ho hum, and it's now ?60 for one of these?  Hmm.

I missed a rather important point. Sorry don't know how I edited it out.

You can use the search and scan banner and find out what's on up to twelve
hours in the future. I think you will be able to hit record on top of the
programme so that it gets recorded and added to your sky planner. Of course,
the slight issue is you can't then read your sky planner and watch it back.

Sky Talker comes out on 26 October. Price is 60 pounds. 

The box looks like a Sky Broadband router. It's black. It has a volume up
and down switch for the voice on its top. 

There are 9 available voices male and female. You can adjust their tone and
speed. 

You can't access the EPG or any of the menus, it only works from within the
channel you're watching. It'll say what channel and what programme is on now
on the channel you've selected. 

The play, record, rewind and pause buttons all speak. You will get a warning
every 60 seconds if you leave it on pause so you know what's happening. 

You can press the remote's 'I' info button for a programme synopsis. 

it also speaks channel numbers.
