Per Matt Singley’s recommendation, I decided to give SpinVox a try. I don’t use voicemail on my cell phone so I decided to run it on my office line. Setting it up with our Asterisk PBX was pretty straightforward.
When you sign up with SpinVox they give you a DID (Direct Inward Dial) number to forward your calls too. They tell you to setup call forward no answer (CFNA) and call forward busy (CFB) to direct to that DID number.
I have the calls coming in to my DID at the church forwarding to a ring group that rings (ringall) my desk phone at church, my desk phone at home and the soft phone on my laptop. I setup another ring group that dials the external DID given to me by SpinVox (just put in the phone number followed by #). I then set the “Destination if no answer” on my initial ring group to the ring group that calls the SpinVox DID.
So far it is working great, I am amazed at how accurate SpinVox is at converting speech to text.
