Getting your voice mail online

Kirkland-based GotVoice said today it’s launching a free service that lets people access voice mail from their home phone and cellphone online. Through a personal GotVoice Web site, a user can listen to, forward and organize voice mail messages.

The free version limits users to checking their voice mail three times a day for each phone. You’ll have to pay a subscription fee to be able to check as many as 24 times a day.

Comcast says it’s working on a similar feature for its VoIP service, which launched in Washington in the last year. But that would only be for the digital home phone line that Comcast controls. GotVoice says it can access multiple lines, including analog lines, because of voice recognition software that can bridge traditional phone and the Internet.
