The Talking Laundry Module is a box that plugs into existing and many new General Electric washers and dryers. The device mounts on the side of the washer or dryer by way of magnets that are on the back of the box. One module can work with both the washer and dryer. When adjusting the dials on your washer and dryer, the device will give spoken feedback that lets you know which cycle you are on. Once you press start on the washer or dryer, the module will let you know how much time remains in the cycle. The module has a volume nob to control the level of the spoken feedback, and it has a button that you can press anytime to find out how much time is remaining in the washer or dryer’s cycle.
GE developed this device in cooperation with the Kentucky School for the Blind and the American Printing House for the Blind. You can purchase it here for $99.
