SpinVox automatically converts voicemail to text messages


Sorta reminds us of Samsung's plans for a cellphone with built-in speech-to-text conversion capabilities, but a company called SpinVox has introduced a new service which takes your voicemail and automatically converts whatever was said into an SMS text message (a company called DictoMail also offers something similar). Sounds way easier than having to frantically scrawl everything down when you're checking your messages, but we're the tiniest bit skeptical about the accuracy of their transcriptions. SpinVox is only available in Britain right now, and they offer a pay-as-you-go plan that charges 25p per message along with a couple of prepaid options that offer discounts and/or access to advanced features.
