    I was in the waiting room for a Derm. appointment and this charming older man near me had
    his watch say aloud "It is now 10 AM." He smiled and said "this was a an Xmas present from my's intended for the blind but it helps me keep track of my day."

    I didn't know those were made. If (and I assume they can) they can be set to speak when it's time to take a medication, for example, that would be great for difficult children who forget.
    Thought I'd share...although you guys may have known about them for years. DDD

    My stepfather is blind and has had one for at least 20 years.

    My mom was legally blind and we had talking clocks for her. The alarm on those... you could NOT ignore it. A very loud rooster crow!
