The microwave will alert you to the cooking time remaining (every 10 seconds if the time is less than a minute; every 30 seconds if time remaining is more than a minute; and a countdown when only 10 seconds remain) and tell you when the time is completed.
The time remaining is displayed on an LED display.

There are no complicated menus or features. You just select the cooking power, the minutes and the seconds and press Start to cook.
Use the Power mode button (this is the only button without tactile dots and has the letter P printed next to it) to choose cooking power.
Set the time using the minutes button (the letter M is printed next to it and the button has a single tactile dot for identification), and the seconds button (found below the minutes button, printed with an S and with two tactile dots).
Below these, there is a rotary dial to adjust the volume (choose from 15 levels, the microwave will announce the volume level as you rotate the dial). Press the dial to start cooking (press and hold the dial to reset the microwave). The dial has a V printed next to it and the words START, RESET raised on it.
You can pause any cooking or defrost cycle by pressing the START rotary dial. To restart the cycle, just press the START dial again.
