Now available from PURE Digital is the world’s first speaking DAB radio (why the vast majority of people would want one we’re not quite sure though blind people will be very grateful no doubt). Featuring iVOX voice feedback technology, the SONUS-1XT uses recorded speech to provide selectable voice feedback for anything from the time, to your alarm settings, to the full set-up of the radio. Scroll through the selection of available stations and hear them in apparently human (ie. not Stephen Hawking robotic) tones. You can even choose a male or female voice.
