Voice SMS are read-out text messages which can be sent to mobile phones or landlines. The text in your message will automatically be read by a synthetic voice in multiple languages.
Enter the recipient in the “To-field”. Sending to multiple recipients at the same time is possible, including a mix between phone numbers and email addresses. As you type, the system provides suggestions for recipients based on what you have saved in your address book or were sent previously.
In order for the system to know that it is precisely Voice SMS you want to send, you must either add the prefix voice: or 999 befor the number. The system automatically changes 999 to voice:
You can also change an already entered number to Voice SMS by clicking on the recipient list and changing the icon in front of the number:
Copy-paste from Excel
Do you have a recipient list in an xls-file? Copy the entire column with email addresses and paste. If you also want to have the recipients’ names, the name column must be in the right in the xls file, then you must copy both columns.
Add from the adress book
Click on to the right in “To field” to search for recipients from your address book.
Now you automatically get the contents of your address book, you see which labels you can choose from, and you can also search in the “value-filed” if you have imported an xls file. You are free to modify your search and will always see the search result at the bottom left, then click on Save selection. Click on New selection if you want to add more recipients with other labels and close the box when you are done. Your selections are now in the To-field, click on it if you want to review or change them.
Write your Text to Speech
The text you write as a message will be read out to the recipient by a computer generated voice.
We support 18 languages, which is selected based on the recipient’s country code. You can also specify the desired language in the message (see below example). If you send your message to a country which the language is not supported, English will be selected automatically.
It is important to keep in mind that your text will be not translated. For example, if the message is to be read out in Finnish, the text should be written in Finnish.

Login with BankID is selected by default. You can also choose which social security number or numbers should be able to log in.
If you do not enter a personal ID, anyone receiving the message can log in with BankID. You will then receive a notification of which personal ID has logged in.

Combine with Signing
You can combine your text message with signing, it is useful when you want to send an agreement or other sensitive information. The recipient must sign the sent document with eID or a one-time password, the signed document will then be sent back to your email or URL.
Click on the symbol. There are several signing options to choose from:
Choose which eID the recipient should use to sign the document. The default is the Swedish BankID, but you can also choose the eID for Finland, Norway or Denmark.
You can also select a one-time password as a signing method. Click on the arrow to bring up the signing options. The one-time password is sent to the recipient in the same way as you send your signing request, either via email or SMS.
One-time passwords are created automatically when the recipient is ready to sign.
If you select signing directly on the screen (draw) as the signing type, the recipient can sign by drawing their signature with a mouse or with their finger.
Choose right message format
To the right of the subject field, you can choose which format you want for your message.
Plain text can be used for most mailings. For example, SMS and messages which contain plain text.
Rich text is good for sending emails. You will get more tools to make your email organised and you can attach images and other files.
Plain text/Rich text is selected if you want to send Link SMS. You can write a short text as an SMS in the field “Plain text”, then we automatically add a link at the end of the SMS which the recipient can click if they want to see your message.
This option is also good it you want to send a message to phone numbers and email addresses at the same time. The formatted message is then sent as a regular HTML- formatted email to the email addresses.
More settings for the message
Here you can make more advanced settings which only apply for a particular mailing.
The validity time determines how long we try to deliver an SMS after it has been sent. For example, you send a meeting reminder one hour before a meeting, but you do not want the reminder delivered after the meeting is over. Enter the validity time in hours:minutes. The minimum time is 5 minutes, the maximum is 72 hours. Validity time has no effect on fax or email messages.
You can set a name for your email with any text. For example, the company’s name or a specific department can be set as a name for an email. However, this does NOT change the email address that is used as the originator.
