View Full Version : Grid 2 Software

1st August 2013, 08:36
I don't use Grid 2 and know very little about it but ...

Another branch member uses Grid 2 but when they open a pdf/acrobat document they cannot close it using Grid 2. They can open and close word documents but not Acrobat/pdf ones.

This sounds a simple problem to me but not being familiar with Grid 2 I don't know, can anyone suggest how to do this?

Hi Arthur;
Does he use Grid 2 for talking as well?

Yes, talking and surfing the web. I hope to see it in action and compare it to my Palmtop which I use as a last resort when "talking".

I feel like Robocop when I use my Palmtop and the computer generated voice trying to mimic a human booms out, they will be interesting to compare,

I have a genie wheelchair that stands up and moves around and looks like robocop. I have programmed in my talker, "dead or alive your coming with me". It must be our age group.
What is a palmtop and what software are you using.

Take a Dell Axim Palmtop computer costing around 300
Add a loudspeaker, amplifier, batteries and software
Then sell it for over 2,000

It has the advantage of size (150mm by 60mm). It runs it's own speech software called impact.

I have tried to include a picture of it above but this link may be easier http://mndani.com/images/Palmtop.jpg
