For dyno tape I would go to places like staples, office depot etc, you may have to buy a package of 3 or 4 rolls, but you'll have lots for other tasks.

I haven't purchased transparent dymo labeling tape in quite some time, but most of the online stores that specifically carry equipment for the blind like MaxiAids should have it.

I personally can yes, but you could also buy transparent labeling tape which
is much thicker.

your fingers?

You could use transparent tape to mark the numbers which is what I have
always done anyway.

Possible and if you did not have visual people using it and you had enough
room to mark it without blocking the visual person view.
But me myself and just speaking for myself I would not have a touch screen
nothing unless it had speech to it as long as I am blind.
But the raised buttons in this case is not what you are really paying for!
It is the size and wattage and features.
I personally don't need a microwave this size as I don't cook in microwaves
I just use them for warming things up in. So a 1.0 cubic foot 1000 watts is
more than enough for me and yes you can get them under 100 bucks!

Even a touch screen based microwave would most likely have the keypad in a
fixed position for convenience which means the individual numbers could
still be marked.

So I can understand that but how are you going to make a touch screen
accessible ? Also it is the size of the thing as well. This is not a small 1
.0 cubic foot microwave. It is over twice that size at 2.2 cubic foot! Which
is a fairly good size microwave. It also has stainless steel inside and the
wattage is 1250 . So you are paying for much more than a cheap 1.0 cubic
foot microwave oven. Also Walmart has it for 159 bucks they are saying in
stock at my store.
I don't need a microwave at this time. But I am going to town and if they do
have it in stock like the website say I will be glad to take a look at it
for someone. See link to Walmart.

People can choose to spend their money however they see fit, but I am not
paying $188 just for raised buttons. And $188 is quite of bit of money for
many blind individuals.

Well 188 bucks is not bad for a microwave of that size especially a name
brand and if it has raised buttons you can feel and it can be made to be
fairly accessible. As microwave is becoming more and more un accessible to
us. Most of them is going to touch pad or touch screen and most will be
touch screen in the near future. I don't know what we are going to do as
blind people if they don't make it that all appliance must be accessible to
the blind. This can be done but needs to be done from the ground up. This is
say where all appliances should meet certain accessibility standards that is
produce say in 2016 . this will take the US congress and the president to
make this happen. It would have to be a law or regulation put into place and
if the mfg.'s did not meet that in all new equipment made in 2016 and after
they get a hefty fine!. Now the problem is making up the standards as well.
JMT!

Does anyone on this list actually own this particular microwave? If so, how
accessible is it? Does it have tactile buttons for the numeric keypad or
does it use a rotary knob like the Sharp R-248BS to set the cooking time?

Here it is on Amazon.

Based on the description at least, it sounds as if it may in fact have
raised buttons. Although at $188, it is rather pricey for a microwave.

While looking for a microwave oven, at Walmart we found a Sharp model
with push buttons and a selector dial. The dial has detents or
clicks to help in selecting. the model number is:

R-248BS


The oven is a bit small with 900 watts of power and a volume of point
9 cubic feet. The cost is $69 at Walmart and $99 from the Sharp web
site. If any of you want the manual, write to me and I'll send it.
