UK based telecoms messaging specialist MyJotter.com today announced the launch of its new voice-to-text solution. The service, available now to UK mobile users, enables callers to dictate voicemail messages which are then transcribed to text by a team of professional audio typists and sent to the destination of the caller’s choice – either via SMS or email – 24 hours per day.
“In a few moments MyJotter literally turns talk into text,” confirms David Cosserat, CEO, MyJotter. “This is invaluable if you need to write a note or draft a document, for example between meetings, while in an airport, or when driving.”
Callers use a dedicated MyJotter premium rate telephone number to relay anything from a short memo to a full sales call report. Transcribed text can then either be sent to a colleague or friend or back to the caller’s own email address for further editing later.
“One of the great benefits of the service is that is allows people to make use of down-time so cost effectively,” continues Cosserat. “It takes very little time to leave a voicemail and so a message that takes 10 seconds to dictate would cost just 17p — not to mention the time saved typing!”
Registration to the service is easy and free on www.myjotter.com. In addition, the website allows users to import colleagues’ and friends’ email and phone details so messages can be sent to a chosen recipient by simply stating the contact’s name and delivery method (SMS or email) at the start of the voicemail. By default, if recipient details are not supplied, the transcribed text will be emailed to the caller’s own email address.
In addition to the UK premium rate billing model MyJotter offers per-transcribed-word monthly billing to corporates based in the UK, US and Canada. MyJotter plans to introduce further, pre-paid account facilities later this year that will then be progressively rolled out to additional countries around the world.
“Although the concept of voice-to-text is not new,” concludes Cosserat, “we believe the take-up for mainstream use of such a service will be substantial. In a world when every second is becoming more precious, to be able take advantage of down-time in such an effective way is a particularly compelling proposition.”
