Yap – Voice To Text Message Service – Available Soon

YapthreadThis one just seems a little backwards. Your already picking up the phone why not just call the person… I guess there must be something I am missing.  It seems like this is meant to avoid T9 but still.

Hayden caught wind of a interesting new service called Yap that lets you convert voice into text messages. It is set to launch soon according to TechCrunch and you can sign up for email alerts. There also seems to be a mobile application in the works but it looks to be Windows Mobile only.

I really am curious as to the business model they will build around this… Check it out at www.yapme.com

  1. I have been using YouMail to get my voice-mails sent to me as Text for about 3 months now, and really really like it. My wife was not convinced. Yesterday we fooling around… never mind. She left me a voicemail talking pretty fast, even leaving her phone number. 50 seconds later I got the e-mail with her transcribed message, and it was 80-90% correct. Even the number she spoke came out perfect. Plus the e-mail contains the .wav of her message, so I can always listen to it without using my minutes.

  2. @Nikolaus, appreciate your appreciation, especially since Yap also powers YouMail’s voicemail to text service:
