Sending Voice Email

A voice email is an email message with a .WAV file attached that contains the voice message. Badge users can send a voice email by commanding the Genie to “Send email to person’s first and last names,” and then recording a message. The Vocera server checks the recipient’s profile and sends the voice email as an attachment to a text email.

The following illustration shows the process of sending a voice email message from a badge:
