Voice 2.0Cool Tools - Find your own voice!

Innovative and often free Internet enabled voices services. They aren’t a telephone replacement – but often something entirely different. They are examples of what happens when MacGyver meets VoIP. For 100 years we have answered our phones, now they can answer to us.

Voicemail as text and digital audio.  GotVoice converts your cell, home and work voicemail to text and sends it to your phone and email.  Just read it on your cell phone or in email. It also integrates with VoIP systems that already send your voicemails as MP3 or WAV file attachments.  In addition, you can use lip-synched avatars to read your voicemail to you.  Or, if you need to reach many people atonce, you can use the GotVoice Composer to record a message using your computer, phone or text to speech tool, and broadcast the message to your friends or family.  http://www.gotvoice.com/
