Hi there, new to HUKD. Unfortunately my father in law recently lost his vision. I wanted to get him a watch , either a talking one or one he can feel where the hands are on the dial.
He actually lives abroad and speaks Spanish, so a watch that can speak to him in Spanish, else feel the hands would be ideal.

I have looked on RNIB website but the language would be in English. I'm travelling to Spain in a couple weeks but have no idea where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Yes there are a few links on google, most of them seem to be US based co's. I have zero experience looking for this type of product - if anyone has bought something similar and recommends it , a website link would be v.helpful ! Thanks!
