As Monte stated, you would need a sym card for that, although you could use
something like what's app to communicate which is similar.

I would think that if you have no sim card, you have no cellular service.
Do you have an account with a carrier?
Do you pay a bill or buy time?

Hello,


I don't have to type in my password every time. Gmail opens up when I go to gmail.com and if I want, I can set it up to be one of my homepages so it opens as soon as I open the browser. I can also adda desktop shortcut to it if I wish, so that it opens when I go to that shortcut on the desktop. I don't know what you mean by ruined the computer. It is pretty difficult to "ruin" a computer so that it can't be used, and even if she did somehow ruin two computers, which I doubt, that has nothing whatsoever to do with why one should or should not use webmail over an email program.

 

Thanks.

Re: GMAIL AND I, HMM?

Hello,

When I use Gmail in standard mode with the built-in shortcuts, I often forget that I am using email on the web. Gmail with keyboard shortcuts is fast, accessible, and allows me to do what I want to get done with no fuss. As an example, I can press c to compose a new message, up/down arrows to move through my message list, enter to open a message, r to reply to a message, f to forward a message, etc. Once you learn the keyboard shortcuts, using Gmail on the web is fast and efficient. I am not telling you that it should be what you use, I am stating what I use and why, as well as how it benefits me. For me, it is efficient, fast, and allows me to be as productive or more productive than I otherwise could be with email clients. I do not use basic HTML because navigating email in basic HTML is simply not as efficient.

Thanks.

There are many advantages to IMAP. When your computer dies, all the messages with IMAP are stored on the server, not on your individual machine. Pop works, but IMAP is much more versatile.

Hi All:

Now it's my turn to have to deal with GMail configuration so I can read and
respond to E-mails received from it using Outlook. As part of GMail's
recommended configuration, I read the following:


Go to your client, like Microsoft Outlook, and check these settings.

Incoming Mail (POP) Server
pop.gmail.com <http://pop.gmail.com>

Requires SSL: Yes

Port: 995

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server
smtp.gmail.com <http://smtp.gmail.com>

Requires SSL: Yes

Requires TLS: Yes (if available)

Requires Authentication: Yes

Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

What should the SMTP Port Number be?

I am about to change the Security thing with the hope that I can get things

Outlook seems to be sticking. Thanks for all help!

Thanks sir. I did turn on the Less Secure thingie, ran a
test and got the necessary confirmations. I had created a
GMail folder as the repository for anything GMail. I would
like for all mails sent to my GMail address go to the GMail
Folder. This is necessary because I am working and
collaborating on a project and I don't want the E-mail
exchanges getting lost in my current busy InBox!

And yes, POP3's just fine for the time being! It looks like
I'd have to set up some rule parameters, but an extra
pointer will be graciously appreciated.

I did try reading the E-mails on the web; I do in fact have
my interface set to Basic View; for reasons my foggy brain
can't shake a stick at, Web-based E-mail has never been a
firm terrace and turf for me. Much thanks!

Also, if you have a ge microwave, they have a tactile overlay that you can order for free if you have the model number of the microwave! My apartments use ge microwaves and they ordered the braille over lay. But, you have to have sighted assistance because the stupid guide is in print; at least they tried! So you know the sighted person did not think about the blind person who lives alone, they assume that they are blind so they must live with a sighted person; sie! Heather

Hi,

Norma thank you for posting this I’d never heard of this product before it’s neat to know that it’s available.  I wonder if it comes with a cheat sheet to orient people to what all the shapes mean once received. Thanks again for posting these. Even if it doesn’t fit the use case scenario of someone at a given time it’s always good to know such things exist for when one’s needs might change or when one encounters someone who could benefit from such a thing. I appreciate you alerting us to this product.

Take good care.

HALOS Clear Tactile Microwave Stickers

Item #: 461115

Price: $8.45

These clear tactile self-adhesive stickers are shaped to identify the function of various buttons on your microwave oven

These stickers are designed so that Blind or visually impaired individuals can feel the most regularly used buttons on their appliances. For example: the

start icon is a triangle shape, stop/cancel is an X shape, defrost is a water droplet shape, and power level is a stair step shape.

HALOS stands for Home Appliance Labeling and Overlay System. It is a system of shapes that represent different appliance controls such as start and stop.

These tactile icon stickers adhere to your touch surface appliances so you can identify the location AND function of the buttons by touch.

I posted a question on the product page of the microwave that I am interested in.  A customer replied saying that the membrane is flat.  However, I will phone Amazon’s Disability number tomorrow morning and double check.  And, maybe they will find what I need.

 

Now, I have a new query. What options are available for marking a smooth touchpad?  I would rather pay for a quality product that will stay on the touchpad than buy something that will just make a sticky mess.

Hi Group,

Adding to what aply and Gerald have said: after you find the Panasonic model (or whatever other model) fits your needs, you can call the Amazon disability line to make sure you're getting what you want. They are very helpful there and if you ask them to describe any graphics or pictures concerning any device of appliance, they are more than happy to do so.

If you need the disability line phone number, the number is:
1-888-283-1678

Hi everyone,

 

My stupid microwave just stopped working.  Its almost 6 years old but I didn’t need another strain on my budget quite right now.

 

What I had was a Panasonic 2.2 cubit foot oven with inverter technology.

 

It had raised lines on the touch pad so I was able to use it without sight or sticky tabs.  Or, what ever you call those things.  I never have liked braille dots or sticky stuff on a microwave because it just eventually comes off  And I think it looks tacky.

 

So, does anyone know of a microwave, preferably from Amazon that has lines or bumps or buttons so I can use it.  Something around 1.6 to 2.2 cubit feet.  The inverter technology is awesome so I will go for that again.

 

I will be extremely grateful if someone knows where I might find what I want.

 

Maybe some of you already have a microwave with buttons or lines on the control panel.  If so, please find out the brand and model.

 

Many thanks,

Re: been told I am on a snap chat account but I never opened such an account

Donna
 

Being there is no photo., email address or phone number to link you to this snapchat profile,  there is no way to confirm whether the snapchat was created by someone who happens to share your name or by someone who setup the snapchat account who saw your name & decided to use your name instead of their own name. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to have the profile removed.  Why a person would choose to use a name other than their own, there are a hundred reasons why. Im not sure how snapchat works..Could your friend send the person a friend request, so she could get a full view of the profile? Being able to view the full profile may reveal info that is hidden from non friends?

Is there some place on facebook that somehow opens up snap chat or puts you on their list somehow? I use Jaws and windows 7, and have seen nothing on facebook that would directly say that anything I did signed me up for a program I'll never use. Is there any way, short of filling in a user name and password that I don't have, of getting off this thing?

Disney plus streaming service early review

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi everyone,
Well I did it! I subscribed to disney's premium service, disney plus and got the apps, the first premium service in nearly 25 years! And it was easy and amazing! The website, which I used from my iPod touch in Safari web browser was very easy to access. It took only a few minutes to sign up. And once I was signed up and installed the app onto my iPod touch, the app was automatically installed onto my apple tv streaming box as well. So I just paired my bluetooth keyboard with my apple tv, quickly, so I could enter my user name and password faster, and get access to disney plus, even faster than using the apple tv touch remote.
Disney plus has tons of tv shows, both old and new at launch, way too many to list here. So I won't even try. When you play a video, all navigation commands are accessible with well-labeled buttons. I can easily switch languages on movies and also turn on and off descriptive video. The iOS app is also very accessible. And the best part is that with the iOS app, I can download my favorite shows and take them with me if I will be somewhere without internet so I have something to watch. I have not tried it yet, but I imagine the descriptive video and language audio tracks also get downloaded when you download a movie or tv show. Disney plus is a great premium service. They have new modern disney stuff. But then they also have all the good old classics from the disney vault, many of which you may not have heard of before. I highly recommend disney plus! And also feel free to share this review with your friends, pass it on to other email lists, just please share it! Disney plus could take over netflix really soon I think!
