[access-uk] Re: Talking robot vacuum cleaner

All I can say is that you are shameful Dave Ankers!! (laughs.)

Trying desperately hard to keep this sanely on topic, what is the speech on these robotic cleaners like? Does it tell you things like when the bag is empty, assuming of course it has one?

Jackie,

So have I, but yours is a bit bigger than mine! got mine from France, bet mine has better software than yours! and does a very satisfying job, although I do have to buy a new bag now and then, plus I keep finding long hair all over the house. I'd like to get another one, so while one is doing downstairs, the other can be doing upstairs, you can't have too much of a good thing I think.

Cheers

Dave

I've already got a talking vacuum-cleaner. He's about five feet five tall, with dark brown hair and blue eyes. He's good at getting into all the fiddly places and corners, and doesn't come with a docking station. He's called Ian!! (smile.)

Hi

www.broadbandstuff.co.uk

Electroluxe also makes one and Dison is developing one.

A few others are available but none appears to have speech onboard.

This is the fifth generation Roomba

Right Deon, sounds fantastic! so where do you get it from?  Don't mind
telling you I'm having a good old laugh at the idea of one of them
wandering round doing its thing ...  I've heard of it before, but have
never come across anybody using one.

Hi all

Thought some might be as fed up as me with hoovering so thought I'd pas
this on.

Recently bought an IRobot Roomba 560 robot vacuum cleaner.

It comes with an onboard talking, voice demo.

The same female voice also gives instructions when problems arise, e.g.
clean brushes.

It gives audible operational warnings e.g. when docking, reversing out of
docking station, turning on, etc.

It comes with 2 virtual walls, does not fall down the stairs and goes
back to its docking station to recharge when the battery is low.

Sighted help is needed to set the time and date and set up schedules.
However, you don't have to set up schedules; just press the clean button
and off it goes.

Works pretty well to keep floors clean between major hoovering sessions.

Priced round £240.

Hope this makes life easier for some.
