To be able to configure the A190 using the voice menu, please follow the instructions below.

  • First press the "AUX" button to enter the top level of the voice menu. The first menu item will be read to you is: "Silent mode".
    Attention, you are not yet in the submenu "Silent mode".
  • You can either enter the submenu "Silent mode" by pressing "AUX" again, or you can navigate to another menu item by pressing "VOLUME+" or "VOLUME-" buttons.
  • You can expand the menu structure at the top. The menu is structured from top to bottom, i.e. you navigate from the first menu item "Silent mode" down to the other menu items.
  • So if you want to change the menu item "language" below "Silent mode", you have to press "AUX" first to enter the menu, then "VOLUME+" (to move down one item) and then "AUX" again to enter the submenu. With each step you take, you will hear a message telling you where you are and what your current status is.
  • To save the changed function, press "AUX" again. You will hear the announcement of the selected item/status again.
  • To leave the voice menu you can either press the "AUX" button for 2 seconds or wait until the headset leaves the menu by itself. Either way, a beep will be heard to indicate that you have left the menu.
