I have had my MPJA talking DMM fo4r about two years. I lost most of my vision about ten years ago. The meter and I have a love/hate relationship, but you would have to pry it out of my cold dead hands to get me to give it up. The meter has a bunch of scales that I will never use, but I have easily memorized the number of clicks to reach the ranges that I consistently use. The “off” position is at 12 oclock and is easily found by listening to the beeps as you approach the off position. It does not beep when at the off position. The voice is horrible, but after a while I began to understand what was being said. Getting it to speak a reading is somewhat “quirky” and unpredictable. Sometimes it will promptly offer up a new reading, while at other times, it seems to be tongue tied and it tries my patience. The meter seems to be rugged enough, as it has survived being dropped several times. I have tinnitus and a constant ringing in my ears. This prevents me from hearing the continuity tone on many DMMs, however this meter’s tone is loud and clear. It also has very little delay before indicating continuity. All in all, it has given me back my hobby of tinkering with electronics.

35042 TE Digital Multimeter
This is my go-to Digital Multimeter. The only thing that is missing is a carrying case or even a recommendation for one, which is why I didnt give it five stars!
Very good value and works within specifications
Everything on the meter tested within the specifications. The voice feature works well. Tested True RMS with both a sine and square wave at different frequencies and the readings were quite accurate within the meters rated frequency response, and actually at considerably higher frequency than specified. Excellent for a low-cost meter. There was a minor issue at first where the meter did not power up on all selector switch positions, but after exercising the rotary selector switch a couple of times, it was fine. Perhaps it was a little oxidation on the contacts. The English translation of the manual is adequate, but difficult to understand, and perhaps even impossible, in some cases. But I always respect the effort and there was obviously effort to make a thorough manual. Plus, a printed copy is provided which is convenient. The test leads seem to be reasonably good quality. For the price, this meter is a very good value.

Works great, I have ha no problems with readings or the talking part of the multimeter.
