June 21, 2007

Callwave, one of the original Internet voicemail systems, will be offering the official version of its vTXT voice-to-text service on Monday, ending the beta testing phase[it’s still beta]. The service is two-fold, offering SMS summaries of voicemail messages as well as a full email message. There are no “live operators” involved, thus ensuring privacy. I gave it a whirl this morning and the service performed, ummm… acceptably?”

An Easy Way To Record Your Phone Conversations

June 13, 2007

“…can’t remember what you did 5 minutes ago…anyway, just find a reason because Logitec announces the LIC-TRA056SD, an audio MP3 voice recorder that can be plugged directly to your telephone and is equipped with 128MB of flash memory (worth 50hrs of blabla).”

Record Your Phone Conversations

May 26, 2007

Free Conference Call.com now has a free audio recording service. You can record any phone call while you make it. Both outgoing and incoming voices. (You must tell people you are recording them.) I’m using this on all my teleseminars now. I’m not sure if it’s digital or not, but I believe it is.

Audio Acrobat does the same thing, plus they have a transcription service that goes along with it for an extra (but reasonable) fee.
So these are backups. And they can easily become MP3s.”

Website: Bringo – No More Waiting To Talk To A Human

May 16, 2007

“Bringo is the cure for the common phone tree. Anybody who has called a credit card company or an airline, wanting to speak to an actual person knows it is not an easy task. I know that it can be very frustrating always getting sent to another automated operator, when all you want is to ask a question, or get an answer. Bringo saves you the hassle of waiting to get a human voice on the other end of the phone. You select the company you would like to call from a large list of companies on Bringo’s web page. After entering your phone number, Bringo will call you back with a person from the company on the phone for you to talk to.”

Verizon Voice Activated Call Routing

May 6, 2007

“Beyond personal use, thinking of company customer service inbound call handling, this could be a friendly way to handle tiered service levels (opposed to punching in some user ID or code). For example, in the airline industry, a voice recognition differentiator that identifies Platinum members could pass them to the agent that gets a call every 5 minutes instead of every 30 seconds.”
