One the digital only works in the mouth or under the arm or in the B Hole .
the infrared uses an infrared beam either on your forehead or in the ear.
Will give links to both.

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.

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 Amazon.com 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:

I used to own this Future Aids talking medical thermometer myself, but gave up on it because one day when I wasn't feeling well and reached for it to take my temperature, I discovered to my great chagrin that the batteries were dead. The two AG12 button cell batteries that came with the unit are not easily replaceable, and even if they were, where can you actually buy them? This is a very uncommon battery type which is not usually sold in the chain pharmacies. In the good old days, when Radio Shack had a store in practically every neighborhood,you could probably buy them there. But, of course, since it filed for bankruptcy last year, Radio Shack closed most of its stores, and so it is no longer easy to buy those hard-to-find batteries like the ones used in the Future Aids thermometer. What good is a medical thermometer if it doesn't work when you aren't feeling well and need to take your temperature? That's why I did extensive research for an alternative and bought the HealthSmart talking Forehead/ear thermometer I mentioned in my previous message. It runs on two AAA batteries, which are availabel everywhere, and of course, because most of us have all these other gadgets that run on them, we usually have them on hand. So if I ever reach for my HealthSmart thermometer and find that it's dead, I can simply fetch a fresh pair of AAA batteries from the refridgerator and install them in a flash and take my temperature. I just love it when blind-products merchants like Future Aids provide instructions for their products on their web sites, but conveniently neglect to explain how to replace the batteries. They probably figure that for ten bucks, you'll just throw out the thermometer when it stops working due to dead, non-replaceable batteries, and buy a new one from them. By the time you receive your new talking thermometer,though, you , like the batteries could be dead. LOL!

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
degree.

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.

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
degree.

I realize Bob made a mistake, but I wonder how using one of those

one, I think I'll try it <laugh>!

That sounds very painful, laugh.
I am still looking for an oven thermometer. I have a regular talking cooking thermometer, but I am afraid that if I stick it in the oven for too long, the plastic will melt. There's an infrared thermometer, but it's well over a hundred dollars--way too much to just calibrate your oven. The search continues...

Hi all,

I believe the gentleman wanted a medical thermometer.
