New players in the field

Looks like a couple more have joined in the human powered voicemail to text arena.

First comes Jott who started off as a notes transcription service has now moved onto voicemail. Price is $9.95 a month for 40 voicemails and 35 cents each additional.

The new kid on the block is Trapcall at $9.95 a month for 10 voicemails or $24.95 unlimited. Trapcall goes a bit further with their service and supports call recording and unmasking blocked callerID.

This is more evidence that software powered transcription is too premature for primetime. With the conomy the way it is, it'll be cheaper to have humans do the work that computers used to do!
