The Callagenix Email-to-Voice Service allows individuals to send
emails to an email address at callagenix.com. The email address
should consist of the telephone number where the email should be
addressed (the address does not need to exist on the Callagenix
server since it will be created if necessary). The text contained
within the email will be converted into a voice message through
a text-to-speech conversion process and a text message (SMS) will
be transmitted to the telephone number defined in the email address,
notifying the telephone owner that a message has been received.
The text message will contain a telephone number for the user to
dial to retrieve the message. This number will be a premium rate
telephone number and will be clearly described as such unless the
owner of the telephone has signed up for a Callagenix account and
has available funds. In this case the telephone number will be a
normal national rate number. In either case, however, the message
will be replayed back to the callers when they dial in to the number.
Once the message has completed playing, the caller is able to select
from a number of options. These include :
- Replay message
- Delete message
