‘Drag & Drop’ can be used to send voice mails through other mail programs or communication software. Another feature of
JetVoiceMail is that it can create a small size self-player executable file (.exe) that is the combination of a player and voice
data so that the receiver can listen to the voice mail even though he or she doesn’t have JetVoiceMail. Also, with various
voice effects, such as Reverb, Echo, Robot Voice, and Helium Voice, you can enjoy sending humorous voice mails by altering
the original sound.
Voice Recorder
The voice recorder has voice mail and voice memo capabilities. It uses high sound quality 4:1 compression to

By upgrading firmware, the product performance can be greatly enhanced and bugs can be corrected.
Do not disconnect USB cable during upgrading of firmware. If this happens, iAUDIO will not work
properly.
Requirements of firmware upgrade
Firmware upgrade can only be possible when iAUDIO driver is properly installed to the user’s computer
and also when JetShell can communicate with iAUDIO without any problems. If JetShell is not working
properly, please refer to Appendix A.
Checking the firmware version
Check the current version of iAUDIO to find out whether the firmware version needs to be upgraded.
If the firmware version is identical, you don't need to upgrade it.
To confirm the firmware version, check the number which appears on the lower right of the LCD window
when you turn on the power. Number such as 0:03:50 indicates that the current firmware version is 3.50.
Firmware version is displayed also on the LCD when iAUDIO is connected to your PC.
