Whatever Happened to Jott?

What Was Jott?

The Voice-to-Text Revoluation

The Voice-to-Text Revoluation

About a decade ago, Jott emerged in the mobile voice-to-text space.  This technology is very revolutionary, and it is the product of years of research. Today, consumers almost take voice-to-text communication services for granted, but speech recognition was actually a big breakthrough. A few years ago, consumers may have been familiar with this brand. These days, not so much.

Jott Integrates with Nuance

However, Jott was integrated into Nuance, and the actual Jott services ended in 2011. Even though the company enjoyed success, they decided to continue as part of a broader set of services. The team did not really end, but it did merge.

Have you heard of Dragon products? If so, you have found what Jott evolved into eventually.


This is from an older press release:

 Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Jott.com
 helps make individuals more productive and efficient by instantly capturing
 ideas, sending messages to others, and more without use of a keypad.



The new company works with partners such as:

  • AT&T,
  • Rogers
  • Bell Canada,
  • Vodafone
  • Cisco,
  • Vonage
  • More

Jott merged into global markets, but individuals can still find similar services.
