iPhone Podcasting Service Adds Automatic Voice-To-Text Transcription

Jul 10th, 2009 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Microblogging

Mobilecasting startup Audioboo and SpinVox, a leader in voice to content messaging, have announced that the SpinVox API (Application Programming Interface) will be used to automatically convert speech to text across Audioboo’s applications – including iPhone podcasting and Twitter posting.

This is a cool new feature that will have all types of uses.

For example, Audioboo CEO Mark Rock suggest that the new speech-to-text feature can give “journalists a simple way to record draft articles and have them automatically converted to text and sent to their news desks.”

Beyond creating a mobile podcasting solution, Audioboo hopes to establish itself as a major platform for audioblogging.

“The deal with SpinVox is of immense importance to Audioboo as we roll out both our API and business model,” explains Rock.  “With the Audioboo API, any developer will be able to build their own mobile and web applications to record to Audioboo and SpinVox integration will be an important addition to that which we can deliver simply and quickly through the SpinVox API.”

  4. […] ‘Doing it for ourselves’ is one option, but invariably technology is often coming up alongside us offering a helping hand. I came across SpinVox –  a company that can take spoken words and feed them into a Voice Message Conversion System. This technology has initially been adopted to translate voicemail messages into simple text messages, but there are rumblings that the technology will be adopted elsewhere. More here. […]
