I’m interested in a service that provides text conversion for voice mail messages. What company provides this service?
The name of the service some hard of hearing people use to automatically transcribe and send text messages to their cell phones and computers is SimulScribe (www.simulscribe.com).
As one person explained,
If I’m out of the house and away from my CapTel phone, I can access and understand my voice messages. Very easy and very simple—well worth the $10/month in my opinion. It’s very popular with the hearing world also and was highly recommended by the Wall Street Journal’s tech guru Walter Mossberg. It’s just another tool I use to cut down on the stress of phone use.
So there you have it. If you are interested in such a service, you might want to give SimulScribe a try.
