Here is the text.
SONUS-1XT is the world's first DAB digital radio with iVOX? voice
feedback technology, bringing new levels of accessibility to radio
listening. Based on EVOKE-1, the world's best-selling DAB radio,
SONUS-1XT maintains the original's classic looks, but adds voice
feedback, smoother lines, a clear graphical display, even better
audio quality and alarm clock functions.
Tap the unique SnoozeHandle? once to hear the time in clear,
human tones (no robots here!). Tap it twice to have your alarm
settings confirmed. An adjustable sleep timer lets you go to sleep
to relaxing music or chat, and the independent alarms can wake
you to a completely different station or a tone if you prefer.
With voice prompts, clear instructions, automatic volume
equalisation, a CD-based audio user guide, and dedicated
UK-based support team, SONUS-1XT is the easiest radio you will
ever own.
Alternative voices are available from our website at www.pure.com.
The World?s First DAB Radio with Voice Feedback
iVOX Technology
Uses recorded speech to provide
selectable voice feedback for anything
from the time, to your alarm settings to
the full set-up of the radio ? it can even
spell out DAB scrolling text. And it?s easy
to adjust the amount of voice feedback
using the dedicated iVOX button.
Unique Bedside Features
Enhanced touch-sensitive SnoozeHandle
tells you the time, tells you your alarm
settings, snoozes the alarm and lights
the display at night to see the time.
Volume Equalisation Technology
automatically adjusts volume levels when
you change stations so you don't have to.

iVOXTM makes radio accessible to everyone all the time. Using iVOX
technology SONUS-1XT tells you station names, tells you the time,
and tells you your alarm settings. It can even talk you through
setting alarms or presets. All in real human tones. And all under
your complete control. Just turn off what you don't need using the
easy-to-change iVOX settings.
Woken up but don't want to open your eyes? Just tap the
SnoozeHandleTM and SONUS-1XT will tell you the time.
Want to check your alarm settings? Simply tap the SnoozeHandle
twice and they'll be spoken to you.
Can't find your glasses? SONUS-1XT will name the stations as you
scroll through them, and even talk you through all aspects of
setting up the radio.
Ever been frustrated when changing
from a talk station to a music station,
because you always have to adjust
the volume? No more.
Volume Equalisation Technology
(VETTM) means that your SONUS-1XT
constantly monitors the audio levels
of every station and subtly adjusts
their relative volume levels over time.
So once you've found the volume
setting you like you can switch
between stations without changing
the volume.
