Re: microwave oven, push button model

I know that I, personally, have never used the stock headphones that came with walkmans, except for a TV/radio cassette model that they had made in the early 2000s. Other than that, I used either Koss Portapros, or something that I would buy that sounded good. But what does this example of yours have to do with the subject? How do you know other people didn't want those headphones that came with the walkman? How many people did you actually ask? Pam.

And the smaller model is not all that small at 1.6 cubic feet and would
still occupy a large chunk of countertop space. This might be fine for a
family, but what about a single person? Why doesn't Panasonnic offer a
microwave oven in the 0.9 to 1.2 cubic foot size range that also has tactile
buttons? It's no wonder that the Japanese companies are struggling to
remain competitive in the appliance and consumer electronics businesses:
they don't make what consumers really want. I'll give you a case in point.
Sony makes a terrific AM/FM/Weather band Walkman portable radio that has
tactile buttons and is totally accessible. But they include a set of real
clunky over-the-head headphones that are uncomfortable and have mediocre
sound quality. They could have just as easily included a set of more
compact and better sounding earbuds for the same price or even less. But
Sony, once a leader in consumer electronics, has suffered from gross
mismanagement in recent years and has become something of a laughing stock.
Maybe if their management listened to their customers they would be doing a
lot better. And both Sharp and Panasonic are also struggling, and Sharp is
close to bankruptcy and plans to sell its consumer electronics and appliance
businesses to Voxcom of China.

Yes, but both of these Panasonic models specifically have keypads with
raised buttons. Although even the smaller model is somewhat pricey at $151.

The Sharp R-248BS is 0.9 cubic feet and 900 watts and sells for only $69 on Walmart.com. It has raised tactile buttons,as another list member has pointed out, but the difficult to adjust rotary knob for selecting cooking time is a real deal breaker , as far as I'm concerned.

Yes me too! But was not looking at it for me as I was thinking about others that really used a microwave to cook in not just to warm things up in. So that was what I was getting at not that we already had one and we did not need one that size but what you was really paying for in the microwave. You not really paying for the raised buttons but the size and wattage and features. It is not a matter if me or you need one but assuming someone out on the list need one and a larger size for cooking in rather than warming things up in. Which here again just for warming things up in a 1 cubic foot 1000 watts is more than enough. They can be gotten for less than 100 bucks if you shop around.

LOL well that was my other point. I don't need a microwave that large or powerful. I already have one that works fine so it would still basically come down to paying $188 for raised buttons.

I, Karunba!!!

2.2 cubic feet. That's more than enough room for some mac and cheese and a slice of pizza.

If you got the cash and the countertop to spare, enjoy..

But seriously, why would you want such a large microwave??? Do people cook turkeys in a microwave???

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.

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.

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.

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.

Michael <michael_boyd.70359@...>
 

$188 isn't too bad considering the lowest priced talking microwave model runs over $300. I would pay $188 for a microwave of this size, and the buttons are a huge plus. The one which I currently use is not large enough to even warm some things, and the buttons are a touch screen on which I use bump dots to mark. The people who wish to know where to get the clear labeling tape, the best place that I have found for such things is a web site, www.futureaids.com, also known as "The Braille Superstore". They always beat Maxiaids and the others price, and if you place a $10 order, the shipping is free. Takes a little over a week to receive your order.

I find the Touch Dots very useful for this type of labeling and have it on
the touch screen of my microwave. They are small clear plastic squares with
a little raised dot in the middle. sighted people can see through them and I
can feel them just fine. I put them on the one, three, five, seven, nine and
zero on the numeric keyboard. I also put markers on the start and stop and
on the cook.

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!

Yes, you can cook a turkey in a microwave. My old microwave book had directions for cooking a twelve pound turkey. We have always bought large microwaves. We don't want to be stuck for space, since I sometimes make casseroles instead of just doing stuff like scrambled eggs and frozen dinners. Pam.

Based on the description at least, it sounds as if it may in fact have

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.

Outlook, you hit Control N like in Outlook Express, but then you have to
Shift-Tab, then Enter, then Tab once to first name field. Then, you go
through the fields and will get to a point that says OK. Then you go, and
there is a file, where I always back out the last name then space once
and add it to the end. That way my contacts are lined up by first names
like they were in Outlook Express. You have to tab about four times to
the place to enter the email address. Then tab once more to the Display
Window to check the name and address. There are fields where you can
include other information like phone number, address, etc. When you have
entered all of the information that you want, you hit Alt-S for Save and
then escape.

Hi Everyone,
I know we are going to get into this, since we are talking about placing tape on a microwave, so here are some ideas.

Staples has clear plastic labels on a sheet. They are in two columns. They will not last forever, but they are easy enough to peel off. You can put the sheets in the Braille Writer, just as long as you start from the top most available label in both columns, before using the second label down the page. You can then cut the label to size, if you need to do that.

I have also labelled microwaves and other appliances with clear dymo tape.
There are Braille slates with slots in which to slip the tape, as well as a one line device to use with the Braille Writer.
Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat

But me myself and just speaking for myself I would not have a touch

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!

So I can understand that but how are you going to make a touch screen

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.

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.

Re: microwave oven, push button model

I find the Touch Dots very useful for this type of labeling and have it on the touch screen of my microwave. They are small clear plastic squares with a little raised dot in the middle. sighted people can see through them and I can feel them just fine. I put them on the one, three, five, seven, nine and zero on the numeric keyboard. I also put markers on the start and stop and on the cook.

Yes me too! But was not looking at it for me as I was thinking about others that really used a microwave to cook in not just to warm things up in. So that was what I was getting at not that we already had one and we did not need one that size but what you was really paying for in the microwave. You not really paying for the raised buttons but the size and wattage and features. It is not a matter if me or you need one but assuming someone out on the list need one and a larger size for cooking in rather than warming things up in. Which here again just for warming things up in a 1 cubic foot
1000 watts is more than enough. They can be gotten for less than 100 bucks if you shop around.

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.

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.
http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-NN-SN973S-Stainless-Countertop-Technology/dp/B00XHE4Q38
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.

Re: vr stream headphone jack question

Try inserting the jack in and out rapidly. Sometimes this will fix the problem. I only hope you haven't damaged the problem further by using the WD40. This putting the jack in and out repeatedly might take a while but it has for some, fixed the problem at least temporarily.
 
Good luck and let us know if it works.

Hello,
 
I have a vr stream taht is having problems with the headphone jack.  I have done what the local repiar center that is approved of by Humanware to handle repairs on the vr stream in my local area said to do (namely, spreay some WD-40 on a Q-tip and inert and then remove it from the headphone jack repeatedly.
 
That has not corrected the issue, so I purchased a new set of headphones and those do not work at all in the player.
 
Any other suggestions?  It is A version 1 stream, so I do not know if humanware will even look at it, or if they will just say they do not support that model any more.
 
Thanks

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.

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.

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

Yes me too! But was not looking at it for me as I was thinking about others that really used a microwave to cook in not just to warm things up in. So that was what I was getting at not that we already had one and we did not need one that size but what you was really paying for in the microwave. You not really paying for the raised buttons but the size and wattage and features. It is not a matter if me or you need one but assuming someone out on the list need one and a larger size for cooking in rather than warming things up in. Which here again just for warming things up in a 1 cubic foot
1000 watts is more than enough. They can be gotten for less than 100 bucks if you shop around.

2.2 cubic feet. That's more than enough room for some mac and cheese and a slice of pizza.
