Voice Assist Expands Safe Driving Coverage across Canada

Recommended Posts

Voice Assist®, Inc. (OTCBB:VSST), an award-winning provider of mobile speech and handsfree solutions, today announced that it has expanded its handsfree driving coverage area to include all major cities in Canada.

Voice Assist is the award-winning conversational voice assistant that lets drivers use voice commands to answer calls, make calls, send and receive text messages, read and reply to email or post to social networks – without holding the phone or typing.

Drivers keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road to increase safety yet they can talk to Voice Assist in order to communicate by voice or data and still be productive.

“Distracted driving is a serious problem in Canada too,” said Michael Metcalf, CEO of Voice Assist. “Canada has over 22 million people with a registered driver’s license and the average commute time is 26 minutes each way. Larger cities like Toronto have even longer commute times. That’s a lot of people potentially looking at their phones while driving,” said Metcalf.

Voice Assist offers a simple solution that works on every phone and in every car to provide a handsfree safer driving solution.

“There is no reason for anyone who drives in Canada to have their head down looking at their phone anymore,” said Metcalf. “Now, anyone who drives in Canada can just say what they want to do and it’s done and they don’t even have to buy a new phone.”

Voice Assist provides a free version of its service that is ad supported and offers an ad free version for just $4.95 per month. Drivers can also add the optional Live Assist service which includes a live assistant to provide turn by turn directions, restaurant reservations, traffic reports, roadside assistance, travel reservations, hotel accommodations and more. Live Assist can be added for just $10 per month more.
