There were 11 questions found in this category:

  1. questionHow can I (or a sighted person) use the touch screen without uninstalling or stopping MSP?
    MSP has a Stylus Mode that will enable anyone to use the touch screen normally, as though MSP was not installed. Speech output will still be available. Press Ctrl+Shift+Alt in that order to toggle Stylus Mode on/off. If the device has a built-in QWERTY keyboard, you can also press and hold the W ...
  2. questionHow can I input text on my Pocket PC device?
    Mobile Speak Pocket comes with its own input methods for the user to enter text. Use LongTap1 to activate the default MSP input panel which is the Keyboard Simulator. Note that pressing Ctrl+LongTap1 will change the default input panel to the other one available with MSP called the Touch Virtual ...
  3. questionHow do I activate the softkey functions on a Pocket PC powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 or a later version?
    Most of the latest WM devices have hardware keys that are specifically used to activate softkeys. On Pocket PC phones running on Windows MObile 5.0 or a later version, they are usually located above or right beside the Dial and Hang-up keys. But such keys are not available on some PDA-only devic ...
  4. questionHow do I insert a space, press Enter to start a new line, or press Backspace to delete the previous character using either of the two MSP input panels?
    In all the keyboard types (Lowercase, Uppercase, Numeric, and Symbols) of the Touch Virtual Keyboard, the Space key is located in the lower-left corner, the Enter key is in the lower-right corner, and the Backspace key is in the upper-right corner of the screen in left-handed landscape orientati ...
  5. questionMy device is not connecting to ActiveSync. Why?
    Most cases of ActiveSync 4.x USB connection problems are caused by Windows desktop firewall applications or applications that manipulate network traffic. These applications conflict with the TCP traffic between your device and the PC, causing data transfer and connection issues. Please check th ...
  6. questionPressing DoubleTap3 does not open the application menu on my WM5 device. Why?
    DoubleTap3 is the command to activate or move focus to the menu bar in the current window. If this menu bar is not available, then the command will not do anything. In Windows Mobile versions before 5.0, menu options are accessed through the menu bar visible near the bottom of the screen, and so ...
  7. questionSome of the hardware keys MSP assigns to Tab, Alt, Control and Shift are programmed to launch certain applications. How can I use these buttons without uninstalling or stopping MSP?
    MSP has a Key Bypass Mode. Press Alt+DoubleTap4 to activate it. After this command is issued, the next hardware key you press will perform its assigned non-MSP function, and then the Key Bypass Mode will automatically be deactivated.
  8. questionWhat is ActiveSync?
    ActiveSync is the program that allows you to synchronize data and information between your desktop computer and your Windows Mobile device. Mobile Speak Pocket and Mobile Speak Smartphone are installed on your device from your PC by using ActiveSync. More information about ActiveSync can be foun ...
  9. questionWhat is the difference between a Pocket PC phone and a Windows Mobile SmartPhone?
    Please refer to this page for a description of these differences.
  10. questionWhen I close or exit an application window, is the application unloaded from memory or is it still running in the background?
    If you use the Close command (DoubleTap4), the window is only minimized and the associated application is still running in the background. Therefore, when you open the Switch Application dialog (Ctrl+DoubleTap1), that application will be in the list of running programs that you can move focus to ...
  11. questionWhen I run the Remote Screen Alignment application, I get this message: "Error Starting Program. A required .DLL file, MFC42U.DLL, was not found."
    The Remote Screen Alignment application does not work yet on Windows 9.x and ME machines that use ANSI instead of Unicode for the character set. It is strongly recommended that you use a computer running Windows XP or 2000.
