SummaryRingCentral's Voicemail-to-text is a feature that allows Users to preview or read the text transcription of voicemail messages when you are not able to answer the call. This feature automatically converts your voicemail messages into text form to let you screen messages and reply to the most important call first. The Voicemail Preview feature is available to RingCentral Office Ultimate Edition subscribers only.

How does it work?

When a voicemail is received, the message is translated and displayed in your Email Notification, RingCentral Phone or RingCentral Phone Mobile App.
 
Example: A sales agent cannot answer calls during a meeting or at a restaurant with a client. With the Voicemail Preview feature enabled, he is able to "read" the voicemail messages from his RingCentral Phone Mobile App.

Limitations

• Voicemail to text conversion is not instantaneous and may delay the delivery of the voicemail Notification Email (depending on the length of a message).
• Voicemails are converted to text using an automated machine based process that is not 100% accurate. Accuracy of the conversion can be influenced by the accent of the speaker, the quality of the connection and other factors.
• Voicemail-to-text conversion is limited to the first 60 seconds of the message.
• Short voicemail messages (less than 5-6 seconds) will not be converted to text.
• Bulk enablement not supported. Feature needs to be enabled for each phone number or User. 
• View transcript as a text message is not offered.
