Hi Steve
>Just to inform you that both Mobile Speak and Talks also do Braille,

right ok but would it work with Pacmate?
Some background to my problem:
I am using a Versa  Braille as a Braille textphone. However, this kit is
more than 20 years old and is  on its last feet!

Blazie Engineering say that depending on the reason for a repair, it is
now very  likely that if the kit fails, that's it, finished!
They did &2 years ago) suggest Pacmate  as the replacement.
But then said there are problems with Pacmate connecting to the telephone
system in UK First they said grade 2 Braille wasn't supported, and when I
pointed out that  didn't matter they then  said there are other technical
problems  but didn't say what they are. 
I have since  turned to  Sight & Sound  and they seem more  helpful because
they have been discussing issues with BT's Textdirect  manager.
