Mike - sadly, I think the answer to your last question is yes--I never buy 
specialist stuff for the blind when I can find a suitable alternative, as in my 
experience, it is too often unreliable, doesn't last the test of time, and 
often feels too big and too ugly!

  Hello all,

  This is not strictly computer related, but involves accessibility 

  Does anyone know of a good quality talking tape measure; other than the 
Cobalt one?

  I have two of these, and a year is about the most I can get out of both them, 
as they always end up giving spurious measurements- such as 2513 inches when 
the tape is fully retracted.

  Replacing the battery etc does no good.

  Do we have to put up with inferior quality materials every time?
