Talking Calculator

Assistive Technology of the Month

November: Talking Calculator

Talking CalculatorWe are featuring a different Assistive Technology device each month. This month we are highlighting the Talking Calculator. Features of the Talking Calculator include audio of keys pressed and calculation results, large buttons and bold print, large LCD 8-digit display, and a built-in alarm clock (alarm clock does not work with talking feature).

You might find the Talking Calculator helpful if you would like to hear confirmation of the buttons you’ve pressed, or if you would benefit from the large display when pressing buttons and reading the display.

We have a Talking Calculator on display in our St. Joseph office. If you have questions about the Talking Calculator, you can contact Karen in our Kalamazoo Office (269-345-1516 x115) or Joanne in our St. Joseph office (269-982-7761)

Assistive Technology Funding Assistance is Available

The Assistive Technology Loan Fund (ATLF) is available to help people pay for tools for independence such as health monitoring apps or the equipment to run them on. The ATLF is a low interest loan available to people with disabilities and their family members to help purchase items like wheelchair-accessible vehicles, hearing aids, mobility devices, communication devices, or adapted recreation equipment. The ATLF can also pay for home modifications, including ramps, to make your home more accessible. Contact Lewis in our Kalamazoo office (269-345-1516 x107) for more information.
