Want to UPLOAD recorded voicemail greeting file from my computer.
Hi. First post here. I've been a Uverse customer (TV, internet, and voice) for a few weeks now.
I started a thread on dslreports.com on this topic. Thought I would raise it here for potentially broader Uverse audience.
There is a pretty cool feature on the Uversecentral web pages for managing your voicemail in which you can hear your current voicemail greeting as a WAV file played on your computer's speakers.
I want the inverse. I want to ability to UPLOAD an audio file of my custom greetings (WAV, mp3, whatever they will accept) from my computer and have it become my greeting. In other words, I do NOT want to use the telephone as the recording device. And I do not want to re-record my custom greeting files.
This idea came about while listening to a favorite weekend radio show. Some lucky caller to the radio show who wins the little contest gets to have the famous announcer on the show studio-record (and presumably delivered electronically) the winners home answering machine greeting. There are also professional recording services available for recording greetings of which I might wish to take advantage.
It makes sense to me that AT&T would have the ability to allow customers to upload to their own voicemailbox greeting that has been recorded and edited using the superior tools available for computer audio editing. If they can give me a WAV file, they should be able to take one in return.
I could keep a library of my desired greetings on my computer and upload the one I want from my hotel room, wherever I am in the world. That would be particularly useful when I am out of the country. Adding whatever sounds I want (some of my own music compositions, for example) to my greeting would be a snap with the ability to manage my greetings on my own computer.
If there is already a way to do this, someone let me know. Otherwise, anybody else interested in this capability?
