Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Oct 22, 2021

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

We first talked about the Reminder Rosie Alarm Clock several years ago.  Now there is an all-new model available: introducing Reminder Rosie 2!  Reminder Rosie 2 is an alarm clock that doubles as a voice reminder assistant.

Reminder Rosie 2 boasts an "extra-large display" with 2-inch LED numbers, making it ideal for individuals with low vision.  With Reminder Rosie 2, you can personalize reminders to take medications, go to doctor's appointments, or even attend plans with friends!

You can easily set up reminders using voice prompts.  To wake Rosie up, simply say: "Wake up Rosie."  In addition to setting reminders, you can also ask questions like, "What day is it?" or "Tell me today's reminders."

Other features include:

Ability to record up to 25 personalized voice messages
Does not require WiFi
No costly recurring monthly charges
Easy to configure with verbal prompts for setup and recording messages
Plugs into any outlet, but also features battery backup in case of power outage
3 brightness settings
3 volume settings: high (up to 120dB), mid, and low
