Optus Voice to Text

Voice to Text is an exciting VoiceMail feature that converts spoken VoiceMail messages into text and then sends them to your mobile handset as an SMS. This saves you having to dial into your VoiceMail box to listen to messages and means you can read the message at times when it might not be appropriate to call VoiceMail, for example, if you're in a meeting or out at the movies. It only takes a few minutes for the average VoiceMail to get converted and sent to your mobile.

  • You can still listen to your VoiceMail messages by dialling 321 from your mobile.
  • Voice to Text is set up for conversion of voice messages spoken in English.
  • You can store up to 60 Optus Voice To Text messages in your VoiceMail box for up to 5 days.

If your VoiceMail message cannot be converted at all, due to unsupported language, background noise or for some other reason, you will receive an SMS notification advising you simply that you have a new message.
