Changes to the list of supported phones

There are no changes to the list of supported phones in the version. It already resolves some issues with the support for the Belle FP1 firmware (which is used, for example, in the Nokia 808 PureView), but we are continuing to look at some remaining compatibility problems.
The Belle FP2 firmware update (only available for recent touch-only models, such as the Nokia 701 and 808 PureView) is not yet supported, and upgrading the firmware should be avoided because it will render some parts of the system, such as the keyboard, inaccessible.

What’s New

New version of Vocalizer:

  1. Vocalizer 5.60.1: this version includes the latest updates from ongoing Vocalizer product development, with various improvements across several languages as voices.

New features:

  1. On recent 3rd Edition FP2 phones, emoticons (smileys) in text messages and the symbol table are now read.
  2. Improved automatic reading of “call waiting” screen (if TALKS is not muted permanently during call). In most situations, an incoming call should not be announced without the need to press any additional keys.
  3. Last spoken phrase can be copied to clipboard using [Talks],[long 8]. This copies the phrase “as spoken”, so that the names of some punctuation characters may be included as words in addition to the characters themselves, depending on the punctuation setting. As a confirmation, the phrase is spoken again.

Browser improvements: 

  1. Combo boxes can be opened using [Select] in browser 7.3/7.4.
  2. Now supports text input fields using new HTML5-style field types. The increasing use of this new type of control was the reason why text fields on some popular pages stopped working with TALKS lately.
  3. "Reset" buttons in forms are now displayed as well.
  4. Now also supports "This page" links that go to an object identified by an ID attribute rather than its anchor name.
  5. Improved word-wrapping in virtual buffer for long text sections on web pages, especially in non-Latin scripts, to avoid cutting off sentence ends.
  6. Added support for BUTTON element in HTML
  7. Fixed repeating of "Text area" when typing in browser 7.3
  8. Clickable images outside of links with no alt/title text are now supported.
