Use your voice to log on to tax office
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.”
