I like to use speech-to-text when I can't get to the phone. Reasons are many vs someone leaving a recording.
The ridiculously, miserly "10 second" rule constantly leaves me with people who cannot even leave their callback number before timing out.
I'd like to be able to leave my own answering-machine message stating they will only have ten seconds and to start with their name and number. Or, extend the time frame, or let the whole thing record itself to my own mobile vs the ISP/Telstra holding onto it.
