#2 Sharing Items to Help -

At one of Millie’s support group meetings everyone shared something that makes life easier for those with low vision.

Millie showed the group her talking pedometer. She liked to know how far she walked each day.

One member talked about her talking microwave. Millie didn’t have a talking microwave, but she had pieces of adhesive tape on her microwave to identify the “start” button, the “clear” button, and the “one minute” button.

Another member demonstrated her talking blood pressure monitor. Others discussed talking thermometers (indoor, outdoor, and body), scales, calculators, clocks, watches, and a scanner that reads products.

Here are catalog websites and  phone numbers to search for these and many other items.
