If you are happy with using an iPhone, then Qardio is excellent.  I use it
on Android.  I also use QardioBase, which is the scales.

Subject: [BCAB] talking bp monitors

Hi List,

We're endeavouring to find a decently priced BP monitor (upper arm cuff
variety) which gives us some sort of speech feed back.

I've spent a frustrating 15 minutes trying to establish if the RNIB Talking
bp monitor has speech out of the box.
It's says on the RNIB shop that it comes with the ability to turn off
speech.  My interpretation re this statement tells me that the speech is
turned on by default.
Does anybody on this list have some experience with this device.

Are there other off-the -shelf BP monitors.  I see that Lloyds on-line do
stock a talking BP monitor for less than £30.
The RNIB one is £44 and we've been looking at a Bluetooth version by
QardioArm which sincs with either IOS or android and is priced from £70

Btw, the RNIB device is "non-returnable" on hygene grounds.  Can't imagine
