Zoomsafer, a vendor of vehicle software designed to minimize driver distractions, has launched a new hands-free service which enables voice-based access to text and e-mail. The new VoiceMate service audibly alerts the driver to messages that are received from prioritized contacts. By touching a single key on his or her phone, the driver can listen and respond by voice to text or e-mail messages. The feature augments ZoomSafer's existing hands-free services for smartphone users, including auto-replies to incoming e-mails, text messages and unanswered phone calls; prioritized filtering of incoming calls, and one-touch access to voice-activated dialing. VoiceMate is an add-on to the basic ZoomSafer package, costing an additional $3.99 per month or $40 per year. Basic ZoomSafer costs $2.99 per month or a one-time fee of $25. ZoomSafer allows users to customize their systems. Options include automatic or manual launch of the system; restricted access to text, e-mail and Web while driving; auto-reply to text, e-mail and missed phone calls; making and receiving hands-free phone calls; managing inbound and outbound calls based on priority, and enabling or disabling the passenger-exit option.
