Smart check 2 or clever check 2, one is no longer made and the other 
still is and test strips are available. It is a talking meter. I'm 
pretty sure it is the clever check 2 and I use one twice a day even 
though I'm not currently diabetic anymore.
I did try a device which beeped the blood score but cannot remember what 
it was called but the unit was pretty big and cumbersome.
I have heard of iPhone compatible devices but the tester part that plugs 
into the iPhone were for iPhone4 and the creator had no desire at the 
time to make them for later models as they did not catch on.
Your friend's specialist nurse should be able to supply a talking monitor.
