While Governor Schwarzenegger’s move to ban non-hands-free cell phone use by adults in California makes sense from a safety perspective, there also needs to be a pragmatic solution for daily adult commuters. Throughout California, the U.S. and Canada, livelihoods require being in constant contact, particularly where commute times can reach up to 2 hours. Jott (www.Jott.com) provides an alternative solution that underscores the safety concerns addressed by the new cell phone “hands-free” law, while also supporting working professionals, volunteers and parents. Jott allows individuals to keep their hands on the wheel and focus on the road while emailing or text messaging using their voices.Users say who they want to Jott, then speak their message to an individual or group, and the message is automatically transcribed and delivered to the recipient via email and text message, along with an accompanying recording of the message.
People in California and elsewhere deserve the support of productivity tools, such as Jott, that enable them to traverse daily traffic–safely–while still getting their necessary work done. 1-866-JOTT123.
There are some valid scientific objections to these findings, and the debate is ongoing, but it’s pretty clear that it’s you should keep your eyes and your focus on the road. In a perfect world, we would all do this all the time.
But we don’t live in a perfect world, especially when it comes to business. If we don’t multitask, we run the risk of falling behind. Quality of life issues aside, this presents some serious challenges in the safety realm when we’re hurtling along the freeway from point A to point B.
Jott adds a lot of value in this arena. Rather than taking your hands off the wheel to send an e-mail on your Smartphone, you can simply choose to speed dial (or use voice-activated dialing) along with a Bluetooth headset to call Jott; then speak your message to send an e-mail and/or text message to one person or a group.
So in addition to being dangerous, text messaging using your thumbs while driving is now completely unnecessary because you can use Jott instead.
It’s official, starting 2008 in Washington state you will now pay a $101 ticket if caught with your hands on your cell phone.
For some of us though, the drive time is the best time to be productive on our phones. What to do? The solution is simple:
Get an earpiece or bluetooth headset for your phone.
Use Jott so you can still text message - hands free!
Jott automagically turns your voice into a text, so you don’t have to stare at your phone keys while driving and trying to text message at the same time. And if you don’t have a headset or earpiece, you may want to Jott yourself to remember to pick one up.
