Orbit Research introduced in 1999 the second generation of the Talking ORION TI-34 after Texas Instruments changed the design of the TI-34.

Within a few years the TI-34 was discontinued and the ORION TI-36X hit the shelves - obviously based on the TI-36X SOLAR.

Don't miss other talking products for vision impaired - the Calcu-Talk and the Vocaid.

Another approach could be found in the Schoenherr Braillotron using refreshable Braille cells instead the talking voice.
