Personal Voice Assistant

PVA is a form of highly sophisticated voicemail. Not hardware, it is an add-on service available when subscribing to telephone or cellular phone service through a telecommunications company.

After setup, PVA is accessed by password through any phone. A subscriber can obtain voice-based telephone/address book access, limited calendar access, voice-activated dialing, and voice-eMail. Functionality is based on voice commands, such as, "Call Sean McCullough's phone number." Perfect for those who want the convenience of not carrying an address book, calendar scheduler, laptop computer, or a PDA. PVA is becoming more popular and is available in many areas.
