    We should not do business with any company that will not mail out products that do qualafy for free matter.  Tell them that they don't then we will go else whear.  If companies can't deal with the cost of doing business then they don't belong in business.  It's bad enough when companies that sell products for the blind refuse to provide us with accessable meterials such as manuals and catalogs.  They all do this and neither Acb or Nfb are doing anything about this.  They just don't care about real world problems of the blind they are a very big joke.  They have always been and will always will be.  Companies that sell products for the blind are proving that they really don't care about the needs of the blind they just want our money.  They are taking advantage of and they should all be very ashamed of themselves.  What a big scam?  They just can't comprehend that the majority of theblind are either unimployed living on ssi or ssdi income that barly pays for your monthly living expensive.  There is very little room for expensive products in their budgets.  Thats just reality but they will never comprehend that.  How many companies that sell products for the blind offer any monthly payment plans?  They want full payment and thats just not possible.  When I first applied to my local lions club for a reading machine they told me that it would take their whole anual budget just to pay for it.  This prevents the blind from achieving the independence that the blind truly want and they could care less.  I am not saying that we should get somthing for nothing but just work with us and charge a more reasonable price for their products.  Offer monthly payment plans and they will sell more products.  They have no business sinse.  There is a double standard here.  If we request braille we are told that the cost is to high and only 10 percent of blind people read braille anyway.  On the other hand they ignore the 70-80 unimployment rate of the blind and expect us to pay money that we don't have.   They are very selish and very inconciterate of our needs the very people they claim to be in business for.  I know that nothing will probably ever change unless the blind community as a whole demand change.  I doubt that will ever happen you just can't getthe blind to unite on any issue.  Just some food for thought for what's werth.

I don't know if your message is a valid warning.  Are users told in some sort of straightforward way that returning something will involve a restocking fee?  I purchase very little and I have returned nothing.  What is customary for those companies that specialize in dealing with blind purchasers?  Do they generally charge a restocking fee for returns?  How much?  Is this company within what is customary now? 

 

Aside from that, since all sorts of merchants charge restocking fees now, is the charge within what is reasonable for merchants in general?  Shipping isn't the question.  Restocking fees aren't based on shipping costs.  they are a cost imposed for restocking a returned item.

Are you saying that the business doesn't send things free matter if requested?  Did you make such a request with your order?  and is this a business specializing in dealing with blind people?

HI List,

 

I was doing a search to find alexa for my pc and the page said it was available in u s, u k, Germany etc.,  but it di not say Canada.

Is this correct?

Does  alexa run on win 7 through 10 and mac?

Thanks for your help.

Yo Bro,
 
Try the following:
1. While in Word press, Insert + V, to open Jaws quick settings.
 
2. Down arrow to, Editing Options, if it says closed press the right arrow to open.
 
3. Continue down arrowing 6 or so times to, New Lines and Paragraphs Indication, if this says, On, press the spacebar to turn it off. 
 
4.  Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Re: Thunderbird list?

Gerald Levy
 

Unfortunately, the owner/moderator of the Thunderbird list is a guy named Marcio who seems to have vanished into the ether.  He has not posted on the Thunderbird or any other lists for months, so there is no way for a new member to the TB list to get his first message approved.  To my knowledge, nobody else has taken over running this list.  It is possible thatMarcio is experiencing personal or technical issues that prevent him from moderating the TB list.
