Charles, I would like to prefer voice as output also. So I can use hands free for surfing and info gathering from net, while engaged with other jobs.

Cabe, it's a good idea. I think apart from that there have to be some provisions for audio search and retrieving the information from internet through audio mode. I mean instead of read, users have to able to listen the information in audio format.

The future of Internet access

I've often wondered if voice will eventually become the preferred input methodology for the Internet. As computing products shrink to a size that make keyboards too klunky, and as displays grow so small that they're hard to read, it would seem that voice would play a bigger and biger role in the future, even for the literate.

This is a great project, Cabe, thanks for covering it. What many of us take for granted is such a luxury to many people, and to bring the Internet to people who can't access could really open up a whole new world.

Good ;point, AnandY. This is a great service for the blind, and also for those who have trouble reading. It's easy to forget that the Internet is dominated by written language. While most commercial sites emphasize visuals, it is still essentially the written word that carries the info.

Cabe, thanks for the interesting post. Voices can be great help for the blind people. They can also have the access to internet without depending on others to read data from internet..

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions.

Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
