Ring Central, Phone.com and YouMail.com offer free and free trial voice mail greetings for professional and personal use. The sites’ packages offer professional voice overs, options for choosing male or female voices and bilingual messages in English, Italian, Spanish, French, Japanese and Chinese.
YouMail.com divides its free messages into 17 categories including polite, inspirational, music, foreign language and entertainment themes, as well as political, general, away and celebrity themes. Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, President Kennedy and Homer Simpson greetings balance serious business messages in British English and notifications that indicate a meeting, will return, away for the day, gone for the weekend and sorry we missed you.
Ring Central’s 30-day free trial includes professionally voiced messages through a partnership with SNAP
Recordings, an agency that specializes in diverse voice talent. Clients choose from U.K., U.S., Australian or Canadian English or talent fluent in Spanish, French and Italian. The service also provides background music, suggested scripts and examples and templates for recording a custom greeting.
Phone.com also offers a 30-day trial that includes access to a variety of voice mail options including professional recordings of original scripts submitted through an online form. Resources include pre-written scripts, background music and suggestions for professional prompts when a client is on hold.
