What youâ€™ll need:
Firstly, youâ€™ll need a Google Voice account. Then you have to download some python scripts to program the system correctly with a â€˜trigger word’ â€“ that way your system can pick voice messages and display them on the screen. You can set it to display all messages or just those of your choice. Youâ€™ll also need plenty of LEDs (of course), a soldering iron, and a 9v battery.

A Python script accesses your Google Voice account which finds the text version of you voicemail messages.Â Then, it downloads them to a text file on your system which then displays it on the LED board.
