Hi Sean,
Thanks. As I'm in Bristol I might try to follow this up.
Thanks again.
Ian.

Hi,

They're at bristollbraille.co.uk  and yup,  they're doing the Cannute. It's
gotten smaller and lighter in just a few months, really fast becoming a
viable product. I have no idea if they want to take on ne products at the
moment but they seem the sort to be able to do something creative like a
tactile clock.

Interesting!
... but I would still prefer Braille or tactile.
How do you contact Bristol Braille Tech? Are they the ones developing the
Braille reader?

Hi ian,

I wear a Bradley during the day. I also have a sound-asleep pillow and hook
my phone or MP3 player to it at night time, so I literally get the time in
my ear if I'm too asleep to feel.  Not exactly a mainstream solution though
eh!

I'm pretty sure Bristol Braille Technologies could jump on the case to
manufacture a reliable Braille alarm clock one day, that'd be a great
seller.

S.

Hello
Just a thought have you tried a tactile watch or clock?
failing that ear muffs for your wife? *smile.
