Helpful Hints for the HTC® Ozone™ with TALKS

  1. Using number commands: If you’re using the HTC Ozone and selecting a command that includes a number, you’ll need to press the Function key after TALKS and before the appropriate number in order for the command to work.
  2. Choosing a Home screen: We recommend that you switch to the Windows Simple or Windows Default Home Screen layout in order to hear information off of the Home page. By using the HTC Home page, it will cause TALKS to run slow, and it won’t read the HTC Home screen layout.
  3. Sleep mode: Press the center key to wake the device from sleep mode.
  4. Device volume: If the volume on your phone is off or low, you won’t hear TALKS. Please check the volume on the left side and increase it to ensure TALKS can be heard. If your HTC Ozone is in Vibrate mode, it will shut off the TALKS audio. In order for TALKS to play the audio, remove the device from vibrate mode.
  5. Visual Voice Mail: You may want to mute the TALKS program when using Visual Voice Mail.

Installing TALKS Updates

When loading the TALKS software off of this page, the TALKS file will be transferred to your computer first and be found under your Programs list from your Start icon. In Programs, a Nuance icon will be created. After selecting the icon, you’ll see the following:
  1. How to Use
  2. Install TALKS
  3. TALKS Frequently Asked Questions
  4. TALKS Manual
  5. Uninstall TALKS
  6. What's New

Select the Install TALKS option and begin a new installation. You'll need to have the registration number during the installation process.

If you're updating your current TALKS to the most recent version, you don't need your registration number. Simply save the Nuance package to your computer and select the upgrade instructions to download the newest version of the software.

Quick Key Function Guide

Key

Description

[LeftSoft] The [Leftsoft] key function varies according to the label just above it. [LeftSoft] often enables you to confirm an action or option list. On the Home screen, [LeftSoft] opens the Start menu.
[RightSoft] The [RightSoft] key function varies according to the label just above it. [RightSoft] often enables you to cancel an action or open a menu of available options for the current element.
[Talk] Press this key to call a phone number that you have entered in the phone by speaking, using the keypad, or selecting a contact (currently displayed on the screen). If you don’t enter a number the [Talk] key opens a list or your recently called numbers and contacts, so that you can select one to call.
[End] Press this key to terminate a phone call that is in progress. This key can also be used to exit the current application or options screen. If a phone does not have a [Power] key, it's usually turned off by pressing and holding the [End] key.
[Home] The [Home] key brings you straight to the Home screen of your device. TALKS uses this key as the so-called [TALKS] key, that precedes another key to form a TALKS command. Press the [TALKS] key twice maintains the original [Home] key function.
[Back] Press this key to backspace in any text field. When a list of elements is displayed, you can often use this key to return to the previous screen.
[0], [1], ... [9] You can use these keys to enter a phone number in the phone app. In other apps, the numeric keys enable you to enter letters, digits, and punctuation marks. When in a numbered list, these keys can be used to select the corresponding option.
[*] (Asterik) Press this key to enter a star in the phone app. For instance, you can enter #06# to display the IMEI number of a given phone. In text fields, you can use [*] to cycle through input types (upper or lower case, numbers or T9 on or off).
[#] (Number Sign) In a text field, this key can be used to enter a space. It is also required for entering special commands.
[Up]
[Down]
[Left]
[Right]
Navigate through lists and grids by pressing the 5-way button upward, downward, to the left, or to the right. This guide refers to the four edges of the 5-way button as navigation keys. The navigation keys enable you to perform actions such as moving the cursor in a text field and scrolling through a list of grid.
[Enter] This refers to the center position of the 5-way button, that is used as the enter key that confirms a selected action, starts the selected app, or changes the currently focused option.


Miscellaneous Issues


Read and edit a Word® document in Word Mobile

  1. Go into Word's right-soft menu and select Edit. A cursor will appear in the document.
  2. You can then use TALKS to read your Word document aloud as you arrow through it (otherwise you'll just have a text window with no cursor).


Read long emails


By pressing TALKS + the Down button, the TALKS program will read a long email when the Windows focus is inside the body of the email.

To read a long email using TALKS:

  1. Open the email, and press the Down button three or four times in order ensure that the virtual speech cursor is in the main body of the email (rather than the heading area).
  2. Press TALKS + the Down button to read the email. TALKS will then read the body of the email screen by screen, auto-scrolling the email as it's reading.

To go over text in more detail:

  1. Press the Back button to stop the read out.
  2. You can then arrow around the text in detail.
  3. When you are ready, press TALKS + the Down button again to continue reading further.


Read email in Mobile Outlook®


By default, Mobile Outlook will only download part of your email. This is the Windows Mobile® default in order to save you data charges. This way, you can read the first part of the email before deciding whether to download the rest of it. However, you can set this setting to All in Mobile Outlook so that the whole message is downloaded by default.
