[access-uk] Re: Active speech on Nokia's

Hi Barry,

By Active Speech, I assume you mean Voice Aid.  No, it is not that good.
You can view contacts for example, but you can't use it to review text
messages that you are composing, because it has no notion of what a cursor
is.

Tomtom is completely unusable by a blind person to my knowledge, even with
Talks.

All the best

Subject: [access-uk] Active speech on Nokia's

Hi all

I'm sorry that this question is rather none specific, but can anyone tell me
how good the active speech is on the newer Nokia mobiles or any other makes
for that matter.  Is it good enough for a totally blind person to use the
phone?  I've been told that the Nokia E61 is good, and it comes with Tom-Tom
that can be used on foot, but the recommendation came from a sighted friend
who cannot quite appreciate the finer details.

Thanks

Barry
