Telephone & Web = WOW !! – April 21, 2008

The power of the Internet and the web lies in its ability to provide access to information. The mobile web takes this one step further with its ability to provide information relevant to a specific location. Although the promise of this marriage is mind boggling, computer and smart-phone keyboards have slowed the adoption and widespread use of these technologies. Well, things are changing fast.
Over the last year, interactive voice and speech technology has advanced so fast that it is now very easy to interface with the web through your voice. Coupling this advancement with the widespread adoption of web services and the explosive growth of data capable phones and networks has resulted in free services that are simply amazing !!
Take the coupling of Jott and Mentat. Jott not only gives you the ability to send emails and text messages using only your voice, but through the use of web services it gives you the ability to work interactively with Mentat, a very capable life management application. This is not the only available service, but anyone can sign up and start leveraging this capability for free !! (And I’m not talking about a 3 month trial here).
This is just the beginning. Just wait until you combine this with your personal and business social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook !!

Jott is a free a voice to text service that makes staying organized and in touch easy. Jott allows consumers to easily and safely send emails and text messages, set reminders, organize lists, and post to web services with their voice. Since its introduction in late 2006, Jott has made world class voice transcription accessible to anyone with a cell phone.
Mentat is a free project-sharing service that can be used via a browser or supported device to track tasks and projects for yourself and in conjunction with other people in your network.
Individuals can use it for keeping track of personal items, like groceries, videos, errands, etc. Invite a household member or a friend and suddenly you have a group list that anyone can update, any time, or place. Companies can use Mentat for internal projects and customer relations (like bug tracking, for instance). Mentat also lets each user combine all of their shared projects into a single view, making a unique mashup of work projects and your own personal shared and private projects.
