Q: Must I use the built-in speaker in the back of the QT in order to hear the pronunciation of the word?
A: No. You can use the earphones enclosed in the package. Using the earphones is even recommended.

Q: When I use the earphones, the volume seems very loud. Is there any way to change this?
A: Yes. The volume of the QT can be controlled though the menu. Different volume settings should be used when listening directly through the built-in speaker and when using the earphones.

Q: Once I see the translation of the word on the screen, I have to press Enter in order to hear the pronunciation of the word. It would be much more efficient for me to hear the word right away.
A: You can determine whether the word is read aloud automatically , or upon request with the Enter button. Just choose your preference from the menu.

Q: Does the QT switch itself off automatically if I forget to?
A: Yes, The QT has a built in automatic shut-off function which you can set from 15-240 seconds.

Q: Can I also use the QT to scan words hyphenated at the end of a line?
A: Yes. The QT has a special function that allows you to scan the first half of a divided word, followed by the second half on the next line. It then reads these two halves as one whole word.

Q: Does the QT read white on black text too (inverted text)?
A: Yes. One click on the left arrow button adjusts the QT to reading light text on a dark background

Q: I am left-handed, Do I have to scan like a right-handed person?
A: No. You adjust the QT very simply for left-handed use.

Q: Can I translate words printed in very large fonts?
A: Yes. You can use the Opticard to enter words that are too large to scan, such as words appearing on billboards, signposts, etc.

Q: Does the QT translate English slang expressions too?
A: Yes. The QT contains more than 15,000 expressions and idioms in English, including a large selection of up-to-date slang usages.

Q: What is the advantage of using the QT rather than my familiar printed dictionary?
A: The QT allows you to look up the translation of a word without having to put down your book or newspaper. In addition, it presents you with the translation within seconds.
