High contrast coloured speaking version with braille buttons of the DGT 3000 FIDE approved professional chess clock for blind and visually impaired players

The DGT Echo is a professional chess clock based on the DGT 3000 and enhanced for blind and visually impaired players. The primary functionality that has been added is that the chess clock speaks. All settings and clock times are spoken in English and the clock is provided with braille buttons. The choice of yellow and black has been made consciously as visually impaired players can often perceive the best contrast with this colour scheme. Special anti-slip rubber feet are placed underneath so that the clock stays firmly in place. As with the DGT 3000 the DGT Echo is approved by the International Chess Federation FIDE and can connect to DGT e-Boards and Smart Boards.
