Answer
We checked on Amazon and they have only one talking wall clock priced $109. US. It is digital. They had a number of free standing desk clocks at a much lower price. There was one analog talking clock costing $12. US. You might check with organizations that deal with blind people and see what they can offer. I doubt very many people would want a talking wall clock as you would have to go to the clock to press the button that gives the time a the moment. It announces the time every hour but not in between the hour. There is no brand name on the clock but it is made in China.

Expertise

I can not think of any questions I cannot answer in regard to repairing antique clocks or radios. However, I am sure there are a few I have not heard and may not be able to answer. If I cannot, I will say so. I have been repairing them since I was a young child.

Experience

My experience includes repairing CooKoo clocks, Westminsters, BimBam, almost all antique clocks. I do a bit of repair on battery clocks where the value is sufficient to warrant working on them. I also repair antique (tube type) radios - all makes.
