Q/ How do you send text messages?

A/ The same way I use my computer, with speech software. I use the braille dot on the number 5 to navigate around the keypad. You will find this on all cellphones, so check yours to see if it has one to. When I am sent a text my phone speaks out the words. For this reason words like "l8r" and "LOL" do not read very easily and as a result are hard to read so if you are texting me, its full old fashioned words please! I have the voice rate set as fast so most sighted people are unable to understand what the phone is saying. This is great because it makes the messages automatically private.
