Plymouth, MN, United States, 2007/06/09 - Service could significantly impact "texting while driving" phenomenon, the use of email by the blind, and commuters ability to stay on top of email - PhoneConfirm.com.
eMail2Phone.net, the leading provider of email to phone voice messaging services, today announced general availability of its dial-in to email feature.
The new eMail2Phone.net feature enables users to use any phone to dial-in to an email account and have their email read as a high-quality, automated voice over a phone. Like ordinary email, eMail2Phone.net users can listen to a preview of who the email is from and the subject heading before choosing to listen, save, or reply.
The new inbound eMail2Phone.net feature enables busy professionals and commuters to listen to their emails. Because it also can record a voice reply that is immediately sent back to the original email sender as a voice file there is no need to text while driving!
The new Email to Phone feature enables a variety of users from busy commuters, visually-impaired and the blind, to interact with their email by phone. The eMail2Phone.net service also works in areas where computer access is not available, but where plain old phone telephone service (POTS) is available.
"Listening to email over a phone makes a tremendous amount of sense for commuters, the visually impaired and blind, because it enables them to improve the efficiency of their email," said Vadim Mazo, CEO, of eMail2Phone.net. "This is what an online communication service must do – provide a solution to a problem and open up possibilities for the automation of business processes online so that companies can focus on the positive possibilities in the marketplace."
How the dial-in feature of eMail2Phone.net Works
eMail2Phone.net enables users to have select email sent to a yourname[at]eMail2Phone.net email box where it is accessible to the user. The user dials into the eMail2Phone.net email system by punching in a personal identification number (PIN). Once inside the system, a high-quality automated voice indicates the number of current saved and new email messages. The user may elect to skip their saved messages and only listen to new messages or listen to their saved messages. The system will read who the email is from and the subject heading and the user then uses their keypad to choose to listen, delete, save, or reply to the email message. If the user chooses to listen to the email message the body of the message is read by a high-quality automated voice. The EMail2Phone.net Phone Identity Verification service is available today for a 30-day free trial.
