Digital Transcription with Jott!

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Insurgent in the chat room was asking about Jott. Specifically, he wanted to know what it is, how to use it, and if there are any alternatives.

Jott is a digital transcription service, which basically means they take a voicemail that you send, transcribe it into text, and send it to a recipients e-mail address.

Using Jott is pretty simple: sign up for a free account, enter in some address book information (name, phone number, e-mail address), and then you can use the service! Just call Jott and say the name of the person you want to get in touch with. Once you say your message Jott will confirm it and ask if you want to send it now as a voicemail or have it transcribed as an e-mail.

As cool as the service is, it isn’t perfect. Automated voice to text systems can be tricky at times, and uncommon words – such as Ponzi – are usually not translated very well.

For the most part Jott is simple, fun, and functional. Oh yeah, it’s also free.

Do you have any digital transcription services to recommend?
