I agree, Victor, and now, there even are vending machines with touch screens - looks like they are the future.

You might be right about some of these phones with keypad is not gaining any traction. I think the cited world has embraced touch screens and they see no need for keypads. We blind people will eventually have to adapt to that as I don’t think adaptive phones will be around for very long. Phones with physical keyboard will soon be a thing of the past. If you want that kind of phone, you will probably have to resort to eBay or some other auction site. Even then, that phone might not be compatible with your carrier. Sometimes we just have to do the work, break a sweat and learn new things. Whether it’s android or iOS, people can learn to use the touchscreens. Blind people should not be afraid of them.

Re: Kapsys SmartVision 2 cell phone

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Have you priced phones recently? I believe the newest iPhone costs about the same. You could actually buy the basic model for $580 and install third-party software to do the same thing as the advanced model. You have choices here, Gerald.

I'm not going to go into the whys and wherefores of the pricing of equipment for the blind except to say that because the market is small, the price can be higher than comparable mainstream devices. However, if one wants a device that is designed to meet one's needs, then that is the way it is. It has absolutely nothing to do with Hutz-pah. It has to do with economics. Hey, at least this phone runs a version of Android that is much newer than that of the notetakers.

Choice means independence and freedom. If you like touch screens, more power to you. I don't. I want something else.

Ann P.

Re: question about duolingo

Thank you so much.  I'm using internet explorer 11 and Jaws 2018.  I was contemplating putting it on my phone but I dictate everything and I wasn't sure if I could dictate words like I type them on the computer.  My friend says that there are pictures but it doesn't do me any good.  If you think I can use the app without having to type, let me know.  I also need to be able to spell the Spanish words character by character.  I use the arrow keys to do that.  Does that work in the app?  Thanks in advance.

La 12/11/2018 8:46 PM, wayne a scris:

Carolyn, I'm going to tell you about 3 possibilities of phones that would be just what your friend needs and is looking for. I'm also going to tell about the phones that I know that are available for some other carriers that I know of. Before I tell you about the phones, I just wanted to point out something that we all pretty much know, and that is sometimes the sales people don't know details and can't answer questions about when the speech is on the phone and in some cases they don't even know if it has speech that you can turn on. Though there's some sales people that are a bit more knowledgible, but since they don't use the phones with the speech on there's questions they don't know how to answer and part of that is because they don't use the speech. Now about the phones, if your friend wants to stay with verizon, there's 3 phones currently that are accessible with the text to speech, including the caller id, and the phones are
1. the kyozera cadence flip phone,
2. the kyozera duraforce a bit more rugged flip phone
and 3. the lg exaltflip phone. For some details about the keypads on these phones. The kyozera cadence keypad you can tell the difference between the buttons. In fact on the 5 key there's a dot in the middle of the key, and on the end key there's a dot  on the right side  of the key. The lg exalt keypad keys are easy to tell apart as well, and with the 5 key having a dot on the left site of the key and another dot on the right side of the key and the end key having 2 dots as well, just like the 5 key with 1 dot on the left side of the key and a dot on the right side of the key. Unfortunately I don't have the kyozera duraforce so I can't tell you about the dots on the 5 and end keys on that phone, though it's most likely like the cadence phone. We're planning to go to the verizon store to look at it. All 3 of these phones have the text to speech including the caller id. If your friend is looking to get a prepaid phone with verizon, presently walmart is selling the kyozera phone for $29. We've had the experience before, how chain stores  in one area may not have some of the same products as others, so hopefully your friend's walmart sells the cadence phone as a prepaid phone. I don't know if you could buy a cadence postpaid  phone at walmart which I don't think that they do. If she's interested in verizon postpaid her verizon store would most likely have all 3 phones to look at and purchase, the kyozera cadence, the kyozera duraforce and the lg exalt. Now for some accessibility details, besides the text to speech, in the accessibility area on the cadence phone, I found the setting for fant size, so one can adjust the print size, and in the acessibility area of the exalt it's called larger text that you would go into adjust the print. In the accessibility area on both phones, it has the tty mode, and the hearing aid mode as well. If your friend is into texting or typing in her own contacts, if she used the voice on the phone in  the options the different modes to capitalize letters, getting to the symbals and numbers is easily done on both these phones, which isn't the case on other models of flip phones. If she's with verizon, here's 4 bit older flip phones that have text to speech  with full read out including the caller id are, the samsung gusto 3, the samsung convoy 4 and the kyozera dura xv. The gusto 3 and the convoy 4 are 3g phones so due to 5 g coming out, the 3 g network will only be in use for another year. It's getting harder to find these phones since depending on these phones, some came out about 3 years ago and some came out 4 years ago, as far as these last 3 phones I'm telling you about. I'm not sure right now if the dura xv is 3 g or 4 g, but I haven't found it in any of the stores lately, but it too has full read out and the caller id. You would most likely be able to find these phones on amazon, and has for the gusto 3, laz sells the gusto 3 for for about $59. If your friend was on t-mobile another bit older phone is the candy bar phone the samsung t-199 which has total read out with the text to speech and the caller id.  The buttons are those rubberized feeling buttons that I find confortable to dial on and you can dell the difference between the keys. The other 2 current phones that I know about that have the text to speech, that I haven't seen yet are the kyozera duramax for sprint and the kyozera dura x e  for at&t, both these phones are the rugged sturdy phones, that I believe are the same as the duraforce for verizon. Soon enough I'll get around to the different stores to check out these 3 phones, the duraforce, the dura x e and the duramax and I'll be able to answer more questions and be able to tell more about these phones. Though from what I understand from both a sales guy at sprint and the sales guy I know at verizon, they do have the full read out text to speech. If anyone knows more about these phones it would be interesting to hear about them.
 
If your friend wants to use consumer cellular There's 2 flip phones, the doro from what I found out only talks the numbers, as far as what I understand so far that it doesn't have full read out for the options and menues to speak. A customer service person from consumer cellular had the doro phone to look at, and she was going through the menues, and as I said the only thing she could see that she could do was turning on the speech to hear the numbers. The voice for the doro was a pleasant male voice. She didn't know for sure if the caller id worked as far as the voice announcing the phone number that was calling. We couldn't test it since neither one of us could call the phone, nor could she call out on that phone.  The other phone is the acatel go flip phone that does have the text to speech. While it talks all the menues and options, when it comes to writing a text message the modes for the symbals such as period, comma and so on and the number mode isn't accessible to get too. You could hold down the pound key to capatilize a letter but the other modes that most likely show up from the pound key don't talk. That would also go for the email area, which does talk, but it's getting to those symbals and numbers when you need them. Unfortunately the talking id doesn't work in this phone, the acatel go flip. Both at&t and T-mobile have available the acatel flip 2, and I don't think the talking id works in those phones either. I had a prepaid acatel flip 2 for a prepaid phone, and I don't remember it having the caller id. I still have the phone but it's not connected now, but I don't think it did. If anyone has questions about any of these phones, I would be happy to answer what I do know, either on the list or off list. My email address is

Hi Troy,
 
Here you go:
If you want to make the AppData folder accessible you can try the following but, you will probably need Administrator rights to do this.
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue then type a single period, as you would at the end of a sentence and press enter.  This is a shortcut to put you into the User / Name folder.
2. Press, Alt + F, then press the letter, O, to open Folder Options, then Control + Tab to the View tab.
3. Tab to the advanced settings Tree Biew files and folders, if it's closed right arrow to open.
4. Press the letter, H, to go to Hidden files & folders open.  Down arrow 2 times to, Show hidden files, folders and drives, off , now press the spacebar to turn this to, On.
5. Down arrow to, Hide protected operating system files, recommended on, and press the spacebar to turn this off.  You will get a warning dialogue so, tab to, Yes, and press the spacebar to accept.  Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close Folder Options.  Note:  This will allow you to see all the files / folders but, to access / open some them you might need Administrator priviledges.
6. Now in your User / Name folder you are going to have a lot more files and folders.  to permanently unhide any  of these folders, if accessible, keep reading. 
The, AppData, folder should be the 2nd from the top right under, 3D Objects.  Highlight the, AppData, folder and press, Alt + Enter, to open the properties of this folder.  You should be on the, General tab so, tab to the, Hidden checkbox checked, and press the spacebar to uncheck it.  Now tab to, Apply press the spacebar, this might take a little time because it has to process a lot of information, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
If everything is accessible and works you will be able to access the AppData folder whenever you need to without going into Folder Options to do so.
7. Now remember to go back into Folder Options and reverse the settings you changed to make files, folders, drives and protected operating system files viewable, steps 2 thru 5.
Take care.  Go Rams!

I type out everything I want to remember. That way instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it was, I spend the time looking for where I saved it!

Hello, Last week I was not able to attend, since the room was already full.  Does anyone want to comment what they remember?  Will there be a podcast of it?

 

Thanks much!
