Washy Talky (no joke; that’s the name)

On the list of major appliances we wish had voice output, a clothes washer is a minor item.  But who can resist one that speaks in English, Hindi, and Tamil, and has such an amusing name?  It seems to have several other features that blind and cognitively disabled users — not its initial targeted market — will benefit from, including step-by-step instructions and automatic cycle selection based on load size and overall filthiness (not the filthiness of your overalls…).
