London, UK: HulloMail™, providers of the award-winning voicemail mobile application for smartphones, has today incorporated its new voice-to-text transcription technology, Scribe™, into its Android SmartVoicemail™ mobile applications.

Hot on the heels of the iPhone launch of the first Scribe™ product, Get The Gist™, Android users now have the option to have a 10-second ‘snapshot’ of voicemails transcribed into text format within the app, therefore giving an indication of what the voicemail is about before playing back at a more convenient time.

The voicemail transcriptions are fully automated and use proven voice-to-text transcription technology that has been integrated in partnership with Nuance, a leader in voice and language solutions.

Andy Munarriz, founder and CEO of HulloMail said; "We have received some great feedback on the new Scribe technology from iPhone users and so are now pleased to extend the transcription service to Android users. This launch follows many months of testing various ‘fully’-automated transcription services that have fallen short of the mark. However, in Nuance we have found a partner that provides a balance of accuracy and quality of service for a highly competitive rate. And because it’s fully automated, we have been able to keep the cost as low as possible for our subscribers.”

John Pollard, vice president and general manager, voice-to-text services, Nuance Mobile said; "We’re very excited that HulloMail is extending Scribe to the Android market. People love having options when it comes to voicemail and with voicemail to text, people can quickly read their messages and decide whether to ignore, call back or simply respond with a text message.”

Pricing and Availability:
The new Get The Gist™ product is available for HulloMail’s Android and iPhone subscribers for a monthly subscription of £1.49 in the UK, $1.99 in the USA and €1.59 in Ireland.

For users of HulloMail’s free Android app, the monthly subscription is £1.99 in the UK, $2.99 in the USA and €2.39 in Ireland. This will be extended to the free HulloMail iPhone application in the next client update.
