Learning how to use SpeakOn

SpeakOn CalcPad is not difficult to learn if you follow the suggestions below.

The user interface for SpeakOn applications, currently MediaSuite and CalcPad, is the same. You operate SpeakOn CalcPad as usual with the Desktop keys. The numerical keypad can be used as an alternative to enter numbers and arithmetic operators in the usual way; otherwise it has no special purpose, unlike in MediaSuite.

You may wish to keep this manual open while running SpeakOn for quick reference until you are comfortable using it. You can switch between SpeakOn and your internet browser in the usual Windows way [Alt + Tab].

'Installing and getting started with SpeakOn' section
