Keeping up with the news with RealSAM In Your Pocket

Keeping up to date can be tough.  Tougher also if your eyesight is starting to fail.  And Isolation just makes things worse.

The RealSAM In Your Pocket team appreciates this.  In fact creating a newspaper reader was the “version 1” of In Your Pocket.   We now have over 100 Newspapers available, that are updated daily.  And there is nothing simpler than using In Your Pocket.  RealSAM allows you to search inside Talking Newspapers, jump to a section or article and stream instantly.

To find a Newspaper you can jump straight to it by saying something like  “Read me the Guardian“.  If you are unsure, you can say “Which Newspapers do you have?” .  If you are getting Pocket to list the Newspapers, you can shorten your search by saying something like “Next starting with B” or “Next containing Essex“.   Once you have started reading a newspaper you like you can say “Subscribe“.  Next time you want to listen, you only need to say “My Newspapers” to get to the Newspapers you like.

You don’t need to wade through the newspaper, to get to the section you like. You can say “Skip this Section“, or “Next Section”  or perhaps “What Sections do you have?“.  Of course if you know you can say “Read the Sport Section“.     When you have mastered Pocket, you can jump straight to it and say things like “Read me the Business Section of the Times“.

Pocket will start reading you the headlines for the section.  You can jump in at any time by saying “That one“.    You can then say “Next” for the next article or “Go Back” if you want,  You can also find a specific  article by searching with phrases like “Search for articles about Big Ben” or “Find Articles about the NHS“.

You can of course sit back close your eyes and say “Automatic Reading” then Pocket will do all the work.  Mind you if you don’t like an article you can say “Next” without dropping out of automatic mode.
