And exactly how would you use an indoor/outdoor weather thermometer to
measure body temperature? Stick the outdoor temp probe in your mouth? Or
in your ear? I don't think so. This thype of thermometer is not designed
to measure body temperature and will not provide accurate results. Medical
thermometers have a relatively narrow recording range, from about 95 degrees
F to about 108 degrees F, whereas weather thermometers have a much wider
measurement range, from about -10 Degrees F to about 110 degrees F. It's
sort of like trying to make a grilled cheese sandwich in a microwave oven.
The cheese will melt, but you will just wind up with a gooey mess, not a
crisp, golden brown sandwich as you would if you had made it in a Foreman
grill or a stove-top frying pan.

It would work just would not be accurate enough . it could be as much as a
degree or two off. Clinical ones would be accurate to weigh less than a

I realize Bob made a mistake, but I wonder how using one of those
indoor/outdoor thermometers would work taking body temperature. If I get
one, I think I'll try it <laugh>!

If you had bothered to follow this thread, Bob clearly stated that he
was looking for a talking medical thermometer, not a weather
thermometer. So Bob, check out the HealthSmart DigiScan Talking
Forehead/Ear Thermometer which is available on for $23. I
have this unit myself, and it is fairly accurate and easy to use. You
simply hold the probe against the center of your forehead, press the
button on the back and instantly hear your temperature announced in a
clear, female voice. Best of all, it runs on two easily replaceable
AAA batteries, not cockamamie button cell batteries like other units
sold by the blind-products merchants that are not replaceable and that
always seem to be dead when you reach for the thermometer to take your
temperature. In addition to announcing your body temperature, the
HealthSmart DigiScan can also announce the current time and room
temperature, which makes it very versatile. The time can be set
without sighted help, although it is a bit tricky. Check it out:

Bob, this may be more thermometer than you want. However, I bought a
talking indoor outdoor thermometer from speak to me for slightly more
than $50. The thing which is great about this is that there is no
wire on the outdoor module. It is a small transmitter which runs on
two triple A batteries which you just hang up outside of your house or
apartment. The base is a talking clock as well as the date and the
indoor and outdoor thermometer. The base unit runs on two double A
batteries. Well worth the money and the voice is good.
