We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
Hello everyone, I wonder if anyone can help me?
I have MND and can't speak, but would love to be able to use my phone by connecting it to my PC and using a text-speech software package to provide the outgoing voice (my hearing is fine so perhaps a headset to listen to the other end?).
I have tried switching the phone to 'speakerphone' mode and placing it near the PC's speaker but this degrades the speeach quality considerably.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
John, Many thanks for the link. Sorry, I should have made my problem clearer.
I already have Natural Reader 14 loaded on the PC and a selection of English male voices to perform the text-to-speech function. Where I am floundering is what interface hardware do I need to connect the PC to the phone (or socket) and how to connect the headset (without microphone or with it disabled)?
I have found examples of setups to record calls, but not one to inject voice from the PC into the phone line. VOIP may offer a solution but that seems to require a new telephone number. I would rather keep the number I have. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
no you can port a BT number to a VOIP service I will try and research hardware for you it may take me a few days but I have a friend with a similar disability and I am sure he may have the hardware you are looking for
