Never Forget a To-Do Item

Have you ever been driving down the freeway and remember something that needs to be added to your to-do list? I have. Many times. Trying to jot down a memo at 70-plus miles per hour is not exactly safe.

Enter Jott.com. You call a special, toll-free number, dictate your to-do item, and hang-up. Jott then converts your voice message to text and sends you an e-mail. You can then process your e-mail as you normally would.

I have been very impressed with the accuracy of the transcription. Jott gets it right almost every time. Even if it doesn’t, it is close enough to jog my memory.

For example, I need to call the Yamaha piano store on Monday. So, I pressed my speed-dial key for Jott. When the system answered, I said, “Call Yamaha on Monday.” Sixty seconds later, I received an e-mail from Jott Networks that said, “Call Yamaha on Monday.” Perfect. It got every word right.

This is a simple but elegant way to insure that nothing falls between the cracks. If you think it, you can record it—and make sure it gets added to your inbox for later processing.

Best of all, it’s free. Give it a try.
