YouMail Adds Speech-to-Text Voicemail Transcription Service.

Addition of Speech-to-Text Capabilities Makes YouMail the Most Comprehensive Consumer Voicemail Service

LAS VEGAS -- YouMail (, the mobile industry's premier consumer voicemail service, today announced a new transcription capability that will enable users to receive voicemails converted to text. Users who opt-in will receive automatically transcribed voicemail messages to their email inbox or via text message to their mobile phone or PDA. The transcription service is available now for free through a beta program, with general availability expected later in 2008.

"We continue to make YouMail more fun and more useful, while keeping it very easy to use," said Alex Quilici. "We are the only voicemail service leveraging its user community to build a better voicemail experience, first in greetings, and now in transcription."

YouMail users have the opportunity to help improve the transcription service through interactive feedback. After a user receives a transcribed voicemail, they have the opportunity to rate the quality of the transcription, and identify any possible discrepancies. The system then uses this feedback to improve the accuracy of its transcriptions over time. This feature, unique to YouMail, allows users to participate in building the most accurate speech-to-text voicemail service on the market.

A Growing List of New, Free Features

Unlike many companies focused on speech-to-text, YouMail offers consumers a variety of free voicemail services. YouMail users can personalize greetings based on caller ID - recording greetings themselves, or easily choosing from a large and growing library of user-generated greetings and away messages. Recently, YouMail also introduced "smart greetings," where YouMail can automatically greets callers with their own name. YouMail users can also access their cell phone voicemail over the web or in their e-mail, easily share special voicemails, and save them forever.
