resulting loss of data in RAM, the Say function will be disabled if battery power is
low. To restore full functionality of the device and to avoid risk of losing user data,
replace the complete set of batteries as soon as possible. Do not mix old and
new batteries.
9 If you plug in the AC adapter, full functionality of the device will be restored
