Humberto writes in to point us at this handy use of the Google Voice transcription feature. In his Voice2LED Project, Josh converted a simple LED sign into a voice-activated one by connecting it up to his phone number. It turns out that when you leave a message on a Google Voice voice-mail account, it is automatically transcribed into text and sent to your email. To take advantage of this, Josh built a program that looks for messages that start with a particular phrase, and then displays the rest of the text on the screen. He built the sign using instructions from nerdkits, and his source code is listed on his site.

This looks like a fun way to leave messages or notifications to the people that you live with.
