Message Sling offers voice-to-text message service

Start-up lets people use voice commands with e-mail and text messages and reads messages back.

SAN DIEGO--A new service announced at DemoFall on Monday allows people to use voice commands to retrieve and send e-mails and text messages over their mobile phone.

Message Sling's hands-free messaging service also lets people send dictated text messages, use voice to reply to e-mail messages, and listen to text-based messages.

The service lets people manage all their contacts, greetings, and messages into groups. Users can edit a caller's contact info and forward messages in e-mail.

For every message, the caller's number is automatically added to the contact list.
