So how does Fonality measure up? As many humor blogs can attest, auto correcting text, text-to-speech and speech-to-text is far from perfect. But these are just the first few tests. Voice transcription software actually has a learning curve. The more it hears one voice, the more accurate it becomes. The human brain is wonderful at voice recognition. We can understand unfamiliar words by the context; we can decipher accents, we can recognize and adapt foreign phrases such as “bon voyage!” “caveat emptor,” and “hasta la vista…baby.” Fonality’s voicemail transcription service is designed with business in mind, so you can expect it to pick up numbers most easily, and, to a certain extent, addresses. This is a valuable to save time, particularly if you’ve already heard the message and want to look up a number or address. If you want more than just the basics, nothing can replace the personal touch.
