Help Improve Google Voice Transcription Quality

Google Voice automatically transcribes voicemail messages so Google Voice users can get a sense of what messages are about without needing to listen to them. The automated process sometimes works great, sometimes not so well.

According to the Google Voice blog:

Google Voice automatically transcribes voicemail messages so you can get a sense of what messages are about without needing to listen to them. The automated process sometimes works great, sometimes not so well.

And this is where you can help by “donating” some of your voicemail messages. Until now, the only feedback you could give was to let us know if the quality of the transcript was good enough to be useful or not, by checking the corresponding box next to the message. You can now go one step further by letting us figure out why it was good or bad. When you rate a transcript, you will be asked whether you would like to donate the message. You have three options:

Messages donated to Google may be listened to, manually transcribed and/or used to gauge transcription improvements over time, but will never be made public or used for any other purpose than improving the transcription quality.

My experience with Google Voice transcriptions has been surprisingly accurate compared to the other voice to text transcription services I have tried.

I have donated the transcript below to help Google Voice improve its transcription accuracy.
