Yes, Laz,
I neglected to say the Blind Shell Classic works with dictation of email messages.
That's just because I use a p c for such activity,
...and that's just one of the way my brain/mind is compartmentalized.

Hi List,

The Blind Shell Classic is an interesting animal.
It has a combination of features that I like; First, it has keys you
can feel. Smart phone don't, there may be an exception.
Second, you can dictate text messages to the Blind Shell Classic.
So-called "feature" phones do have buttons, but you cannot dictate
text messages.
So, personally, I am living with a second-hand I phone 7 to which I
can dictate text messages, but it has no buttons.
When it comes to entering info, passwords, codes, card numbers, etc,
on a smart phone, I'm a clutz.

I would buy a Blind Shell Classic, but right now, it's just a bit pricey
given the difference between the value of the Canadian and US dollars.
Personally I don't care that the Blind Shell Classic does not have a
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Cheers, and live safely,

Oh yes, I did hear that the Shell does not have a browser.

Hi Olusegun,

I think that user installed apps is not a feature of the blind shell
classic; the blind shell classic does not have a browser.

Terrilynne, pardon me for being behind the curtains! I'm thinking you
have a smart toy of some kind like many of us in this space.

For the Breaking News you're receiving from your local radio station,
did you have to install an app on your smart toy?

If YES in the affirmative, you'll need to know whether or not you can
install your own preferred apps on the Blindshell toy because if you
can't, you'd need to weigh your options carefully with regards to
adopting it into your smart toy family. For me, to receive news from
the New York Times as an example, I must install its app on any of my
toys dedicated for such business.

A Push Notification, if enabled on a smart toy, simply alerts you when
there's something cooking with respect to an app that supports it.
I have the Robinhood app installed on my toys; I'm monitoring a few
stocks; so, each day as the market closes, the app pushes to me a
notification that lets me know how well the stocks I'm monitoring did
for that particular day.
Some E-mail apps support Push Notification and will work the same way.
