tanaguru color contrast for accessibility

The following 3 URL's give 3 different results from the tanaguru page ... and are all accepted by the tanaguru Firefox plugin.

settings for Android skins on Smart Keyboard Pro

If you did not start life with an Android phone, adding a "skin" or theme to the Smart Pro keyboard may not be as obvious as the Forum web page text suggests.

You must know that to the right of the keyboard choices are identical "slider" icons on the "Settings" page for Keyboard and Input and THAT ICON in THAT row is the settings they mean for you to click on.

When THAT settings page opens for Smart Keyboard Pro you will see the skins IFF you have placed the zip files in a /skins directory or 'folder' in the root of sdcard0 using a filesystem tool.

The 'forum' page should have an image of the entry Settings page so that you can SEE what they mean.  The keyboard would be so much better if there were an option to have a Settings key as a long click option !

from The Southern Journal for Applied Idiopathy archival materials on paper

From an unprinted letter to the editor left behind in the paper archives:

"After decades of symptoms brushed aside by doctors, I don't know that I'll survive a seventh decade: these doctors are now given to longevity, even though most can afford to drink and smoke the best. Without a new generation to take up the banner, change risks being slow in idiopathic treatments."

Author's name withheld pending advice; the editors, The Southern Journal for Applied Idiopathy.
