The Pocket Talking Timer and Clock is a 2-in-1 timer and clock designed to keep individuals who are blind or have low vision informed of their cooking progress with alarm sounds and voice prompts. The countdown timer announces in a clear female voice the time the user has remaining until 00:00. At the 20-minute mark, for example, the user will hear a beep followed by the announcement, “20 minutes left.” Depending on the time the user sets, the Pocket Talking Timer and Clock will alert him or her with a beep and a voice prompt at the following intervals: Every hour from 23 hours, every 10 minutes from 60 minutes, every minute from 10 minutes, every 10 seconds from one minute, and every second down to 00:00 from 10 seconds. At 00:00, the timer alarm will sound for 60 seconds and the count-up timer will start (in the same increments as specified above) until the user turns it off.
If the user does not want or need the voice announcements during the countdown, he can turn it off using the voice on/off switch. With the voice turned off, the only audible notification he will receive will be the alarm beep sounding at 00:00. This battery-operated timer/clock has a built-in stand so it can be propped up on top of a counter or table, and the clear LCD display shows the time in 7/16-inch bold black numbers. The user can also select the alarm sound from six different options-whistling teapot, cuckoo, bell, hopping coil, car horn, or traditional beep.
