You will have to get sighted assistence to install talks, as it doesn't
talk you through the install.

Subject: [bct] having trouble installing talks on nokia 6620

Hello, all. I really hate to be writing to the list about this again,
I've read all the documentation I can find, and I'm pretty sure I've
everything right. I finally got Nokia PC suite installed for the 6620,
after attempting to use it, I sincerely hope that I will be able to 
continue using my 6600 phone; either that or if my phone is declared 
unuseable, I'm pretty sure I will try to find another 6600 to replace it

rather than getting a newer phone that uses this new version of PC
Unless I'm missing something, which is entirely possible, this newer PC 
suite isn't at all screen reader friendly.
However, so far as I know, that isn't the problem. I'm reasonably
that both the tts engine and talks program were transfered to the
memory card; I found a message on the PC screen indicating that I would 
need to complete the installation from the phone's handset. I assumed
this simply meant restarting the phone, but so far, the phone hasn't 
uttered a word. Is there a step I'm missing? Am I going to need to try
track down sighted assistance to finish the installation? No matter
what, I 
have to get the phone to the person who purchased it tomorrow so that
can begin using it; i just want to know what I may have done wrong or
additional steps need to be taken to make the phone start talking. My 
co-worker will be purchasing the full license version of talks as soon
she can afford it, and is fully aware of the 10 minute limitation on the

version I have hopefully installed for her. Thanks for any help you can 
provide in this matter, and I hope that you all are having a really
