Hi James,

On the same page you reference, you will see a talking indoor/outdoor thermometer. You must click the 'tell me more' link to get the details.

Hello Merv,

 

Future Aids/The Braille Super Store  has a $20, talking cube clock.  It is heavy duty with a loud female voice that doesn’t sound like a stupid robot from the sixties.

 

It announces time, indoor temperature and humidity.

 

It also has a 90 minute timer that goes to one hour in ten minute increments.  The last increment adds 30 minutes to go up to 90 minutes.

 

It runs on 4 triple A batteries not included.

 

Mine came free matter for the blind in about one week with no shipping charge.

 

I bought 3 of these around 6 years ago.  They all work fine.  One was dropped on a hard tile floor and still works.

 

I know that you may just want a stand alone talking indoor thermometer but, Here is a linkjust in case you want to take a look

There doesn’t seem to be much call these days for an indoor thermometer. Once upon a time I had talking indoor/outdoor thermometers. However they have long since worn out and have been disposed of with extreme happiness. I use my Echo when I want the outdoor temperature. It might not be to the exact degree but it is close enough for me.

However, I am unable to find something that will give me just an indoor temperature. The apartment where I live is not one in which I can install a talking Thermostat. And there is literally an 8 or 10 degree difference tween the North side of the apartment and the South side of the apartment 365 day of the year.

Today I asked AIRA to help me adjust the central heat which is located in the living room and it took me about a half an hour and several calls because even with the glasses and kit, the thermostat is so small and low contrast the Agents could not read the numbers and one was unable to help me saying she could not see it at all. even with Zoom on my iPhone.

I have been searching for quite a while for something that just does indoor temperature and nothing else. Because I can’t open my windows in the apartment to run wires or anything and don’t want to buy something more than I need. So any help locating just a Talking Indoor thermometer would be much appreciated.

Hello,
I have bought several talking thermometers from Amazon. The cool thing about them is that you can check indoor temperature, or use them to check the temperature of water, or whatever you are cooking.
I haven't looked recently, but just search for "talking thermometer" They cost between $15 and $20.

Re: Fit bit flex

Cristóbal
 

While I don't believe any of the Fitbits as a stand alone device are
accessible, the iOS app is completely accessible. The app is where you'd go
to check your data anyway. I have a Fitbit flex, but I really only use it
for the vibrating alarm feature. I use it as my silent alarm instead of my
iPhone in the morning so as to not wake up my wife since I’m the early bird
where she on the otherhand hates mornings with the intencity of a thousand
burning suns.
I couldnt' speak as the the accessibility of the Android app or if there's a
Windows version or other means to synchronize with the PC

Re: Accurate Talking Kitchen Scales

Cristóbal
 

I have no idea. I bought mine through Amazon.com, so maybe if you went through the Amazon UK site you’d have a better idea. You could also write them directly at their own website.
You may also want to check to see if the app is available in your country’s App Store.

Hi list,

 

When I go to some web pages, there is a link, usually at the top of the page, to “view in html format”

Is this better than standard when using a screen reader?

Thanks,

Re: Is there a way to listen to my iPhone through my computer?

Gene
 

There may be an easier way to do this.  Have you considered using a program like Tapin Radio?  You can listen to stations directly on your computer.  I don’t know how many stations you have access to with the app you are using on the IPhone but it might be useful to compare such means of listening.

My apologies Peter. I totally missed the fact that you said that you have an iPhone 6, and do have a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the phone. I'm sure that there is a Bluetooth way to do it if you have Bluetooth on the computer, but I would be tempted to just connect a 3.5 mm cable from your headphone jack on the phone to the audio input on the computer, then go into sound settings and make sure that your input source is set for line in.

Subject: [TechTalk] Is there a way to listen to my iPhone through my
computer?

I would like to connect my iPhone 6 to my computer and listen to the
radio stations through my computer speakers. I cannot figure out how
to do this. Any advice is greatly appreciated in advance.

Thanks,

Re: Fit bit flex

 

I am completely blind and use the Fitbit ionic. By itself it is not accessible but when you sync it with the Fitbit app on your phone it is accessible.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have my headphone system set up from my computer through a USB
digital analog converter to my headphone amplifier. I would like to
listen to radio stations on my iPhone through that system. I have no
way to connect the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone to my DAC.
Hope this clarifies the issue. Thanks very much for the responses!

hope you don't mind me asking, but why do you specifically want to run it
through your computer?
if it is purely for the better audio from the speakers you are using, then
with your iPhone being a 6, you can use either a 2way audio switch, or even
a 2 channel mixer desk to connect directly from the headphone jack to your
speakers, unless I am missing something else you want to do.
hope this helps.
