Record notes on the go with a talking recorder from the Adaptations Store

The Adaptations Store at LightHouse serves blind and visually impaired people by offering tools, technology and other comprehensive solutions to make life accessible. Each month, we feature a product from our store to highlight the expansive offerings at Adaptations.

This month’s product is for blind people who want to record notes on the go, and want to avoid cumbersome tech gear with a single, streamlined digital recorder.

The Eltrinex V12Pro Talking Digital Recorder is designed with input from blind users. The recorder’s features are all spoken aloud using the built-in voice guidance option along with audible beeps so it can be operated by users independently.

With a one-touch recording option at startup, and 12GB of internal storage along with a micro SD slot, storage of the recorded WAV or MP3 files is limitless.

The high quality stereo mics can pick up soft sounds from an incredible distance, along with loud sounds which are handled by the recorder’s accessible limiter to prevent distortion and clipping.

The device is incredibly versatile, and is useful whether you’re attending a concert or recording a lecture in an auditorium or classroom. This talking recorder captures every note, and plays it back via headphones or the device’s internal speaker.

An FM radio and a talking clock round out the recorder’s options, offering scheduled recording and easy file editing, all done through the talking menus.

LightHouse sells this product for $225.00 plus tax at our headquarters in San Francisco (1155 Market St., 10th Floor). Although we do not take online orders at the current time, we encourage you to call our staff at 1-888-400-8933 to inquire about item pick up or mail orders or email our store staff at adaptations@lighthouse-sf.org.
