Service: Leave yourself a (text) message with Jott

Jott Screen ShotThis interesting new service passed through my RSS feeds today. I make a point to check out anything that might be moderately useful or even just interesting.

Jott allows you to call a phone number and speak up to 15 seconds of any message you like. This message is then transcribed and emailed to you. My initial test worked well, with 100% recognition of a 10-12 word sentence. I sometimes make audio notes to myself using my phone, but I think this would be a bit more useful, as I can easily cut and paste the message into a to-do item when I get home, instead of typing it in myself.

Will the wonders of the Internet ever cease? I certainly hope not!

Leave yourself a (text) message with Jott

Want to send yourself a note? A reminder? An idea? Just pick up your cell phone and dial Jott. The service not only forwards recorded messages to you via e-mail, it also transcribes them into text.

When I was looking for a service like this I was very concerned with accuracy and range of ways to use the service. I found a service by a company called spinvox www.spinvox.com . They do all kinds of voice to text applications. From speaking a note to speaking a blog. Thought I'd pass the info on. Hope it helps.
