Use your voice to log on to tax of­fice

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

THE Aus­tralian Tax Of­fice will of­fer peo­ple the choice to record a short “voice­print” that can be used to ver­ify their iden­tity for fu­ture calls.

A voice­print is a dig­i­tal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the sound, rhythm, phys­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and pat­terns in a voice.

“In the last fort­night, over 30,000 Aus­tralians have al­ready cho­sen to use our voice ver­i­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy,” Sec­ond Com­mis­sioner Ge­off Leeper said.

“For peo­ple who call us reg­u­larly, voice ver­i­fi­ca­tion will speed up the au­then­ti­ca­tion process and cut the time they need to spend on the phone to the ATO.”
