MessageHi Aidan,
Still hunting for a suitable phone.
Does your cordless BT phone have a screen as well as builtin speech?  Enquiring 
in Argus about BT phones I was told a person would have to see screen to use 
these phones and catalogue does not mention anything  about speech on any of 
the phones listed.  All the BT phones have screens.
Kind regards,
Noreen

  Hi Noreen, Sorry for delay in rreplying. I don't know about the BT phones now 
in stock but the original cordless we had had the voice on the base unit. I 
assume all BT stuff probably has this feature. The unit I have now has 4 
cordless handsets and a base unit that is very small and futureistic. It gives 
great coverage all over the house and it is digital. Handsets are very small, 
like a mobile phone. It can also be used as a internal system and you can call 
up any of the four and pass incoming calls around, very handy. Fine on bump 
ons. I must look that up. I use them like you on dishwasher, and washing 
machine. I retire next year and I assume there will be some role reversal and I 
will become a househusband!. 
  Regards
  Aedan.

    Hi Aedan,
    Also the talking kitchen scales should be added to the list , and not 
forgetting bumpons.  I use bumpons on cookers, washing machine, dishwasher and 
microwave (mine is not a talking one) and even for the different settings on 
thermostat on radiators.  A selection of different size, shape and colour 
bumpons are now free from NCBI shop.
    By the way Aedan, do you know details of cordless BT phone from Argus that 
you mention?  Checking their catalogue does not give you any information about 
built in speech etc., on the different phones listed.
    Kind regards,
    Noreen

      Hi Susan,
      I have many gadgets from cobal including a talking 10 ft steel rule that 
can read in inches or mms at a press of a button: i have atalking thermomater 
that is very accurate for use on yourself or children. I have a talking 
indoor/outdoor talking thermometer for the weather. I actually hav three of 
these as I have one in the house and one in my radio shack and one in my 
holiday home. I also have a talking bathroom scales all from Cobal, which I 
ordered through Breda Dowlihng in NCBI. 
      Another must-have is a talking colour detector, again very reasonably 
priced for what it does and apart from telling you the colour of the clothes 
you wear to four degrees of shade, it can also with suitabel care, read the 
colour of electric wires for the likes of us D I Y fanatics! 
      I have found that most of the BT phones of any type including cordless 
from Argus all have built in speech that announces every function and perfectly 
usable by a totally blind person like me. I particularly like the beep it gives 
if a voice message is left. Very handy indeed.
      Lastly, the gadget to measure your paper money is invaluable and cheap 
enough. 
      Regards to all,
      Aedan O'Meara.

        hi folk,

        here is the limk for cobolt systems the organisation that i get my 
talking timers from.

        http://www.cobolt.co.uk/

        cobolt also do talking watches, clocks and much much more, i actually 
prefer there items as the speech is much clearer than those from the rnib.
        best wishes

        susan
