Have you ever been in your car or somewhere else, and had that great idea or thought you wanted to record but couldn’t write it down? Go set up a free account at jott.com. You register your cell phone number, and then you can leave a message with them. But it’s much better than voice mail, because they convert it to text and then email it to you!
Not only that, but they provide a link to the original audio just in case the voice is too quiet or unintelligible.
This does essentially what voice recorders and voice recognition software do, but for free!
