Accessible microwave for visually impaired

3.3 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent microwave for those who are visually impaired. It has tactile buttons with a loud voice which you can adjust the volume of. I have had this for 2 years and it works well. The only problem is it's quite expensive compared to mainstream microwaves and is specifically for visually impaired. Anyone can use it but its design is for visually impaired.
