Voice recognition telephony company Vocalis Group has signed contracts with ten ISPs to offer its SpeechMail service to Net users in the UK. Ace Internet, Airtime Internet, Aviator Networks, Cherryblue Ltd, Croxsons New Media, Cyberscape, INC Internet Services, Madasafish, Strongnet and Telinco have all inked agreements with the Cambridge-based company. It means that an extra 650,000 Net users will now be able to access their email from any telephone, wherever they are using simple spoken commands. This latest announcement follows hard on the heels of a similar deal with the UK's leading ISP Freeserve which will soon be offering its customers SpeechMail. The company intends to generate its revenue by taking a cut of the call charges when users phone in for their email. A spokeswoman for Vocalis said the company was also preparing to introduce the technology to the US in October. ® For more ker-ching tune in to Cash Register and turn on to our daily Net finance news
