    How to Send Voice-to-SMS Transcripts Using Twilio Voice and Programmable SMS Header

    Introduction

    SMS and audio transcripts can be a great way to perpetuate communication without needing to pick up the phone unexpectedly. Twilio streamlines this process through the Voice API using Twilio’s Markup Language, TwiML, which processes incoming calls accordingly.

    TwiML offers the <Record> verb, which records the caller's voice and can automatically generate text transcriptions sent right to your phone.

When I had the first generation Game Boy in my hands, it opened my eyes to the wonders of technology. How did they make this happen?
