Automated telephone calls. Sounds complex and expensive? It isn't!
Email is a simple way to send messages, whether sending manually or integrating into a software solution. We can convert these simple emails into voice calls, delivered to both landlines and mobile phones.
The VoiceCast service can handle 700 simultaneous calls. If you're looking to send a high volume of calls, utilizing the web dashboard will simplify loading of calls. See VoiceCast for more details.
Calls are charged per minute, per target.
Calls answered by an answering machine are charged for.
Calls that fail due to a bad number or another communication error are not typically charged for.
Once the calling has completed, you will receive a report containing individual information on each call.
Information includes the number of seconds the call was active, which keypad buttons were pressed, whether the call reached a human or an answerphone, etc.
We have a range of Text to Speech voices available. These include both Male and Female voices with different accents.
Voices are selected in four ways:
- As an account default, set up by your account representative
- Manually selected from the TTS Engine dropdown if sending via the web dashboard
- Dynamically set within your SFV file if sending advanced VoiceCast calls
- By recording your own audio into a WAV or MP3 file
You are currently unable to supply a text to speech voice, however you are welcome to record your own audio as a WAV or MP3 file and submit this instead of text-to-speech.
To do so, simply attach your WAV or MP3 file to the email and this will be used instead of the email body.
Three easy steps to send Email-to-Voice Messages
Step One: Open your Email Client
Supported email clients include Outlook, Thunderbird, Hotmail, Gmail, Xtra, Apple Mail, iOS, Android, Blackberry and more
Step Two: Email's "To" contains the telephone number
Step Three: Type the message into the body of the email, then click Send!
Tracking: You'll receive a report advising the call's result once completed
Voicemail detection is built into VoiceCast. You will receive full reports on which calls were really answered and which went to answering machines. You can even play a completely separate message to suit your later-listening audience, or we can end the call without even leaving a message.
The solution is fully hosted. This means there is no special equipment or computer software required. All configuration can be done using a Web Browser or Email Client. We also provide a complimentary Voice Recording service, so you can dial our dedicated telephone line and record your Voice Messages for sending.
