‘The non-spill mug (£14.95), an item I use every day. It sticks to most surfaces and you can’t accidently knock it over. It is easy to clean and durable. One of the great things about the mug is; it doesn’t have a look as being designed for someone disabled. The down sides; it doesn’t work with all surfaces (Katherine will advise). Also, due to the metal inside, it doesn’t work with a liquid level indicator’ Anna

‘Talking Induction hob (£75), although I haven’t got one I like the features, it tells you when it is hot as you turn it off, it only heats to the temperature and it only works if you have a pan on it. The down sides; it only works with specific pans and is a tabletop addition rather than built in.’ Maxine

‘Talking Bathroom Scales (£29.99), they have made my life so much easier – I don’t have to crawl on the floor to try and read the scales and the price was right’ Jim

‘The Humanware Stratus (from £250) – it allows me to have control when I play CDs, Daisy disks and USB sticks. The downside; quite a few buttons and you have to learn what they all do to make the most out of it. However, with support from Katherine, this is achievable’ Leona
