Hi Veronica,

What websites do you find accessible for recipes and which screen reader do
you use?
Thanks,
Monte

Whenever I want recipes I look them up on the internet. In fact just today,
I found several recipes for ambrosia fruit salad which I have been wanting
to make. I do have quite a few cookbooks in Braille but we are on a budget
so can't afford to buy many of those any more.

Billy, there are a bunch of cookbooks around for microwave cooking. I have
a few, in ebook form, myself.

At the Walmart site, the bigger oven is no longer available.

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 how ever 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?

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.
