A New Generation of Digital Recorders with Voice Guidance for the Blind and Visually Impaired

MaxiAids Products for Independent Living is currently highlighting some of their most innovative offerings for the blind and visually impaired. One of the best developments to come along is the voice guidance feature for compact handheld digital voice recorders, which provides audible prompts to the user who cannot see the markings on recorders. Olympus has built this feature into several of their digital voice recorders, making them more accessible and making the menus infinitely easier to navigate.

In addition to voice guidance, this new generation of compact digital recorders offers massive amounts of recording time (up to 1,062 hours) and additional features such as the ability to store and play back MP3 music, as well as WAV and WMA format audio books. Some even support automatic Podcast downloads.

Currently featured at MaxiAids are the Olympus Digital Recorder with Voice Guidance and 4GB memory for $349.99, and the 2GB model at the low price of $149.99. Visit to view the complete selection of Voice-Guided Digital Recorders and other items for the blind, visually impaired and low vision.
