Steve,
Do you provide the whole works like the echo dot and speaker? Or what
options would you suggest and at what price?. Can you also download books?
Not clearly the rnib talking books but again what options?.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Hi Dennis,

Disclaimer: It's a little bit more expensive from us than on Amazon, but
we'll fully support you getting it set up.

All the best

Steve

It's a speaker Dennis that looks like a radio, but has the Alexa service,
and Bluetooth to pair with your phone or other device.  It's fab!

Hi Steve

It is a pity that so many of these things don't come to fruition or fail
when RNIB get involved.

The E5 is a class act and my buddy at the moment over the tennis period.  I
highly recommend it!

Kind regards,

Hi Jackie,

Ironic that the E5 does almost as much <Smile>. All we need now is an
Overdrive skill for Alexa and you don't need RNIB In Your Pocket <Smile>.

Actually, on a more serious note, what RNIB really should have done is
create an app as well, so that anyone could have the use of its voice
control.

All the best

Steve

One of the many reasons not to buy it in my view, but that's just my
personal take on it.

Kind regards,

Have any of you on list purchased rnib in your pocket?.

Well, I have. I also agreed to beta test updates coming from the real thing
company in Australia.

However I am a bit stuck,

No updates have come for several months now. Also rnib should have taken
direct debits monthly.

I received a letter a couple of weeks ago saying they were going to take
three payments on 30th june. This also hasen't happened so I want to cancel
my device.

Customer services say no because its after 14 days and I haven't now got the
original box.

What a performance!!!

Kind regards,

Dennis disappointed huckle.
