APEX, N.C. – , a provider of voice over Internet Protocol communications services, is adding a voicemail-to-text feature.

The “visual voicemail” transcribes voice messages, converts to text and delivers to customers via e-mail.

“Busy business people are frequently in situations, such as meetings and seminars, where checking voicemail is not appropriate,” said FeatureTel Founder and Chief Executive Officer Paul Levering, “or they simply don’t have the time. The reality, though, is that we all have a need to stay connected to our work. Visual voicemail allows users to discretely and easily stay on top of important messages while going about the rest of their business day.”
