Re: Voice synthesizer for blind and visual impaired person

I work at the Kansas School for the Blind. Portable computing devices for the visually impaired are extremely expensive, so seeing an affordable OpenMoko device that is blind-friendly would be great. Personally, I am interested in OpenMoko because I think using a phone for remote administration

I personally like the configuration of my synaptics touch pad. I have left, middle, and right clicks (1, 2, and 3 finger tapping, respectively), and I can also use the right and bottom edges for vertical and horizontal scrolling. However, keep in mind that touch *screens* are very different in

While FF does have a fairly large footprint, I've never had these kinds of memory consumption problems. I generally leave my FF sessions open for days or weeks at home, and I simultaneously load 3D games, OOo, graphics apps, and other stuff without ever having trouble with memory (granted I do

Does this mean we can solder one of these in and turn our moko into an enhanced Wii remote? :P ~Bradley [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: It was ~$14. Dirt cheap for what it does. If what people say about wasted space inside the neo is true then I'm hoping to cram one in there when I get my phone.

A possible solution for this has been discussed under an accessibility thread. The Maestro is a simple (yet effective) clip-on cover for PocketPCs. There are a few different versions of it, which work with various different brands and models of PocketPCs. Check out a picture at:

Since all of the communications of a cell phone are digital (nothing is analog between mic and speaker), encrypting the voice data stream should be rather trivial (at least is in my understanding of the universe), even if you have to resort to implementing a virtual mic device that emits an

You *could* do what many existing linux apps do... write the functional part of the app as a console program, and then use many simple GUIs as options to interface with it. Think about cdrecord and K3b as an example. For the handful of us out there that intend to use the Neo as a remote

How much juice does the display eat up when it's active? I assume it's a considerable amount. Could we have the ability to drop the phone into a minimalist mode, where all the fluff is disabled but bare-basic features continue to work? For example, kill the wifi, GPS, bluetooth, and even the
