> Testing Summary: Auckland 12 March 2011
> Who: Fabiana, Leslie, Tabitha
> Tested au861-2 on XO-1.0s
> Connected to mesh 1 automatically, tested on that for a while, then tested
> the wireless at the bar, both seemed to work okay but when one XO went to
> sleep while on mesh it wouldn't reconnect to the mesh after wake up at all
> would connect to the wireless network.
> Closing the lid of the XO, cannot get it to wake up by pressing the
> touchpad, wake up required you to push the gaming keys or the power button
> something (what I am trying to write here is that the user was expecting
> to wake up because any key wakes up her work laptop so that is what she
> used to).
> Maze - all good
> Speak - one of the XOs had a big delay before it would speak the text, the
> still answers a bit strange (doesn't know its name, doesn't want to talk
> anything and says it is a computer matter not a human matter), there is
> enough space between words. Tested 3 XOs video chat and can see each other
> and can communicate successfully but the two that joined didn't know they
> to change to the audio chat window - could it automatically go there when
> join? Mouth and eyes change work, pitch and rate change work, tried a few
> languages and the pronunciation does change, the "ch" sound doesnt sound
> right in the german
> Write - can collaborate with 3 XOs successfully. We closed the lid on one
> tried to wake it up and found it had lost its connection to the mesh and
> longer collaborating in the story (typing does not appear on the other XOs
> screens). Tried changing formatting and fonts, adding tables and pictures,
> changing styles, all worked.
> Paint - functions tested work, mouse went crazy though, would be good if
> could set the border width on shapes
> Record - takes photos, videos and records audio, all are saved. Created a
> with our own words and it worked.
> Memorize - played addition and letters and music with 3 XOs, all worked,
> different levels and all worked.
> Didn't have release notes during the testing session, so will need to
> weekend (thanks for the extra information Sridhar).
> We were going to also test XOpup-2.1 today but I could not get it to start
> properly. I put the USB into the XO-1.0 and started the XO but it didn't
> said something about boot device, then something about inflate size error
> invalid 0pcode. Also tried with XO-1.5 but got simliar message.
