SpinVox Offers New Guidelines to Help Users Practice 'Safe Text'

Text-Related Injuries on the Rise

ATLANTA, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- SpinVox, the leader in voice-to-content messaging, today issued new guidelines to help mobile users practice 'safe text' in light of a dramatic rise in text-related accidents.

With more than 363 billion text messages sent last year in the US alone (CTIA), there is growing concern over individuals who text while conducting activities that require full attention. A growing number of injuries and outright tragedies have underscored the dangers associated with texting while on the go. Driving and cycling pose the greatest danger, but even such routine tasks as cooking and walking on a sidewalk can lead to serious injury when mixed with the distraction of text messaging.

"There is an increasing amount of injuries -- some minor, some severe, some even fatal -- related to text messaging while on the go," said Daniel Doulton, SpinVox Co-Founder and CSO. "People are not paying enough attention to their surroundings. You need to quickly read your message, then use voice to content services to reply back."

According to a recent report published by The American College of Emergency Physicians, America is facing a significant increase in the number of serious accidents and injuries that are directly related to people who become distracted from everyday activities and surroundings by text messaging. Some of the most common text-related injuries include bruises and concussions from bumping into lamp posts and household furniture, twisted ankles from falling off curbs -- which Valerie Jarrett, aid to Barack Obama, can attest to -- and whiplash from car accidents.

SpinVox issued the following guidelines to help consumers practice safe text:

1. Before texting, survey your surroundings. If there is a chance of something striking you, such as a ball near a basketball court, move to a safer location.

2. Never text while your body's in motion. Textin
