I just tried. It works for business numbers. Not for personal numbers.

Hi all,



Here's hoping that this is not too far off topic. And, so
far, Gene hasn't killed any one yet. Uhh. As far as I
know.



For years now, I have not been able to use Free Directory
Assistance for phone numbers in my home town of Nacogdoches,
Texas. If you are wondering how to pronounce Nacogdoches,
most screen readers get it right when it is spelled like
this: Nacogdoechus.



I am calling 800.373.3411 which works reasonablely well with
a well known city like Dallas or Houston. But, for years
now, it doesn't recognize my home town. This is quite a
bummer since I need to be able to find numbers here in
Nacogdoches.



I have tried spelling Nacogdoches. I have tried using just
the zip code. No joy.



Any one have any ideas?



Damn, I miss the good old days when you got a really polite
lady who was happy to do a little digging around foryou.
