LONDON -- SpinVox, the leading provider of voice-to-content messaging, today announced an agreement with Optus to launch the SpinVox VoiceMail To Text™ service with the carrier in 2009. SpinVox quickly converts incoming voicemails to text messages and delivers them as an SMS to the subscriber’s mobile, allowing the user to discretely view the content of the voicemail without having to dial-in and listen to the message.

It is also particularly useful as customers receive the message as an SMS text, meaning they no longer need to write down important information or phone numbers, names and addresses. Once read, the text message can be saved and forwarded. The caller’s number is also included to make it simple to reply with a voice call or text message using click to call or SMS functionality.

Optus is the second Australian carrier to launch a SpinVox-powered voicemail to text service. Telstra launched its Voice2Text service to its business users in November 2007, followed by rollout to its consumer base in February 2009.

“SpinVox voicemail to text gives Optus customers the opportunity to enjoy a real visible voicemail experience,” said Christina Domecq, co-founder and CEO of SpinVox.

“Australians are already embracing SpinVox and this deal adds to the millions of SpinVox users on five continents who are already enjoying the power of reading their voice messages,” adds Domecq. “Automatic conversion of voice to text is a truly exciting category of voice services which is spreading across the globe at an impressive rate and is now the fastest growing network service since SMS.”
