Ottawa, Ontario – my1voice, the feature-rich virtual phone service for small business, has announced the availability of voicemail transcription. Available immediately, voicemail transcription takes incoming voicemail messages and converts them to text, allowing customers to quickly read voicemails at any time or place. The service is available to all my1voice customers at no additional cost.

“Small business owners often spend quite a bit of time in meetings or outside the office. It’s not always convenient to listen to voicemails, especially when they have several waiting,” said Steve Adams, vice president of marketing for Protus, the provider of my1voice. “Our new voicemail to text service saves small businesses a tremendous amount of time by allowing them to quickly scan the contents of voicemails wherever they may be, helping them prioritize messages that need to be acted on right away in order to maximize their productivity.”

With this new feature, my1voice customers can have voicemail messages converted to text and sent to them via text message (SMS), e-mail or both. Customers can then read their messages in a fraction of the time it takes to listen to them. These real-time text messages can also be shared with co-workers, as well as stored and indexed for future reference.

Voicemail transcription is included with every my1voice subscription. For voicemails converted to text via SMS message, standard text message rates apply. For more information about my1voice, or to sign-up for a free 30-day virtual phone trial, visit
