[access-uk] Re: query for those listers who are customers of Wiltshire Farm Foods

There is no question Alex and others that I believe non-computer users
should have readily available info re. what's on offer and prices.  Trouble
is these things dam well change so often.  I'd imagine the list is quite
long in its entirety so I would guess that more than one conventional Cd
would be necessary for something like this.

If anyone were to commit themselves to continually updating such rapidly
changing stock and prices then at the very least human-like synthetic speech
would have to be resorted to in order to keep up with the sheer volume and
changing nature of food stores stock.

I think if large print, or larger print were added to the available formats
and the whole thing mailed as a single package, whatever your preferences,
then that, as far as I can see would be about as fur as it could go, as the
old Oklahoma song used to say.

Still, I ask myself, can you really see this happening?  Well, yes it could,
but quite honestly I don't see this level of instantanious rapidly updatable
access coming without internet assistance and, until we get to the stage
where everyone has something like an internet cd/ radio for the masses that
isn't as complex as a computer to operate, then I cannot honestly see Farm
Foods, or anyone else, doing in a long term sustained way what you want.

So, ask, press campaignby all means, but I think you will have to dream on.

Hello Alexander,

Wiltshire Farm Foods sends out two printed items: a brochure and a price
list.

The brochure lists products by menu category, product name, product number
and product description.  It also has pictures of the food.

The price list contains product name, product number and price (I don't
know whether the menu category is in there).

So, if your CD includes prices, then it is a version of the price list
rather than the brochure.  If the prices are not there, then I am not too
impressed!

Hope this helps.

Christopher
