Prodigy Voice® – A Talking Glucometer

By: Joel Hosner, MDTAP Advisory Council Consumer Representative

People with vision impairments can measure their blood sugar with the Prodigy Voice Talking Glucometer! The Prodigy Voice is the only meter to receive the Access Award from the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) and an Access Plus Award from the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). The Access Plus Award is only given to products that give blind patients the same usability that a sighted person would have. The Prodigy Voice is fully audible, both in setup mode and during testing, and has tactile features for ease of use and navigation. Prodigy Voice requires no coding, and once a test strip is inserted, the machine powers on automatically. The Prodigy voice also has an audio jack for discreet use of the talking function, as well as a USB port to download reading results.

The Prodigy Voice is available online for around $40.
