Visual Voicemail and Transcription

Google Voice also comes with its own visual voicemail interface, as shown in Figure 4-8. So long as people call your Google Voice number, messages are stored in the Google Voice inbox. Better yet, it transcribes them, so you can sort through messages as if they were e-mails.

It's far from perfect. You still get garbled words, but it gives you a good idea what the message says before you need to put the phone to your ear, and it gets better with practice. You can also have your Google Voice messages sent to you by text or e-mail.
