Sprint has had text-to-speech services on devices like the Samsung Epic 4G for quite some time. Now the company's introducing its My Wireless STS feature which is a new speech-to-speech service that aims to help people with speech disabilities by giving them access to an operator-assisted line every day of the week, all year round. Folks wanting to use this new service will have to dial *787 from their device, after which a Now Network rep will start a call and repeat every spoken word -- or ones that are unclear -- depending on users choice. It is my understanding that Sprint is the first in the industry to bring this service to market. If anyone uses it, please let us know so that we can share your experience with others.
