Grilling and Swimming, two great ways to get through a hot summer day. I can't think of a better backyard activity than swimming in the pool, and cooking a great meal on the grill. Here are some talking products that will make both activities easier for people who are blind or visually impaired.
Talking Pool/Spa Thermometer
This unique thermometer will actually speak either the pool or spa and the ambient temperatures every hour! Imagine being able to get a water temperature update at the top of the hour when your getting ready for the day, or at night when you're planning on swimming or relaxing. If you would like to hear an update before the hourly announcement is made, simply press the Talking button, and the unit will announce the water and ambient temperatures.
In addition to the hourly announcement feature, there is also an alarm feature that will announce the current time and both the probe and air temperatures repeatedly for the first minute, and then it will announce the time and both temperatures once every ten minutes four times.
It runs on 2 "AAA" batteries, and includes a probe that is 10 feet long. This allows you to position in a convenient spot and still recieve the water temperature. Setup is extremely simple, and can be completed in less than a minute. In fact, if you don't want to use the hourly temperature or alarm features, the only setup that is necessary is to install the batteries.
The probe is waterproof, so there is no need to worry about it once you have it installed. The unit has a temperature range of -58F to 158F. The LCD display can be set to show either the ambient or probe temperature simply by sliding the selector switch.

How about missing medication when you're having fun with the kids? Simplify your life with the talking timer. It includes both countdown and count-up timers as well as the normal clock mode.
