Simulscribe

Simulscribe is a voicemail service that transcribes your messages and sends them to you in an email. It's one of those really simple, super convenient solutions that is especially helpful in situations where you can't pick up the phone to listen to messages—especially for mobile email users. Usually the messages come through quite accurately, but from time to time there's a miscommunication. Fortunately each message is delivered with an audio file in case you want to listen from your computer. There is an option to have your messages delivered by SMS, but that gets a bit messy for long, rambling messages. And of course, you can still just call in to listen to your voicemail.
