Spinvox exits sotto voce

Nearly 4 years after I first started using Spinvox their new owners sent me a polite text message telling me that my service would be turned off within 7 days so I’d better make alternative arrangements. I was a paying customer at first before, I’m not sure when, Spinvox decided not to charge individual customers and so gave me 1 or 2 years free use. I’ve been a heavy user since the beginning – perhaps 15 messages a day – so I’ll miss it.

I’m checking out the competition, including VoxSciences.

Update: 24/3/10 … I’ve tried the VoxSciences demo on their website. Nothing … doesn’t work … doesn’t convert my voice to text. Maybe it’s just me. I’m finding it very hard to actually listen to voicemails, even after just a day

Update 28/3/10: VoxSci working now. I’ve taken them up on a free 7 day trial.

Update 13/5/10: I recommend these guys. Voice to text interpretation is good quality and fast. No problems in setup. VoxSci send your voicemails as text and/or as email.
