Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Talking Clock

A talking clock is a timekeeping device that presents the time audibly. The clock may present the time solely with speech, without any display, or may have a speech feature in addition to an analog or digital face.

Talking clocks have found a natural home as assistive technology devices for people with visual impairments. There are over 150 tabletop clocks and 50 types of watches which include an auditory output function. Devices with time speaking functions are now integrated into many other more generalized technologies for people with or without vision loss.
