Rogers Wireless offering Text 2 Landline service
Posted on 26-Jan-2005 08:18 | Tags Filed under: News



ScanSoft, Inc. and TeleMessage have worked together to provide Rogers Wireless a SMS to Landline solution. With TXT 2 Landline, wireless users can send messages to anyone with a landline. Text messages are converted to a natural voice with ScanSoft RealSpeak, and are read aloud to the user in English or French.

With the TeleMessage messaging application, the message is converted to speech using ScanSoft RealSpeak and delivered to the landline phone for pick up from the recipient, who will hear the message in a natural, conversational voice and even have the ability to reply via a voice message to the sender. The wireless caller receives detailed confirmation of message delivery - from time of pick-up to whether it was answered by a live person or an answering system. If a reply was sent, the sender can simply click a single button on his phone to dial in to a unique phone number to retrieve the message.

Roger Wireless is Canada's largest telecom provider.

Text messaging has quickly become one of the most popular modes of wireless communication, and provides users with a discreet, non-intrusive way to communicate without using their voice - enabling real-time communication anytime, anywhere.
