Optus Launches Voice to Text™ Service Powered By SpinVox

14 day free trial available for Optus mobile customers

SYDNEY & LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Optus announced today the launch of its Voice to Text™ service. Optus Voice to Text™ will allow Optus’ mobile customers to convert spoken VoiceMail messages into text and receive them as a text message on their mobile phone.

Instead of customers having to listen to their VoiceMail message to capture important information, a text message of the VoiceMail will automatically be sent to a customer’s mobile phone. Once read, the message can be replied to, forwarded and saved. The caller’s number is presented as the sender of the text to make it simple for customers to reply with a voice call or text.

Jim Jaques, Marketing Director, Optus Consumer said, “Optus’ Voice to Text service is the simple and convenient way to receive a message when you miss a call. Whether you’re in a business meeting or you’ve got your hands full with children at the supermarket, sometimes you just can’t answer the phone and instantly reading an important message on your mobile can make life much easier.”

Anandh Maistry, Vice President Asia Pacific, SpinVox said, “This deal not only brings voicemail to text to Optus mobile customers it also adds to the millions of SpinVox users on five continents who are already enjoying the power of reading their voice messages. Voice to text is a truly exciting category of voice service which is spreading across the globe at an impressive rate and is now the fastest-growing network service since SMS.”

All new Optus Consumer and Small and Medium Business Post-Paid mobile customers will automatically receive a 14 day free* trial of Optus Voice to Text™ upon activation. Existing Optus Consumer and Small and Medium Business mobile customers can opt in to the 14 day free trial by texting the word “ON” to 7746. At the conclusion of the 14 day trial, customers can choose to continue their Optus Voice to Text™ service for $6.99 per month which includes unlimited messages^.

Optus’ corporate and government customers can also benefit from an Optus Voice to Text™ trial, ensuring that business professionals and project teams can experience the improved communications and response times that Optus Voice to Text™ users will enjoy. Optus Business customers can speak to their Account Manager for more information.

To distinguish from thumb-typed texts, every SpinVox converted message will appear within speech marks and carry the ‘spoken through SpinVox’ tagline, ensuring customers recognise the difference in message style.

SpinVox Voice to Text Conversion – How Does it Work?

At the heart of SpinVox is its ground-breaking Voice Message Conversion System™ (VMCS), which works by combining state-of-the-art speech technologies with a live-learning language process to assure quality of conversion.

SpinVox VMCS primarily uses speech recognition technologies to convert speech into text, but if it is not able to complete the conversion because words or phrases are indistinct, or a new word, phrase, brand name or colloquialism is used, then to ensure a high level of accuracy, it can ask a human agent for help, guiding them to the parts of the messages that need their assistance to ensure message accuracy continuously improves.

SpinVox converts messages for more than 30 million people worldwide and its VMCS now contains more than two billion words and phrases derived from the equivalent of 72 years of audio training – making it the world’s largest corpus of spoken language. Thanks to VMCS’ combination of technology and live-learning, the system constantly learns new words and phrases, making it increasingly efficient and reliable.

SpinVox VMCS™ employs high levels of security protocols and has been certified to prestigious ISO qualifications for both information security and quality.

For more information go to and follow SpinVox on Twitter – @spinvox.

* Free trial offer: There is a limit of one 14-day trial per customer. This offer is for a limited time only and may be withdrawn or changed at any time without notice to you.

More households are cellular only: landlines fade

I just read an interesting article confirming that now more households in the U.S. use cell phones exclusively and that landlines are on the way out. Part of the reason is the recession, but even if people were suddenly making seven figure incomes, they would not go back to landlines.

What does this suggest in terms of a mobile marketing opportunity? It means that if you are not taking advantage of mobile marketing to reach this growing customer base, you are missing a golden opportunity. The message is to start using mobile marketing now. Get a jump on the competition.

Forget about all the other media. Mobile marketing is the future, and it is here now.

Mobile Marketing Tips and Tricks for Recruiters

I first thought of roadside billboards when I first heard the term mobile marketing. But I've since come to understand that mobile marketing refers not to the mobility of the person seeing the ad but instead to the device on which the ad is displayed. In other words, marketing messages delivered to or even from your cellular telephone are mobile marketing. So what has this got to do with recruiters? Everything.

Over the past decade, email marketing has grown from a curiosity with scum selling hundreds of thousands of email addresses on CD's for $199 to a fast growing, efficient, and economical direct marketing technique. Rather than display your job ad to everyone like you do in a newspaper or even through a job posting ad, email and other forms of direct marketing allow you to target your audience so that your message is only delivered to those of interest to you. Want to hire engineers in Atlanta? Send your ad via email only to engineers in Atlanta rather than running it on a general job board where retail sales reps in Seattle will apply to it or on a niche job board where engineers in Atlanta will apply to it but so will engineers in Seattle.

I'm a big fan of email marketing when it is done ethically with double opt-in lists and skillfully with well constructed messages delivered to properly targeted recipients. But the reality is that email marketing is not the only way to reach job seekers, and perhaps already isn't the best way to reach a large number of highly targeted college students and recent graduates. What has come of age over the past few years is mobile marketing.

Virtually everyone in the U.S. has at least one email address and many have multiple. In just a decade we've gone from being pleasantly surprised when friends, family, and colleagues have email addresses to be shocked when people tell us that they don't. But the experience we have with email in the U.S. is not typical when compared to what is happening elsewhere in the world and, as a result, we can look to those countries for insight as to what we will likely experience here in the not too distant future. Did you know that globally twice as many people use text messaging as those who use email? Did you know there are now 258 million wireless lines in the U.S. and that by 2013 virtually 100 percent of American teens and adults will have their own wireless phone? And did you know that just two years ago in 2007 mobile marketing spending was a mere blip at $1.8 billion but that's expected to grow to $24 billion by 2013? Mobile marketing is booming and the lessons learned from email marketing are keeping mobile marketing cleaner and therefore more productive for those of us who are legitimate marketers.

Over the coming days, I will do my best to define key mobile marketing terms, describe the benefits of mobile marketing programs, walk you through how to start a mobile marketing program, discuss how to integrate your mobile marketing program with your other marketing programs, look at ways to track the effectiveness of your mobile marketing program, and conclude with some tricks and tips. Some of the information that I'll present will be from experiences we've had at with delivering cell phone text messaging (sms) and keyword campaigns while some will be from such third party sources as Lyris. But all of it will be written with the needs of the recruiter and hiring manager in mind for their needs are in some ways quite different from the needs of their colleagues in marketing yet in most ways surprisingly similar.

Don’t Buy FAPTurbo Forex Trading System: Giant Rip Off! Total Scam!

This is a warning. Be aware of a Forex Trading system called FAPTurbo that is being hyped all over the Internet, which is supposed to double your money every month. It doesn’t! I could never even get it to work. After tweaking and tweaking, I got a couple of trades out of it, never made a profit, and then it just quit working altogether. I religiously followed the instructions and set all the parameters perfectly as recommended in the manual.

In the sales hype, they tout the excellent customer support. Well, let me tell you, it’s non-existent. They do not respond, leave you high and dry, and keep your money.

There is supposed to be a 60 day guarantee no questions asked money back refund. Well fergetabout it. No one answers the phone. The voice mailbox on the answering machine is always full. No one ever returns calls. No one ever responds to email.

I have been trying to get a refund for weeks without any success. In desperation, I spent the money to send a registered refund demand letter to the New York City address listed in the Website. The post office returned my letter as undeliverable. Someone wrote on the envelope “The person and company have never been at this location.”

All I can conclude is that the entire operation is a flim flam Internet scam. Do not invest in this software. It did not work for me, and I doubt if it will work for you. There is no customer support. They do not honor their guarantees, and they do not exist at the address listed on the Website. Do not get involved as an affiliate either, for you will only be perpetuating the scam and will probably never see any compensation for your efforts.

Spread the word: FAPTurbo is a scam and a rip off. Steve, Mike, and Ulrich the supposed geniuses behind this fraud should all be in prison. Maybe the law will catch up with them, and you can help.

How to forward text messages to your email inbox

clip_image002When I was asked to review TxtForward, I had to stop and think about why I would want my text messages forwarded to my email inbox. Isn’t text messaging handy enough without cluttering up an already overburdened email inbox?

TxtForward is an application that will automatically forward your text messages to any email address you specify. You can determine if you want inbound, outbound or both forwarded.

Scratching my head, I began to ponder the possible benefits of forwarded text messages to an email address. The more I thought about it, the more benefits I conceived. Let me share with you the results and invite your comments if you see other uses.

First and foremost, I think the major benefit would be as a backup record to important texting exchanges as in the case of a legal transaction for business arrangements or travel plans. There is a log of text messages created in the Windows folder, but it can only be read in the client that created it. Having an email backup is more useful and makes more sense.

I’m playing around with the idea of creating a novel or a play based almost entirely on text message exchanges. I think it would be a hoot. Can you imagine a play that would have two people texting back and forth never saying an audible word to one another? The scenes would change from home to office to car to restaurant and so forth throughout the day, but texting would be the only interaction. The audience would be treated to two huge screens each representing the actors’ cell phones.

The problem my collaborator and I discovered was that some of the messages had been inadvertently erased. Some of the dates were screwed up and out of sequence when the machine was reset unwittingly and the date not adjusted. An email backup would have saved the day.

Besides backup, this utility could have a whole range of stealth applications. For instance, what about cheating spouses? The program could be surreptitiously installed in the unsuspecting suspected spouse’s phone and programmed to route an email to your lawyer, private eye, or perhaps to the other guilty party’s email. It’s also a way to make sure your kids are where they are supposed to be and with whom they’re supposed to be. When I was young, I used to go to the library a lot, or at least that’s what I told my parents. I wonder if kids still do that. Parents would probably just tell them to look it up online.

I must say that when I’m sitting in front of my computer working, it’s nice to have my text messages streamed in with my email so that I don’t have to deal with my phone. I use a program called True Connect from raspberry the places a tool bar on your Outlook ribbon that allows you to create and answer SMS messages. This brings up a wish list item for TxtForward, and that is to be able to reply to messages from an email client.

Another nice feature of TxtForward concerns those of us who have a whole stable of phones. As a writer/reviewer, I am always juggling several phones at any given moment. Some people have a private phone and a work phone. Wouldn’t it be nice if all your SMS messages could be directed to one depository, your email. Of course, with TxtForward this is no problem.

Another plus is that if you change phone numbers or get a new phone or SIM card, with TxtForward, your SMS records remain intact.

Now let’s look at security issues. Unfortunately, email clients that I’m familiar with do not allow the encryption of folders, files, and messages, so if your communications are sensitive, you are at risk. About the best you can do is password protect your whole email program, but this is a bother and isn’t really all that secure. Another suggestion is to create an obscure email account that you can password protect and use that for your messages with security issues.

clip_image004I have another approach. First you will need to get a copy of Resco Explorer, which is an amazing program in itself basically for Windows Mobile devices. It’s actually a whole suite of useful utilities. But of interest here is the fact that it places an item on your desktop right click menu button for encryption of files and folders. With this application installed on your desktop, you can then create a page in Word and simply drag your text message email over to the Word page taking care to keep them in order. You can annotate them and organize them. After you have saved the page you can encrypt it and password protect it. How’s that for a creative solution?

By the way, you have the choice of forward messages from the developer’s server or directly from you phone. Note that some services such as Gmail will not show messages sent to yourself. In this case, you would want to use Electric Pocket’s server or send them to another email account. Electric Pocket swears that you can have complete confidence and that they do not log, monitor or record messages on their server.

In conclusion, it seems that the usefulness of this application is only limited by your imagination. It should have a premium edition capable of sending to multiple email addresses. It would be nice if Electric Pocket addressed the issue of security too. TxtForward would be even more useful if you could respond to messages directly from the email program.

Take it for a trail run or make it yours for a mere $7.95. It’s available from

If you can think of any more helpful uses of this application, please share.

National Public Radio (NPR) goes mobile

clip_image002 I’ve had a love/hate relationship with NPR over the years. There’s lots to like about NPR, for it has some great content and unique programming along with being one of the few sources of classical music. I like Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, and Car Talk with those zany brothers. I appreciate Fresh Air, All Things Considered, and the news.

On the other hand, NPR has some serious negative features in my opinion. On the weekends, it has that awful Celtic music, which is repetitive, boring, and banal. Who would choose to listen to that stuff? And yet it goes on and on, year after year. There must be some heavy-duty, deluded sponsor who keeps it going. Certainly there could be far better, more creative programming to fill that slot. For a supposedly commercial-free platform, I grow weary hearing about their sponsors incessantly, and solicitations for more sponsors.

An improvement I would suggest is broadcasting scrolling text for the music being played and the composer/artist. I certainly appreciate this feature when listening to satellite radio and many other AM/FM stations. News can be broadcast this way as well while multi-tasking with other programming. I suppose it could also be used for mentioning sponsors. Perhaps this will change when stations begin HD broadcasting. But then how many people will have radios capable of receiving HD signals?

Another problem with NPR is that it seems every time I turn it on there is a fundraiser going on and on and on. While it bugs me, I usually fork over a donation every year because I want to support what I do like. However, it is usually a major inconvenience to make a contribution. I would be much more inclined to do so and more regularly if it were possible to do on my mobile phone or with PayPal instead of having to write a check, find a stamp/envelope, go to post office—fergetaboutit. Dropping everything to call on the phone and digging out a credit card isn’t much better. Get with it NPR—go mobile.

clip_image004 Actually, NPR has gone mobile with a truncated version of its full Website. You can access it at You’d think they would have used instead. There is a decent array of offerings there including “Local” News, Most Popular Stories, Story of the Day, Music, Politics, Business, Health and Science, Movies, Books, Interviews, Commentary, Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me! Quiz. Opening each of these headings brings up mostly text stories, but if the word “call” is next to a story, you can get a recording.

There are some 35 “local” stations representing only the larger markets. If you want to listen to one of these stations, you can place a “call” to connect. This could cost serious money if don’t have the right data plan. Hasn’t NPR ever heard of Wi-Fi? You can search for a station in your area by zip code or city name, but chances are it will not be online if it’s in a smaller market. There is also an opportunity to donate to your “local” station. But, again, it’s only the large market stations. The joke is that they give you a phone number to call. NPR just doesn’t get it, and is losing out on the power of mobile phones as a tool for charitable contributions.

I think they need to retool their entire money-raising machine. It’s outmoded and annoying. I recently sent our regional NPR fundraising representative a proposal for an innovative approach to fundraising that would have generated a sustainable residual income. She didn’t even have the courtesy to respond. It’s a good thing she doesn’t work for me; she would be looking for another job without a recommendation.

What amuses me is that the mobile version does not even mention RSS feeds, Podcasts, links for iPhone/Blackberry, text only site, API archives, Newsletters, MobiRadio, or Mspot. What about Windows Mobile?

NPR seems to be totally unencumbered with any knowledge of the interactive possibilities of mobile technology. There isn’t even an opinion section on the mobile version, nor are there any blogs. NPR needs to hire someone knowledgeable in Web 2.0. NPR is missing so many opportunities. It should have a presence on all the social networks. It should be Twittering away with timely Tweets. It should be texting and allowing its sponsors to have contests, sales, promotions, conducting surveys, texting coupons, sending out optimized mobile sites, and MMS messages as well. What an incredible waste not to be building an opt-in subscriber base for fundraising and communication purposes. Shame on NPR. Does NPR stand for Neo-Paleolithic Radio?

I suppose congratulations should be extended to NPR for offering a mobile version, but it is so lacking in mobile technology features that it is pathetic. One does wonder about in what century the mobile site was built. While it is certainly a start in the right direction, there is much room for improvement, which I hope will be forthcoming before the next ice age. Meanwhile I shall restrict my NPR experience to listening via satellite radio over Wi-Fi.

The Most Powerful Marketing Tool ever Invented

Who doesn’t have a cell phone these days? Many people are eliminating their landlines and using a cell phone exclusively. People who pack cell phones are never without them wherever they go. That’s what makes it the most powerful advertising tool in the history of the universe. You can get your message to your targeted, opt-in audience instantly with a measured instant response through SMS.

SMS stands for Short Message Service. Perhaps you are more familiar with the term Text Messaging, which is the same thing. The teen crowd has embraced this technology as the preferred method of communication and considers email something that their grandparents use. However, texting has now caught on across the board as a super quick method of communication because it is unobtrusive and not cumbersome like email.

Just think of the crisis that could have been averted if the University of Virginia had sent out an SMS alert to faculty and students instead of relying on email, which most people didn’t see until they got home that night after the tragedy was all over.

Not only can you reach your audience immediately with timely information, but you can also deliver coupons and direct them to a more informative Website link. Suppose you are a restaurant owner who wants to run a special on a slow day. Send out a coupon an hour before lunch and watch the people flock in to your restaurant. Suppose you are a realtor and you put your text message code on your for sale signs. People can text to that number and immediately receive a response with all the specs of the house including pictures of the interior.

If you are running a non-profit organization and you want to remind people to use your shopping mall or apprise them of specials, use SMS. Most savvy shoppers shop on their phones anyway. Too bad more of the vendors are still in the Stone Age without .mobi sites optimized for small screen handheld devices. This is changing as vendors are beginning to realize their oversight.

Let’s face it, more people have and use mobile phones today than computers, and they always have their phones with them. Accordingly, which do you think is the better medium for reaching people and informing them of your program?

Are you beginning to appreciate the power of SMS marketing? Do you see why it is the most powerful marketing tool in the history of the universe? You should be using it too.

Church’s SMS Campaign

This is not a religious movement. Church’s Chicken restaurant chain has entered the world of text message marketing with a brilliant two-prong campaign aimed to attract digital natives. Phase one is a sweepstakes involving a $7500 cash prize and copies of the Afro Samurai game with consoles.

The contest is fueled by in-store advertising driving traffic to its Website where people sign up for the contest and opt-in to receive text messages with announcements and free coupons. Contestants are required to answer four important questions for harvesting marketing data.

The second part of the campaign features weekly text messages with a chance to win posters and $1000 cash prizes along with coupons as an incentive not to opt-out.

What a great way to promote your business. If you are ready to start text messaging to drive business through your doors, visit
