> DECtalk Express.
> CE Rating:
> The DECtalk Express does not pass the CE rating.
> We are working it and expect to pass by May.
> Battery Low Warning:
> We have received several calls wondering if the
> Express had some way of notifying end users that the battery is running low.
> The answer is yes! The command [:power interval DD] will let
> the user know, with beeps spaced at DD seconds intervals, if the battery is
> running low.
> International Power Supplies:
> An international power supply that works with the Express has been located.
> The supplier is:
> Condor Electronics, Inc.
> 580 Weddell Dr.
> Synnyvale, CA 94089.
> Tel: (408) 745-7141.
> Fax: (408) 745- 0439.
> Part No. WP05120I-206IP-12MM.
> PCMCIA and Card Wizard:
> The Express will not work with some older PCMCIA card and socket service
> drivers provided with notebooks or with PCMCIA options. We have found
> that the drivers provided with the System Soft Card Wizard Pro utilities
> resolves the problem. It is available from PCs Compleat, (800) 642-4532
> for $65.00.
> Everything you ever wanted to know about the DECtalk products, resellers,
> accessories, tips and tricks can now be found on the World Wide Web. It is
> located at:
> It can also be found via Yahoo using the key word `DECtalk'. Take a look!
> DECtalk PC:
> There is a new BETA version of the DECtalk PC being tested, 4.2C. This new
> version has the same functionality as 4.2B, but has been compiled and
> released under a new development environment. You will need this new
> version to upgrade to any of our future languages such as Spanish, French
> or German. Once it is released it will be placed on the BBS under
> the file name V42C.EXE.
> Many of you know there have been conflicts with some EIDE CDROM
> devices and the DECtalk PC. This has been fixed. A file called HOLD2F.SYS
> has been created that must be added to CONFIG.SYS to reserve a software
> interrupt for DECtalk. The file HOLD2F.SYS is on the BBS.
> This solution also works with the Express. Follow the same procedures as for
> the PC, but also add the line:
> dt_driv -r
> to your DTEXP.BAT file.
