This small recording disc can hold up to sixty different messages, each one having a maximum length of twelve seconds. Thankfully, all those recordings are separated into four folders, numbered 1 through 4. That way, it's easy to keep things organized. You might use Folder 1 for a phone book, Folder 2 for appointments, Folder 3 for to-do lists, and the fourth for notes and memos. Then, when it's time to call Henry, simply select Folder 1, hit Talk, and say Henry. The UFO will immediately speak his phone number to you! Sophisticated, yes. Complicated, absolutely not!
Before we go any further, every feature of this unit is spoken aloud. There isn't even a display screen on the UFO - all you need to do is listen to the pleasant female voice. When you turn it on, she will remember which folder you were in last, and remind you so you don't forget. The two buttons on the right are used to select different folders and scroll through the messages in that folder. The buttons on the left are Record and Power. And the large circular button is Talk.
To use, first hold down the Power button until the UFO says "Folder 1" for example. Press Record, and give your message a subject. "Jill's Phone Number." "Shopping List." "Doctor's Appointment." She may ask you for the subject twice, just to make sure she heard it correctly. Then, when prompted, speak the information and hit the Talk button. "Completed," is immediately heard. Your memo has now been saved, and can be retrieved simply by speaking its subject.
Because of the multiple folders, this tiny voice memo can be several things at once, ranging from a Voice Phone Book to a palm-sized organizer. Speaker dependent recognition provides the best accuracy, so it almost never makes a mistake finding the right memo for you. Finally, it's easy to add and delete subjects by following the voice prompts.
Impress your friends with this One-of-a-kind, Inexpensive, High-tech item, and stay organized at the same time. Measuring less than two inches in diameter, it's ultra compact and easy to carry around. It sure is a good thing this talking recorder comes complete with a spring-loaded keychain, because you'll never want to be caught without it again. Takes 3 AG13 button-cell batteries, which are installed and ready to go.
Measures about 2 in. by 3/4 in.
Package Weight: about 2.1 ounces.
Directions for the Talking UFO Recorder From Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.
Hold the circular memo book in your hand, with the large button facing up and the keychain facing towards you. The keychain comes out of the device at the 6 o'clock position.
You will find four buttons on the edge of the device. The button at the 12 o'clock position is Folder, the 2 o'clock button is Play, the 8 o'clock button is Record, and the 9 o'clock button is Power.
First, hold down Power for one second to turn on the recorder. The number of the current folder is announced.
Press Folder to select the desired folder. This is the folder where recordings will be recorded and played back from.
To record a memo, press Record. State the subject of the recording, such as "Jonathan." If you are asked to state the subject again, repeat "Jonathan." When the unit asks for the message content, speak the information you wish to record, such as "555-4312" for Jonathan's phone number. When you are finished, press Talk to save.
To find a recording in the current folder, press the Talk button. Just say a subject you've recorded, such as "Jonathan." Jonathan," the unit responds, then plays back the phone number you recorded.
To scroll through the recordings in the current folder, simply press the Play button. Every time you press Play, a new recording is selected and played.
On the underside of the unit, at the three o'clock position near the outer edge, is the tiny Delete button. When you press Delete, the unit speaks the selected subject, then prompts if you wish to delete it. To confirm, press and hold Delete for three seconds, and the unit responds "Deleted."
After being inactive for fifteen seconds, the unit automatically powers off. You can turn the device off yourself by holding down the Power button for a second.
Changing Batteries. The battery compartment is accessed from the rear of the unit. Using a large flat-head screw driver, a butter-knife or your fingernails, rotate the battery door until it pops up from the unit. The recorder takes three AG13 button-cell batteries. Remove the old batteries and place the new ones into the cavities, with the flat side facing up. Replace the circular battery door, and press while rotating until it locks into place.
