I’ve had a GrandCentral account kicking around for a while, and today I checked in and found out that I was eligible for a free migration to Google Voice (think “Gmail, but for telephone calls”). Once of the nice features of Google Voice is its automatic transcription of incoming voicemail messages. To test this out I left myself a message, which it transcribed as:
hi peter it’s peter regarding a calling i would like to get together with you this afternoon to me about the penske file could you give me a call when you get a chance at (785) 756-0000 again your regarding a (785) 756-0000 thanks talk to you soon
Here’s the MP3 they recorded that was used for the transcription. Not a bad job, but certainly not perfect, especially near the end.
