Hi, have they made sure the volume is all the way up and do they get any of
the sounds that are included in talk back when it is turned on.

As for the device running that version of android if it is a touch screen
phone it will be impossible for them to use.  If it comes with a keyboard
they will be able to use it, but not a touch screen ply device.

a friend of mine recently bought a samsong galaxy gts5830m. running android
version 2.3.6. and although the phone has talkback, there seem to be no tts
engines instaled. is this normal? another funny thing is that they can't
seem to connect the phone to their wifi. how can they address the tts issue
in lu of wifi?

I believe in order to use other languages you may need to change the
language the device uses before you can dictate in that specific language.

However I do not know if there is a tts included for each one of the other
languages android supports  so you may want to research that before changing
the language on your phone.

Good morning.

Is there any people on this list that makes use of the voice input on an
android?

I love it, but I can only talk English to my phone.  I would like to know if
there is people that can talk other languages like Dutch,  or Flemish?

For those of you that don't know about it, it is what I use if I don't want
to type a message out on my phone, so I just tap on voice input, and then I
talk with the phone, and it converts my voice into text.

Most of the time it is accurate.

My aim is to be able to talk Afrikaans to my phone.

On my PC I have one of the Flemish voices, and it does Afrikaans very well.

I must now just go and have a look for a voice that will work nice on my
phone.

I have the Accapella voices, and will go and have a look there.
