Only weird thing is it only announces the temperatures when you press the talk 
button so if you just wanted to know the time you have to press mode as if you 
wanted to set the time and press the talk button.
Well worth the money though.

  maybe it's a different model then; even MaxyAids said the one I thought you 
had (I thought was the same) as needing sighted assistance for setup.

  exactly, time and  alarm are very easy to set with square mode button.  
Hourly announcement of time and temp and alarm on/off are toggle buttons. 
Volume and switch for announcing in Fahrenheit or Celsius on the back.

    are you talking about setting the time, and setting it to speak the temp 
every hour?  those kinds of things?

    I was able to set mine up without sighted assistance.

      this is the same one as the one I found on Amazon for $20.  Robert's 
right, it has a clock, and it has some alarm features like announcing the time 
and temp every hour, but you need sight to set all that up.

      I just bought one from www.futureaids.com for $13.99 with free shipping.
      Very easy to set up without vision and has a 10-foot probe which makes it 
easy to find a good place for it.  It has a built in stand but comes with 
screws to mount it on the wall which is probably what I will do.

      HTH,
      Betsy

        With the insanely cold weather we've been experiencing lately I've been 
encouraged to find a talking thermometer that I can keep inside my home that 
has a sensor I can put outside to check exactly what the weather is like in my 
neighborhood rather than my zip code. Instead of just doing a Google search or 
checking with the various companies who sell accessible products I thought some 
on the list might be able to offer me suggestions of units they've had success 
with or know about personally. I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks! 
        Hoping One Day to Defrost,
        Scott
