This is the only information we have about this.
Subject: CCB-L Fw:      Field Testers needed! APH Bank Account =
Management

Software

=20

=20

  Hello from American Printing House for the Blind!

  Please pass along this message to others who might be interested.

=20

  Money Talks is an accessible, bank account management software package

  now

  available for field testing. Web and e-mail addresses that you need in

  order to field test are at the bottom of this email.

=20

  Whether you work for a rehabilitation agency or in the schools, you =
are

  a

  savvy blind computer user or are just beginning to learn, you are

  experiencing vision loss or have had no vision changes for years, you

  are

  studying budgeting and money management in high school or are managing

  three bank accounts and two credit cards, you are knowledgeable in the

  blindness field or work in a senior center or other facility where

  people

  experience vision loss and low vision -- field testing this program =
may

  be

  for you!

=20

  Money Talks works without other computer access software; it has built

  in

  speech and reads everything that you need. You can also enlarge the =
font

  and use both voice and large print. You can turn off the built in =
speech

  and use your own screen reader if you prefer.

=20

  The final version of Money Talks will have good-sounding speech. WE

  weren't able to use the good speech in our field test versions. The =
beta

  speech is Microsoft; though it is pretty clear, many people find the

  voice

  unpleasant to hear. Remember that the final version will have really

  nice-sounding speech.

=20

  With Money Talks, you can do the following and more. You can record =
all

  details of bank transactions including categories and subcategories =
and

  memo information in the electronic check register. You can mark

  individual

  transactions as cleared in the register. If you can download qif =
format

  bank files from your bank's web site, you can import them into Money

  Talks

  and reconcile them with your check register. You can read cleared and

  total balances at any time. You can edit transactions to correct =
errors,

  set up recurring transactions, add categories and subcategories, and

  pull

  up a previously-used payee name by typing the first few letters. You =
can

  examine totals and specific transactions in any of the categories and

  subcategories. You can tell the program to check for program updates; =
if

  you are connected to the internet, it will tell you if there is a new

  version and ask if you want to download it. The program will print or

  braille emboss check registers, (not yet implemented). It will also

  allow

  you to use your computer and printer to write three types of checks:

  Quicken 3-to-a-page checks; business-sized checks; and raised-line,

  large-print checks (the last two types available for purchase in

  checkbooks from most banks). Check printing is not fully implemented

  yet,

  but will be very soon.

=20

  To field test, you must make a commitment to:

  download and use Money Talks;

  join our Money Talks field testing e-mail list;

  share any questions, problems, or suggestions about any aspect of the

  program or documentation on the e-mail list;

  do not discuss Money Talks outside of the e-mail list;

  download and use new field test versions of the program as it is =
posted

 --

  you can ask Money Talks to check for updates and download and install

  them

  very easily.

  Technical support will be provided on the e-mail list only, not by

  phone.

=20

  We will give final versions of the software to up to 20 field testers

  who

  have offered significantly helpful suggestions.

  Everyone will receive the satisfaction of learning a new program and

  participating in its development.

=20

  We will post frequent updates to the program based on bugs that you

  find,

  suggestions that you make, and implementation of a few features that

  aren't quite finished yet. Please join us in working with this =
exciting

  program. E-mail me privately with any questions you may have about =
field

  testing.

=20

  To field test,

  go to

www.aph.org/beta

  and follow the directions.

  Here is what you will do as you follow the directions:

  read the general license information and click yes.

  On the next screen, click the link for Money Talks. On the next =
screen,

  click the download link.
