Jott

Seattle based Jott offers a novel and convenient service that lets users speak messages; those can be sent to themselves or others as transcribed emails or voice messages.

Jott has also begun to offer a new service called Jott links. Jott Links are Web pages that receive HTTP posts and write out a text response. They are called Jott Links because they are used to “link” Jott with other services, such as blogging and social networking sites. Jaiku, Blogger, Twitter, Zillow, tumblr, and Amazon.com are some of the Jott Links available. For example, you can call Jott, say the name of the link (“Twitter!”), speak out loud your blog post, and have the message sent to Twitter. Jott can also read back any responses and send them to you via email or text message.

Companies offering similar services include SpinVox and SimulScribe.

Launch DateJuly 10, 2008

Self-dubbed “the notepad you’ve always dreamed of,” the Jott iPhone app records your voice and turns it into text. You can add items to specific lists and cross them off once you don’t need to worry about them any longer. Additionally, all of your notes are backed up online.
