Speech to Text

Speech to Text Messaging Services are available through a number of cell phone service providers. The feature is relatively inexpensive and provides an additional means for someone with a hearing impairment or deafness to receive accurate information without bulky equipment. In addition, this service may be useful for any individual working in a fast-paced, busy, and potentially noisy environment.

The service transcribes spoken voicemails into text messages sent to the phone of the recipient. The incoming caller does not have to have any special accomodations on his/her plan/phone, but instead receives the typical prompt to leave a message.

Individual cell phone service providers (ie: Alltel, Verizon, Cingular, etc.) may provide this service through their standard plans.
