Well Tong, I am now officially voice empowered via the mike and 'talke to me' 10 min training program. But USE the thing? No way. I continue to curse Toshiba for their lack of manual or info as to how to use the various NEW TO MANY BUYERS features of their machine. My 9 yr old Sony VIAO came with excellent manual. 3 yr old Gateway soso. The voice training readback is all about how fine their new voice technology is, yet no info as how to really access and use it. Their tech folks, all of which are familiar with the machine, bypass those new to its magic speech kingdom. Having been with computers since the pre- Apple IIe days, I M not exactly a newby.
