For people in a hurry, voice messages can be the most effective way to share ideas, but if the receiver is in a meeting or otherwise unable to listen, this actually delays communication.

Once logged into NYNJA, users simply find their desired contact, send their voice message and their colleagues can simply press the voice message bubble for one second, press transcribe, and voila! The message will appear with remarkable accuracy underneath the original voice message.

Hint: You can also leave yourself messages to transcribe for use later as notes or to save time on typing!
