What is Voice to Text?

One of YouMail’s features that is designed to help you improve your productivity and save you time, is our voicemail transcriptions. Voice to Text gives you the ability to read your voicemail messages so that you never have to listen to another voicemail again. Our voicemail transcription feature automatically transcribes all voicemails you receive and sends them to you as either a text or email. You can also access all of your voicemail transcriptions from the YouMail app or by visiting your YouMail account online.

The way Voice to Text works is simple! If you have machine transcriptions, a machine will transcribe the message to text when you receive a voicemail,. If you have human edited transcriptions, messages will be spliced into very short segments, sent out to our professional human transcribers, and then pieced back together before it’s sent back to you. This way you can always be sure that the privacy of your voicemails stays intact and your transcriptions are accurate.
