Hi Caroline,

The Caretec Zeitgeist is a nice clock.  No displays, just three buttons on
the whole clock, and probably one of the smallest clocks I have seen.

There are timers and alarms on it, but of course, you don't have to use
them.

All the best

Steve

Subject: [access-uk] Talking Clock Recommendation

Hello,

I have been asked to recommend a talking clock to a fairly elderly lady.
Her requirements are that the clock should have a natural-sounding voice, be
fairly small and easy to set up and operate, and not cost more than around
£25.

The model of clock I have is no longer being produced, so I have looked on
both the Cobolt and RNIB sites to see what's currently available.

From what I've seen, and the audio samples I've listened to, the talking
cube clock from the RNIB seems to be probably the most suitable.  I'd be
interested to know if anyone has any experiences, good or bad, with this
clock, or if you think any of the alternatives would be better.

Thanks,

Caroline.
