The only word that was wrong in your subject line was the word Made. This
product was not made for the blind, it was simply imported. That’s how
companies often work.
Cobolt’s own stuff to be fair don’t need sighted help to set up, but they also
import stuff that often does.
All the best

I know this is not what is hot at the moment but someone put on the bargain
store yesterday a clock that was sold by cobolt systems that had an indoor
temperature on it. the thing that surprised me was that you had to get sighted
assistance to set it up as it didn’t speak the time and date when being set up.
what is the point of this. I accept that most people have a bit of sight
these days but a company that is supposed to sell products for the visually
impaired ought to know better. I know it’s not much but it just makes my blood
boil. if people like cobolt can’t get it right then how are others supposed
to. sorry for the rant. Janet
