Movistar deploys SpinVox’s voice-to-text service

2 Oct 2008

Movistar Chile and SpinVox have announced the launch of the first voice-to-text service in Latin America, with the service now available to the cellco’s post-paid subscriber base. SpinVox converts voice messages into text and delivers them directly to the recipient as an SMS on their mobile phone. Subscribers not only see the full message content, but also the caller ID, so they can see at a glance who left the message, and then call or text straight back. The service is available either as a monthly bundle of 10 or 20 voicemails or on a message-by-message service.
