Hi Folks ,
I am new to this forum but desperately need help for my terminally ill friend who has gone deaf. I have arranged to blue tooth a mike to his I pad so his wife can talk to him by displaying text in real time but the software I have tried ( ios8 , ipad notes plus others ) all cuts out after a few seconds of in activity. Is there a way to stop this or some software that that stays on receice all the time as this is the only way my friend can make it practical to communicate with his wife .

Many Thanks in advance and a happy new yeay

Regards Hoverboy

Hi Hoverboy,

I'm afraid I can't help you with your question, but recommend that you ask over in the KnowBrainer forums @ http://www.knowbrainer.com/forums/forum/index.cfm

They specialise in surmounting physical disabilities through voice recognition!

Invest in a MacBook with the full MacOS- this will enable you to use the Dictation facility (comes free with the OS) if you have a good quality USB mike. Bluetooth is not much good for these things.

Heath Robinson says... Jan 5, 2016

I recently acquired a newer version of DNS Premium and it came with a natty little headset (double mini-jack plugs) which work fine. On my main PC, which I'm using just now, I kept getting the same problem with a USB headset because every little wobble of the cable made it cut out. I solved it Blue Peter style a couple of hours ago with a bit of strong masking tape to hold the USB plug in place... Not terribly aesthetically pleasing, but it does the job!

PS: I'm afraid I can't help with Bluetooth or anything Mac-ish...
