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

Jackie, so how do we get a licence to ring your bell?

As for the Voda shop being impressed.  What wouldthey reckon to the
price I swonder of the KNFB reader?  That they're in the wrong
business?

Cheers,

Paddy, I agree completely.  I reckon personally that TALKS has to be
the
best bit of kit I've used in a long long time.  I couldn't have half
the fun
I do with my circle of friends and family sending me jokes and laughs
without TALKS.  Every time my little bell rings with a text message, I
wonder who is going to make me laugh at something terrible or cheeky!

And that's without the serious things you can do with TALKS like the
contacts book, calendar, music player, Bluetooth ... and so it goes
on.
It's fab, and I've become a terrible mobile phone anorak because of it
now
(laughs).

I think the K-NFB software is very very expensive, both in terms of
being on
the original Reader and now on a cell phone, but, like you, I want to
see
what it can do on a handset.  Blimey the folk in our Vodafone shop
already
think it's amazing that we can do so much thanks to TALKS, so I'd love
to
see what they made of the K-NFB software on it too!
