man, Marc Salztman, claims that his SpinVox will allow you to “do more”. Quite frankly, I believe him.

After all, how many times have you got a Voicemail that included a telephone number or email that you had to write down. And then you don’t have a pen or paper at the moment, and you have to listen to the voicemail again? It would be much better if the number was on the screen, ready to be used.

That goes for any important message you can receive. Personally, I like it better in text than in a voice that I have to remember later.

As a bonus feature, the caller’s number will appear on the text message. All you need to do is click one button and that’s that.

The only question I have is how the voicemail gets converted to text. Does someone actually sit in front of a computer and transcribe it? If so, then some total stranger might be hearing my voicemails. Better not send me anything explicit. Oh, what am I worried about? I’m sure a computer handles it all, maybe.

Anyway, SpinVox is available for $15 per month, and that might be enough to make it worth it.
