When you first turn on your badge, you’ll see the following: 1) an icon indicating the amount of battery left in the badge, and 2) the phrase “MI-8” (this phrase just identifies the type of badge you’re using for our internal purposes).
Button 2 is useful when there are multiple messages. When you’ve selected multiple messages, if you tap Button 2 once, it will skip to the end of the existing message so that the next message can be played. If you tap Button 2 twice, it will replay only the second message (same works for if there are 3 messages). If you want the messages to play serially after you’ve chosen just the 2nd or 3rd messages to repeat, just tap Button 2 once.
Also, Button 2, if held down for 2-3 seconds, will bold (i.e. make brighter) the text in the badge.
“Available Modes” are how the messages are displayed on the badge itself:
“Left” = the text ends up on the left by scrolling from right to left
“Right” = the text ends up on the right by scrolling left to right
“Up” = the text ends up on top going bottom to top
“Down” = the text ends up on the bottom by going from top to bottom
“Freeze” = text does not move. Note if the message does not fit on the screen, it will freeze portions of the message and display in multiple sessions
“Pile Up” = the text will appear after “piling” or “stacking” up
“Volume Up” “Laser”, and “Animation” = variation of the text being displayed in a more catchy way
“Available Speeds” control how fast the “available modes” occur (i.e. how fast the text scrolls through the badge). We’ve included many options so you can get the speed just right. The options are Slowest, Slow, Normal, Fast, and Fastest.
“Enable Flash” controls whether you want the text to flash when displayed.
“Enable Border” controls whether you want a border around the text when displayed.
