A MSCNewsWire Update - Right now, July 21, we are in the final stages of testing our MSC VoxPop App preparing it for release. This is a resource that will enable us to gather news and content straight from the horse's mouth so to speak by utilising the very latest in AI as it applies to speech recognition on a smartphone or tablet. Your smartphone becomes a recording studio in your pocket for use any time of the day or night.
The App is available for download free of charge from both the Apple App and Google Play stores. Yes it is still in development however it would be great to have it trialed in the market place. So go to it.
Once downloaded all you do is push the red microphone beside the "Trialing The MSC VoxPop" question. Record a short message and press publish. You can check your recording by pressing replay and then either Publish or Cancel and record again. Your recording will come through to us here at MSCNewsWire and could very well be included in our news release program.
