[access-uk] Re: Talking Clock Recommendation

Hi Carol

It's a grand little fellow, with the same voice as the Colorino.  It is about 
the size of a remote control, with a speaker and three buttons on it.  It can 
tell you the usual things like date and time, but has a host of other brilliant 
features like different alarm settings; an agenda; timer; can tell the time in 
other countries; calculates when you were born in days, hours, minutes ... It's 
amazing!! 

For those who remember Eureka, and her ability to tell you the day you were 
born, or days between events etc, then the Zeitgeist does likewise.
