Google Voice – Voicemail Transcription Test

As you may, or may not know, Google purchased the GrandCentral service awhile ago. GrandCentral gave members a free phone number that they could use to ring multiple phones at once, free voicemail, and a number of privacy settings. Google recently rebranded it as "Google Voice" and added a number of features, the most interesting being voicemail transcription – Google will translate your voicemails into text and send them to you via email (and send as a text message).

Since it wouldn't let me leave myself a voicemail, Spudart was kind enough to call and leave a test message. The transcription is pretty bad. I've posted the resulting voicemail and transcription as a video on youtube.

Later this week I'll post his second call – reciting the Pledge Of Allegiance three times. 🙂
