[optacon-l] Re: Got My Optacon Back this Afternoon!

Yea, Nick! Mine came back too, this evening at about six, when my son and 
family were here for supper. I got this one without the battery, and it has 
a different cord, Braille on it, A C only, Optacon. Richard told me that I 
could not use the charger I had on my other Optacon for this one. I was so 
glad to get it back, took my husband's old 1940, paper back hymn book, 
randomly got "Just as I Am". I can certainly share your joy in having yours 
back and will be glad for you to get the other one back up and running!

In God We Trust,

Carolyn

I'm on cloud 9!  I haven't had access to my 2 optacons, the one that was
mine, and the one which belonged to my Angel-Bride Margie for several years
and haven't been able to afford to get them repaired since my first of 4
lay-offs since 11/03/08.  Suffice it to say I feel more competent and
confident now Richard Oehm has done his miracles on my Optacon, and I'm
sending the Optacon which was Margie's tomorrow, as I like redundancy.  I
can't wait to try to read the PBX display and other things like the Savin
Copier display at work!


I prefer scanning for voluminous reading, but love the quick ability to get
specific data off of bills, reports Etc., once you're  familiar with their
format, using the Optacon.  I also love having an exact understanding of the
format of documents, as recomposition is one of the more difficult problems
for OCR technology to crack, and that's necessarily so for those of us
needing to approach a document with speech output or braille, but my brain
and hand allow resolution of format related problems when interacting
directly with documents, graphical data, and for Margie staved musical
notation and hand-writing.  It was also great for me for schematics and
other graphical data.
