This document describes two methods to display Cisco SpeechView transcriptions in Microsoft Outlook. SpeechView, a feature that can be purchased with Cisco Unity Connection, allows voice messages to be transcribed into text. The two service levels of SpeechView are:
- SpeechView Standard - A fully automated service without human intervention.
- SpeechView Professional - Human-assisted service with very high transcription accuracy.
What are the methods to deliver a SpeechView transcription to Outlook?
Configure Device Notification
This procedure describes how to configure device notification for a user:
- Check the Enabled check box for the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) Notification Device.
- Check the Voice Messages check box in the 'Send Transcription of Voice Messages' section.
- Enter the email address of the recipient in the To text field under 'SMTP Settings.'
This procedure describes how to synchronize the device notification with Unity Connection:
- Go to Unity Connection Administration.
- Navigate to Users > user to be changed > Edit > Notification Devices.
Refer to the SMTP-Compatible Notification Devices section of the User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 9.x for additional information.
Configure Single Inbox
You can configure a single inbox for a user and have the messages synchronized to the Exchange server:
- Exchange 2010 or 2007 uses Exchange Web Services.
- Exchange 2003 uses WebDav.
Once the transcription process is complete, the Outlook message is updated in order to include the transcription.
