Dave: You're right, Jott and SpinVox both sound like pretty much the thing i was wishing for. Thanks for the pointers. I only see two things missing from my Dream: 1) you can't customize the speech recognizer (i assume), so performance may be a bit generic, and there's no way to improve it 2) the limited acoustic bandwidth of cell phone s will probably also contribute to poorer-than-state-of-the-art performance (but maybe still good enough?) The convenience and ubiquity of cell phones might make up for these limitations, though.

Looks like a neat product (i guess Google thought so too!), and automatic production of an MP3 gets me halfway there. Now they just need to mail that MP3 to a transcription service (which is customized for my voice), and then email me the result ...

Sean, check out It's like email forwarding for phone numbers. But, it's got fantastic voicemail: you can call your #, leave a message, and it'll be stored as MP3 in your inbox. That might be a nice hack to get what you're looking for.

Cool! I want one.... I really want one. When Windows 3 came out and everyone was enthusing about GUIs I wrote to a Computer mag to the effect that a really user friendly PC would take voice dictation. When computing, which for many users is primarily still about text entry and editing, can be done in the bath, or [insert the place you THINK but is difficult to use a current word processing device], then the PC will have become really useful!
