<grins> I have 2 of those, and both in use... Plus, she can't use a
keyboard yet, so I don't want clutter- the unit will be hidden away, and
only screen will be seen by the child (ATM anyway). And, again, costs
are an issue...

I don't have one yet, but I was hoping someone might have a suggestion
as to which one might be capable of switching off the audio alert.
