Aurora for Windows 2.02
This version of Aurora is no longer supported.
Aurora for Windows 2.02 is identical to version 2.01 except for the addition of all updates available on this WWW site.
New features in version 2.02 include:
Problem: Aurora Prediction and Echo do not work with ICQ 2000 beta, problems in some areas with previous versions.
Fix: ICQ uses a Windows "reserved" feature in such a way that it confuses Aurora. You need to upgrade to version 3.05, then get then get the latest release of Aurora 3 AWINDEMO.EXE then follow these directions:
1) Shut down any Aurora programs.
2) Run the file to install the latest release of Aurora 3.
3) You need to edit the [Aurora] section of the AURORA.INI file in your AWIN3 directory using Notepad as follows:
ReservedBit can be between 0 and 3. 1 does not work with Microsoft Works. 2 is the default, but does not work with ICQ.
4) Restart Windows to make sure the update to AURORA.INI has been comitted.
5) Start Aurora Prediction, About should show version 3.0.5.0004
Problem: When you use Voice Options|Autodetect in any of the
Aurora programs, the program stops with an error message.
Patch: Download AVD206.ZIP (15K) and see the READ.ME.
Problem: You have problems using the Creative Labs TextAssist
DecTalk program for speech output in Aurora.
Fix: Obtain TAWSWGUP.EXE from Creative Labs World Wide Web site http://www.creaf.com to upgrade your TextAssist program to version 1.3. Follow the instructions for installation. Quit all Aurora programs. Rename the file CTSFRAME.DLL in your AWIN2 directory to CTSFRAME.BAK. Restart your computer.
Problem: You have a Thinkpad 380 and each time the Aurora
RealVoice speaks, four junk characters appear at the top of the screen
slowly moving from left to right.
Fix: This model of ThinkPad has an unusual display driver. Download ARV208.ZIP (1.7M). Follow the directions in the included READ.ME file.
Problem: In Microsoft Excel 97 if you type into a cell, the word
prediction will ignore the first letter you type.
Explanation: This problem is due to Excel switching you to a different window after you type the first letter. Aurora keeps track of the suggestion list and the keys you have typed on a window by window basis so when Excel switches windows mid-word, Aurora has no way of telling that the two windows are related.
Workaround: Quit all Aurora programs. Edit the AURORA.INI file and remove any Watch lines that contain the word "EXCEL" for example:
Add the line below replacing the ## with a number greater than the number in any other Watch##= lines in your AURORA.INI file.
You can now save your changes to AURORA.INI and restart Prediction. Now to type numbers click in the cell and type the number, Aurora Prediction will not come on, and you won't have trouble with entering numbers selecting words from the prediction window. When you want to type text and have assistance from Aurora Prediction, click on the cell, then click on the formula entry window below the Excel toolbar and enter your text.
