Re: Sight impaired amateurs

Can you give a basic overview on how to create language files or, at least a list of what you need as well as an input format? If so, I might be able to work with people and get a reasonably edited language file for some of the English variants. If we can work on language files it'll help free up a ...

Re: Sight impaired amateurs

I just updated the radio and the voice pack and things are working. In regards to the speed: I used the website and you might want to generate the prompts with fast instead of normal. its not that much faster and it seems to flow a lot better. if you have some sort of script your using and you can i...

Re: Sight impaired amateurs

The problem is when you load the utility focus isn't being set in the window, and you have to click the mouse in the window. once you click the mouse to set focus, things work as expected. Ian You mean in the firmware loader, the Radio Button selection. We originally could detect the radio but unfor...

Re: Sight impaired amateurs

Oh. I see how this works now. I was thinking it worked like excel. But it makes the hole thing accessible via tab.
Thanks for that.

Re: Sight impaired amateurs

I'll order a radio and start playing with this.
Would it be possible for you to post a step by step guide of what buttons to press? which one is green. top left? top right? is the keypad layout on this radio similar to the other radios like the md380?

Right now, the choices we have for DMR radios are quite limited. We can use the GD77S which only reads the channel and zone number. The other radio we can u...
