SpinVox

Spinvox is a voice to text service. Spinvox started with their (now patented) Voice Message Conversion System in 2005, becoming one of the first companies to convert voicemails to text messages for both landlines and mobile telephones. Users subscribed to the service have incoming voicemail converted and sent as text messages to their mobile phone or emails in their inbox.

In order to compete with other similar service providers, Spinvox has recently introduced some other features such as SpinVox Blog; it allows users speak a post to a blog from any phone. There is also the Memo service: users speak memos to themselves – the messages subsequently get transcribed and sent as email reminders. Lastly, SpinVox users can speak a text message, update social networks, or send messages to groups of people at once using recepient lists.

SpinVox is the only voicemail-to-text conversion service available in six languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Italian.

Competitors include: Jott, Simulscribe and Pinger.
