Voice-to-text service offered for BlackBerry

SpinVox's plug-in for BlackBerry handsets converts voice mail into text. It also enables users to respond with e-mail, SMS, or voice.

SpinVox, a United Kingdom-based voice-to-text specialist that in October introduced support for "microblogging" networks such as Twitter, Jaiku, and Pownce, has launched a plug-in for BlackBerry handsets.

Called SpinVox Voicemail, the service identifies the caller and converts the voice message into text or e-mail or both. (The message remains audible.)

SpinVox users then have the option to reply by e-mail, voice, or SMS text message. The monthly cost of the service is based on the number of voice-to-text conversions used: there's a 10-conversion package available for about $6, a 20-conversion package for about $10, and a 50-conversion one for about $20.
