Discussion Summary

Explorers Ayanna and Lynn report on their experiences as well as those of several of their friends using Reminder Rosie, the talking alarm clock, during the past month. Then the explorers discuss and comment.

Personal use led to suggestions for improvement, such as smaller size and better volume adjustment, leading to the conclusion that Reminder Rosie may fill a need for the segment of older adults who do not use smartphones or other electronic devices.

It's not perfect yet, though. Perhaps the most humorous report is Rosie reversing A.M. and P.M. when she announced her 2:30 P.M. reminder at 2:30 A.M. and again at 3:00 A.M.
