How To: Do You Want Your Android Phone To Talk To You?

Actually an Android smart phone doesn’t speak by default.

But there is an app that will read and speak what’s inside your phone,
if you select it to do so. And it is, Shouter.
Shouter is amazing. Shouter Pro has so much to offer in an Android app.

I especially enjoy the part where you can have a Shouter Widget on your screen.
The widget sits right there on your screen for easy disabling and enabling.
In other words, turn shouter on or off.

I put together some screenshots from my phone to help serve as a guide in case you would like to use them a reverence resource. (Check them out below)

It’s totally possible to take 30 minute’s out of the evening and tinker around with Shouter.
Have shouter tell you the time.
Shouter can set/read any reminders you have.
It can tell you if the battery is low.
And perhaps the best section, shouter can read the notifications from apps.
Like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and many more .

With shouter you can set your own text for reading SMS message’s.
Shouter will read custom text from incoming calls.

And in certain notification sounds set by the phone shouter works well right along side.

Shouter is safe from any un-wanted content (malware, spying, etc.) -but- if you would want to consider if shouter has a bit of a privacy issue, one could say shouter log’s all the incoming notifications. However, you can remove the logs and disable logging. Please keep in my logging is on by default, (default – set to on automatically).

By using the link to Shouter over at Google Play (here) you can learn more about the app,
and or install shouter. Provided your phone is connected to a computer.
You can also just install Shouter from Google Play Store that’s on the phone.
Installing it from there is the best way.

I believe its possible one could get annoyed with shouter after a long day.

One thing for sure, shouter is very useful when you’re driving home from work and the peeps are trying to reach you even though you just happen to be the safest driver on the road and don’t use the smart phone while driving. Hearing the content of the notification without thinking about picking up the phone you can relax and take the time to prepare one’s thought’s before engaging into a follow-up.

I’ve been using Shouter for almost two years now, and have never had any extreme issue’s with the app crashing. Once there was a bug. After an update shouter didn’t reconnect to the selected apps I had set. So I had to uncheck them all and redo. Then shouter updated from the Google Play Store to fix the bug. The current version in release is very stable and I suggest using the software. If you’re a work horse then shouter just might be the smart phone app you need for better office productivity.

There’s only one way to find out if shouter is for you.
Give it a try, if you don’t like having the phone talk to you, then just un-install it.

I rate Shouter with 5 Stars – Think Twitter and POTUS – Shouter is good for Working in the field, while in the Office, sitting at home, in the gym , and if you’re away just soaking up the ray’s. You might want to turn shouter off if you’re on the beach.

Shouter Master Control / Enable Shouter to control all your shouts.

By taping on each section is where you can set the many options shouter gives you. At the silent hours option you can choose the hours you want shouter to be silent. The notification section allows you to pick which apps you want shouter to read. Call, Message, and Time allows you to create a custom text, thus reading the custom text setting notifications.

Reading Apps
2018-04-14 05 29 14
Here’s where you select the apps you want shouter to read and shout, so your phone talks to you. Being able to hear my phone tell me what’s happening in real time is like a normal commodity now. If it suddenly disappeared I would be left wondering what happened.

Custom text for incoming message’s.
2018-04-14 05 29 29
Enable Shouter to read message’s
2018-04-14 05 29 32
Enable Shouter to read incoming phone calls.
The Shouter Widget
Shouter Logging

Here we can find the logging shouter can do and does by default. So if you don’t want shouter to log your apps notifications you’re gonna want to go to that section and disable logging. I have shouter saying, “please acknowledge. incoming data. displaying. The rest shouter handles.

If you have any questions I would be glad to answer them, provided I’m able to do so.
Please allow for a timely response.

How To Build Windows Software Without Any Coding Knowledge

Actually as you explore this program I’m going to tell you about, you will realize you will have to learn how to use and write computer code. But, this program has enough in it to help you along that road of learning how to build Windows software and coding.

I began using this program back in 2009. The one and only software program I built with it is, Wintrol 5.1.

Wintrol 5 Windows Control Panel Utility +
Wintrol 5 Windows Control Panel Utility +

I’m not here to tell you what Wintrol does, if you want to know about Wintrol you can visit the Wintrol page and download it from here.

I really do love this Windows software program builder.
Neosoftware really has something on the competition.

The NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7 isn’t free, it will set you back $149.00 (USD), there’s a free trial version if you just want to try it first.

With NeoBook Rapid Application Builder, “even inexperienced users can quickly combine combine text, pictures, sound, video, Flash animation, HTML content, Internet links, databases, special effects and other elements to create interactive, professional software programs.”

NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7

“Completed NeoBook projects can be compiled into a compact, self-contained Windows application (exe) or screen saver (scr) for easy distribution. No players, special drivers, licenses or additional software are required to view compiled applications. NeoBook created applications look and act just like real Windows programs, so no one need know that you didn’t toil for years learning Java or C++.”

The System Requirements for NeoBook are as follows:

Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit). A hard disk with 20 MB free space. Mouse or other Windows-supported pointing device. Windows-supported sound card (optional)

Apps created with NeoBook will run under:
Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit).

“NeoBook works with a series of plug-ins, the plug-ins are specially designed components that can be installed along with NeoBook to provide additional functions not found in the basic program. Properly designed plug-ins are extremely fast and their use virtually transparent. Once installed, plug-in functions appear in NeoBook’s Select an Action list along with the program’s native commands.”

Alexander of France is quoted saying, “I studied Neobook at school when I was 15 and then I bought it. Now I am 19 and I work every day on it and I earn money with Neobook. According to me, Neobook is more than a software, it is a DREAM, it is the best developing software over the world!”

All that talk from technology website’s and all the “How To Learn Computer Code”, how to’s out there have nothing on this program. NeoBook is where you want to start learning how to build computer software.

What Is Mouse Without Borders?

Well I can tell you what it’s not ;
It’s not a mouse that runs around the world healing other mice in war-torn nations.

Mouse without borders (MWB) is a little software program built by Microsoft so a computer user can have two computers running separately -but- with one mouse and one keyboard controlling both. Once you experience it, you’ll wonder how you got along without it for so long.

As far as I can tell this little -but- tuff program has been out since the early 2000’s, and its talked about very little since then. The program doesn’t appear to need any improvements and or bug fixes. Its perfect just as it is.

Here’s what it does: First you have to install it onto both computers at the same time.
(make sure you’re connected to the Internet)
-mouse without borders works with a smartphone’s hotspot connection as well-

Once installed follow the instructions, the last step you enter a security code and the computer name you want to share the keyboard and mouse with.
From your secondary computer close that window.
Now from the system tray find (MWB) right-click on it, choose setting’s, a window will pop up with the security code you need. From your main computer enter that code, if the computer name isn’t correct on each computer MWB will not connect.
Click apply, and close the window.
That’s it, you should now be able to move your mouse from one computer to the other, and share the clipboard between the two, plus share the keyboard.

The setup process isn’t really that hard. Just keep trying if you miss the connection the first time. I love this program.

Here’s how to get your copy of Mouse Without Borders.
Or try this direct download link.

Who Is Amerisphere Software Technologies

From the desk of Gary M. Smith:AST_Me3

Yup, it’s the real me.

I thought its time to introduce myself. I am Gary Michael Smith.
Creator of Amerisphere Software Technologies (this web site).
I’m all over the Internet.
You can find my public social media accounts at nearly all the top web companies the Internet has to offer (links are at the end of this introduction).

I began pounding on the keyboard in 1999. Since that time, the technological knowledge of a computer
still can elude me. Having the ability to upgrade and troubleshoot nearly any machine, there is always
that one, the one which can reset all of the knowledge as if it wasn’t there.

And believe you me, it recently happened.

Case in point – the “System Administrator” was highjacked on this machine.

If you have and or currently experiencing this behavior, the best fix for it, is to re-install the entire
”Operating System” (OS). I’ll be honest, I was disappointed in myself, I wasn’t able to repair the highjacked machine for the unfortunate recipient.

After much research and troubleshooting the consensus rendered resulted in no fix.
The new “OS” wasn’t present. Oh, well. Until the day is here.

I quickly recovered and moved on to access my brains memory banks to get back any lost information
from the reset action which had occurred.

-step forward-

You know I came up with the solution after all. A clean install of the “OS” will and always is the best fix.

In 1999 my attraction to know computers was all consuming. I couldn’t get enough.
I had to know how a .gif worked, I had to know what memory (RAM) was, I had to know what was inside
an internal hard drive (HDD). So, I busted one. Took it apart and was amazed to see the deep impression made on the platter (disk surface). After may hours of focusing my attention towards the mechanical device and reading, I was now familiar with the basics on how a hard drive functioned.

To prevent this article from becoming very lengthy, let’s take another -step forward-

In the web of the world, “free” became my direction. I needed free program’s (computer software) to optimize my computer and fix any potential problems that may be slowing down the hardware and any file confusion with-in the “OS”.

What it boils down to –is- free.
I’m running this web site for free. It is my intention to give a free service (selective service) to the Internet. All technology news worth providing, if you follow me on twitter your company may be endorsed for free, via twitter. Software updates are important at all times, if I know of them, I will inform you via twitter. But, please keep in mind, I’m away from the computer often and may not post for hours. I’m currently working on a fix for that.

So, anyway. Here are the other places you can find me:
