It does not have to talk necessarily, and as I recall that one is not made
any longer.  I just need something I can use without having to ask for help
all the time.

Were you thinking about getting one of those talking microwaves, like the 
one demonstrated on Larry's podcast a while back?

My 28-year-old microwave finally died yesterday.  Any suggestions on one I
can adapt easily?  I had a huge Amana with dials.  I just want suggestions
on the best way I can use some of the newer ovens.  I am not opposed to
marking, just wonder which brands are worth looking at.

Yes, I did change the subject line of Rose's message.  She was talking about
her computer calling people at random.  It reminded me of something I read a
few years ago.  In Florida, they were trying to build a lot of homes with
speech input which could control things like the thermostat, the microwave,
the answering machine, etc.  One family had a real problem with this in that
there phone bill was much higher than it should have been.  There were a lot
of calls to Grand Ma that no one had made.  They called the company and they
came out and tried to figure out what was happening, but they went back
without solving the problem which kept occurring.  Some time later, one of
the family members was at home and her dog wanted to go outside.  It barked
twice, and just like that, the phone dialed Grand Ma.  So folks, get a
talking answering machine and teach your dogs to dial the phone for you and
you will be all set. Well, perhaps not.
