Vocalis and bring UK doctors e-mail by phone

UK Doctors need never be out of touch with their e-mails., Europe's largest on-line medical community, is now offering SpeechMail, the service developed by Vocalis, the international speech technologies Group. This will enable doctors to access their existing mailbox service from a telephone or mobile at any time.

Unlike any other service, Vocalis SpeechMail allows users to navigate their mailbox using simple spoken commands, such as playing messages, replying to messages, hearing the next message, and deleting messages.

This will allow doctors to have continual access to their e-mails - a vital communication tool - wherever they might be. The service enables users to dial the dedicated telephone number, enter their account number and PIN, and connect to their mailbox to hear their e-mails.

This improvement in communications means greater flexibility as to how and when e-mails are accessed, without having to return to the PC.

The new service further enhances's capabilities in providing clinicians with the most advanced communications tools, via the Internet, to assist them in their work.

Dr Neil Bacon, founder and Chief Executive of, comments; "As a practising clinician, I'm only too aware of the problems faced by doctors in sending and receiving emails during the working day. Indeed,'s central mission is to help modernise medical communication throughout the UK. SpeechMail is an example of how we are delivering on this promise. It will free clinicians from the need to return to their PC or laptop to deal with their email messages - a major benefit to every busy doctor in Britain.

Mike Williams, Business Development Director of Vocalis comments; "I am delighted have decided to offer Vocalis SpeechMail to their customers. The Internet is becoming a vital business tool for all professions. It is essential that doctors are able to access their e-mail when they are away from their computers, to keep in touch with any important updates. SpeechMail is the ideal and convenient way for doctors to keep up to date with their correspondence."
