Jott Blogging

The previous post was a test of a service called Jott. The service (no charge during beta — like crack on the playground, the first taste is free) converts voice into text, and then delivers that text. The “voice” part comes from your cell phone. The text can be delivered to an individual via email or text message. It can also send it to your blog, as the example below shows, or to Twitter. And since both Twitter and my blog go to my Facebook page, my profound wisdom will wind up there as well.

I called Jott on my cell phone, and an automated voices asked “Who do you want to Jott?” I said “WordPress” (I’d filled out an online form with my URL and password). I spoke a few words, the voice said “Got it!”, and minutes later I had a blog post. Except for the Phil-fill issue, they got it right.

Of course, they make sure a link back to Jott appears on the post, so in addition to using me as a guinea pig, Jott gets free advertising out of the deal.

As a free service, this is a no-brainer, but eventually they’re going to have to figure out a way to make money. Will subscribers pay enough to make the company profitable? Will they be able to sell advertising? This will be interesting to watch.
