[access-uk] Re: Cobolt's Voila talking label reader

Hi,
 
I have not used the ID Mate before, but with this one you actually have
to hold a pen over a specific area scanning from left to right.  There
is a groove in the label so that you can scan it properly - it isn't
like a bar code scanner on a till or anything.  As for stacking; can you
not use the edge of the tin to put the label on?  You could stick
celotape to the label and then stick it on the tin label, so you can use
the label again, I guess.
 
Andrew.

Hi Andrew,
 
I used to have an IDE Mate but found it quite tedious with my back
problem to stand over the table long enough to go through things.  I was
just wondering if I might find the Voila easlier.
 
You didn't answer my question about stacking tins with labels on the top
and I'm still not quite sure how you re-stick labels you've used before.
 
Any further info would be msot welcome.  Thanks.

        Hi,
         
        I actually have one of these items as I wanted to label some
tapes.  The issues I have found with it are as follows:
         
        1.  Only a limited number of labels (i.e, you have label 1 to
250, then that is it).
        2.  It is a bit of a fad to try and get the label reader working
on a stack of tapes/cds without upseting the rest.
         
        Other than that they are good readers and do what they say on
the tin.  Why they only supply you with the first fifty labels though is
a mystery as you will probably get through them quickly and want the
rest.
         
        There is a ID mate bar code scanner which uses memory cards and
works with any bar code, the disadvantage with this though is that you
would have to take the CD out of the rack in order to scan it.  It is
also much more expensive than the other scanner.
         
        Thanks.
        Andrew.

        Hi List, 
         
         
         I am blind, and need to label my           cds.   Cobolt,  have
a Voila talking label reader.  Has anyone , used this item?  I would be
most grateful of any feedback,and whether there are any similar audible
barcode readers on the market.
         
         
        Thank you.
