Specializing in the development and manufacture of products for people with disabilities, Orbit Research’s mission is to employ cutting-edge technology to bring to the community at affordable prices, products that are essential for an independent and productive lifestyle. Further information on the ORION TI-34 developed for vision impaired people is available at

The TI-34 was one of the higher sophisticated calculators sold by Texas Instruments in the year 1987. Texas Instruments introduced in 1996 a fancier design of the TI-34 and Orbit Research updated the ORION TI-34, too.

Don't miss other talking products for vision impaired - the Calcu-Talk and the Vocaid.

Another approach could be found in the Schoenherr Braillotron using refreshable Braille cells instead the talking voice.
