Furthermore, the talking calculator provides an unprecedented amenity for the visually impaired for calculating numbers. The sale of the talking calculator was phenomenal with tens of millions pieces sold in the world market in the following years that encouraged Ultmost to develop more advanced calculators later on.

Building on the success of the talking calculator, the Company introduced an assortment of talking products that could tell time such as watches, clocks, key chains, pens, etc. Their successes were immense, especially that of the talking watch, which was the biggest hit of Ultmost product lines. A worldwide recognition of Ultmost as the forefront runner of talking products followed.
