[access-uk] Re: Headset replacement

Hi Jackie,

I would indeed like to know the make and model, plus where to purchase
if possible please.

If it is possible to plug in a third item, then so much the better.

Cheers

Hi Dave

My box of tricks is quite nice, and I believe it came from Hagger UK.
It comprises a box with one switch on the top.  I can listen to JAWS in
one ear and the telephone call in the other, or have JAWS or the
telephone call in both ears.  The box has individual volume controls on
the front.  I don't know if I could plug in a third item, I've never
tried.  The headset though has a microphone on it, and the over-the-head
band and muffs are very comfortable to wear.

I would need to ask someone what the make and model of these items are
if you are interested further.

Hi All,

Well my old VXI Talkpro Express, has finally given up the ghost, and
gone to a land fill site no doubt.

So time to choose another.

What to replace them with, question.

Well, what I would really like is a set of headphones, with which I can
switch between PC and telephone, plus PC and Daisy player., am I asking
too much?

It would be nice to have a simple box, with which to switch between
these two settings.

I currently have a pair of Bose noise reduction headphones, which are
very comfortable, but are lacking an attached microphone.
If these had a microphone, all I would need is a box of tricks that with
a flick of a switch, allows me to hear the PC/JAWS, in one ear, and
either the telephone or daisy player in the other, and the microphone to
work with both as I have Dragon Naturally Speaking/J-Say, and a Plextalk
PTR2 daisy player, which I can record on.

Anyone know of such a setup, commercially available?

If not, I would also like to hear any recommendations, as to the best
headsets currently available.

Cheers

Dave Ankers
