The C2 Talking Compass is a hand-held compass with speech output designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. The C2 speaks the four major compass points and four interim points (northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest). The user orients the compass in the desired direction, then presses a button to hear the direction. The standard version comes pre-installed with English and Spanish. The custom version can be chosen with two languages from these: Arabic, Czech, Danish, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese Korean, Mandarin, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish. New languages and personalized voices can be added. The C2 includes a wrist strap, which is designed to give the user instant access to the device while retaining freedom of hand movement. There is a three-position switch along the side of the compass. The center position is the "off" position, while the other two positions correspond to the two languages installed in the device. POWER: Uses two 12-volt (A23, MN21 or GP23A) batteries (not included). DIMENSIONS (HxLxW): 1 x 2 x 3 inches. WEIGHT: 2.2 ounces.
