[blindza] Re: Vernier caliper

In that case, they'll just have to get hold of a second pair of reading

>> Hi all,
>>
>> Thought I will share this piece of equipment as some of you like working
>> on
>> cars/motorbikes etc.
>>
>> Due to my work, I have to measure quite accurately some parts. I got a
>> talking measuring tape but this did not do the trick. I started looking
>> around for a talking vernier (device to measure up to 0.01mm)as this was
>> what is normally used and also what I used before going blind, but found
>> absolutely nothing in S.A.
>>
>> I found a website, http://www.captek.net/Site/Welcome.html  that
>> manufactures equipment for the blind, and ordered myself one. The cost is
>> R690, yes yes I heard you all go MTHRFKR... The Voiceman (speaking 
>> module)
>> will work on certain models of Mitutoyo instruments for example
>> micrometer,
>> digital height vernier, digital caliper etc. You need only to buy the
>> other
>> measuring instrument and the appropriate cable for that instrument and 
>> the
>> voiceman will read the measurement.
>>
>> Mail me if you need more info.
