Two new innovate audio products to be launched at Naidex.
The Silver Surfer, a digital radio specifically designed to address the needs of older / infirm users. In precisely focusing on the individual requirements of this market, the Silver Server was created to be the first on the market to address all of the potential challenges faced by this growing section of the population when considering a radio. Working with a number of `non-negotiable` requirements - for example, genuine simplicity of use - the design team ensured the Silver Surfer delivered all the below key features:
- Extra-Large Display: the high-contrast, jumbo size display is a welcome look for those with failing sight.
- Simplicity: less frequently used buttons are concealed under a flap creating easy access to day-to-day functions - again, ideal for and those with failing sight, as well as those who consider themselves technophobes
- Talking Books: the USB playback encoder means that the listener can listen to talking books as well as their own personally compiled playlists. (can we mention RNIB here? When you say playlists, do you mean music?)
- Talking Radio: from the moment the Silver Surfer is powered up - it runs on batteries as well as Mains - the unit delivers voice prompts to deftly guide the user through the radio`s functions.
- Temperature Alert: a potentially invaluable feature, the Silver Surfer`s built-in system alerts the user to low temperatures, recommending them to adjust the heating.
-Voice Memo: another crucial option, here the Silver Surfer lets the user, or perhaps a relative or carer, record messages and set times - as you would with alarm - to playback, say, a reminder to take medication.
