Volume isn't loud enough: 

The Smart 3 should have loud and clear volume. If you are unable to set the volume high enough - try the following.
Mind Express saves its own volume setting, so it is important to set the required volume in Mind Express, NOT from the START menu > settings. Use the buttons at the bottom of the front panel to set the Volume in Mind Express to maximum. First set the buttons to be VOLUME buttons (go to Tools > Options > Left button action & Right button action). Once the volume is set to the maximum,  do a File > Save. Every time you restart Mind Express, Mind Express reverts to its previous volume setting. Saving the high volume setting will prevent a return to a low volume. 

Stop Smart 3 from speaking each character, when SPACE is pressed:

Select DOCUMENTS> letter settings > and then check the box that says " no speech when adding to letter".

Make 'letter box' (or sentence bar) bigger:

To increase or decrease the font size in the letter box (sentence bar) go to Document > Letter settings > Font, to select the desired size. Save under FILE settings

Hide and reveal menu bar - SMART 3:

There are two methods to HIDE the menu bar:

use the Hide menu option under Tools
press the button in the hole at the top left of the device 

To reveal the menu bar: press the recessed button at the top left of the side of the unit, using an unfolded paper-clip, or other pointed object.

When installing Zingui Mind Express from CDs - error message appears:

“lhsp01.dll is missing”

The Mind Express Smart or Zingui CD for Australia includes a RealSpeak Solo version of the speech engine. (The Solo part is important). If you install this CD, everything usually works fine.  If you use a DOWNLOADed installation file of Mind Express Smart or Zingui or an updated version provided by Zyteq , it will (by default) suggest to install the RealSpeak version. This is however confusing as this is actually a "RealSpeak 2" version (which is NOT the same as RealSpeak Solo). In fact, you should choose to install the TTS3000/Acapela version in case of RealSpeak Solo. So, reinstalling the downloaded Mind Express Smart or ZIngui and choosing for TTS3000/Acapela should solve the problem.
