Voice Mail Upgrades
University of Kentucky Information Technology (UKIT) is upgrading both main campus and UK HealthCare employee voice mail during spring/summer 2012.
Over the past year, a select group tested Exchange voice mail, which alerts users of voice mail through Outlook email. The voice mail message can be reviewed through an office telephone, computer, cell phone, or other mobile device. In addition, the system provides speech-to-text in the voice mail notification email. This allows users to read voice mail when listening is unavailable.
The Exchange voice mail system also provides users the following features:
ˇ Remotely listening to email being read using text to speech;
ˇ Calling into the system and asking for the system to read your calendar schedule; and
ˇ Calling into the system and creating meetings and writing emails orally.
UKIT will migrate users from the existing WindStream voice mail platform to Exchange voice mail without a charge. To schedule a voice mail upgrade, contact Denise McCarthy at 218-0484.Back to Top
