[access-uk] Re: More on KNFB reader for phones

Andy,

I must confess I have downloaded the file, but haven't waded through the crap to get to the nitty gritty yet (smile). It's on my ever-growing list of stuff to do (smile).

Me thinks I'll have to look for some destructions and see what's what. Wish I didn't love gadgets so much, but I do (smiles).

Jackie - What I understood from hearing the forum, was that if you were
using the reader, and a call/text came in, you could accept it, and then
return immediately to the reading, the reader remembers your place.

They actually made quite a bit out of the fact that the KNFB reader could be
used when TALKS isn't even on a phone, but, one still has to get to the
installed software in the first place,so, without TALKS, sighted help would be required to set up a hot key for it! So not sure really what their point
was really -

| Yes that's right Andy from what I understand too.  But I bet it won't be
| long before other mobiles supporting this type of flash with the Symbian
| operating system will be available to at least provide the end user with
| some choice. If what the software developers are saying is true, it would
| have to be future proof for a wider selection of phones.  They are
| supposedly chucking a lot of dosh at developing the software, and with
what
| they are charging for it, they must expect to be doing more with other
| phones or else it'll be defunct in no time.
|
| It's the K-NFB software that I think is extortionate, not the phone or
| TALKS. For me, the ability TALKS gives us to do what we can with a mobile | is worth every penny frankly. But while the K-NFB software is designed to
| be portably accessed, it is a lot of money, both over there and here.
|
| I'm really curious to see how the Reader and the phone compare as two
| different animals. What would happen, for example, if you were using the
| phone to read a document with the K-NFB software, and you got a text, or
| someone rang you.  Yes it's very interesting from a usability sense.
