Hate Texting? Try Dial2Do Voice Command Service to Send Messages

Hate Typing?  Try Dial2Do Voice Command Service

I've discovered a free online service that helps you reduce your typing. It is called Dial2Do.  Through the use of voice technology, Dial2Do let's you send and listen to email messages, text messages, reminders to yourself, and even post messages to Twitter using your voice.  If you are tired trying to type from your phone's keypad, Dial2Do may be the app for you.

To set up your account, go to Dial2Do. Create your account using your email address and a password.

Once your account is created, you'll have a series of commands that you use.  For example, to send a text message to someone you dial the Dial2Do number, speak your command ("text") and then speak your message.  Depending on your preferences, you can have a copy of your spoken message texted to your cell phone and/or email.

I plan too use this service to send Twitter messages when I am away from my laptop, and I'll also use it to send text messages.  But there are dozens of other voice commands you can select.  You can use "weather" to listen to a weather report.  There's "business card" when you want to save someone's contact info before you lose their card.  And use "translate" to change your voice message to a text message in a different language!

You can even use Dial2Do to vocally send posts to your blog if you use Blogger or WordPress. Now that is cool!

Lots of great possibilities on Dial2Do. Check it out.

This could really come in handy when I'm driving down the road and just need to get a text message off.  I just might give it a whirl.

Bob, you understand the concept exactly!  Have fun with it.

Kathryn, this one sounds like it is worth bookmarking. I will check it out later today. Thanks for the tip.

Sounds wonderful. There was a service like this provided by another company like this. The beta was free, then they started charging (a lot). I love it. I can't wait to check this one out!

Barbara and Troy:  "Free" can be a temporary term for sure.  Plenty of companies offer their product free and then start charging once you are hooked.  Let's hope this one is able to keep offering this at the current rate.
