Hi Monty,

Everything is working ok.

I have a Nokia N70, firmware version 5.0609.2.0.1.

I use Talks version 3.0.5 (and also with version 2.5).

Currently I'm running LoadStone version 0.58.

I got a G-Space GS-R238 GPS reciever.

Onderwerp: [Loadstone] Exploration mode commands do not speak

Hello all,

We have recently been made aware that on certain phones for some unclear
reason Exploration mode commands are not functioning as expected.

As an example, if you enter Exploration mode and attempt to move the
Exploration mode focus to the next point to the East (by pressing 6)
,Loadstone should print the resulting point on the screen and in turn will
speak the resulting point via your phone's screen reader.

What seams to be happening with some people is the resulting point is being
displayed on the screen but the screen  reader is not speaking the result.

At this point we are slightly baffled as to why this is happening.  We will
however track this problem down with your help.

We need to hear from as many people as possible whether it is working for
you or not.  If people could please post a message to the list including
their experience that would be very much appreciated and will assist us in
rectifying the problem.

If you could please let us know the following:

1.  Are you able to receive feedback from your screen reader while moving
around in Exploration mode (using keys 1 through 9)

2.  What screen reader and version are you using?

3.  What make and model of phone are you using?  (The firmware version would
be useful to know as well)  To find out your Nokia phone's firmware version,
type: star number sign zero zero zero zero and number sign. 
(Number sign = hash)

4.  Are you using Loadstone in conjunction with a GPS receiver?  If so, what
make and model are you using?

Again, even if this is working fine for you if you could let us know that
would be very useful!  That way we can rule in or out potential causes!

We will try and fix this as soon as possible as we can imagine it must be
quite annoying though it works fine on each of the Developer's phones -
granted none of which are running the latest screen readers or are new
