Or it might be more appropriate to say that wehn performing an upgrade, the latest official release will always be installed.

Re: ScripTalk.

Mike Thomas
 

No, Walmart corporate mandated if a customer requested scriptalk, they will
put the equipment into your store. I was the only one requesting it, and
the pharmacist at my walmart had a devil of a time getting all the bugs
worked out. They finally did, and then I went to a mail order pharmacy that
now provides my meds with scriptalk. I bet the Walmart pharmacist in my
rural locale is blessing me.

I haven't used the calculator. The Revere is way trickier to talk as much, more so than the Haven was. However, it is way more battery dependable. Sure is hard to get it all, isn't it?

Right top, Options menu.

Middle square, regular menu.

The speaker button is right under the right top button and above the End/ power on/off.

Send is right above the 1.

Above the 2 is the delete, but if you hold it down long enough, you get Voice Command.

I read an article a while back that compared treadmills for blind runners. The control panel was a big concern, However, Staying centered on the actual treadmill was the biggest problem. It's hard to run holding on to a bar. Some people tied pieces of rope along the machine so that they could get a feel for where they were on the treadmill itself so they didn't fall off of it.
I'm not sure what has been done to make treadmills safe for blind users, but I'd ask about that as well as the actual controls.

Hi. It all depends on how much you wish to spend and where you are

I have a reebok z9 treadmill. The programmes are not accessible but
on the arms on the lift is the incline up and down buttons and each

and again, each press gives a beep. With the up and down speed
buttons each press increases your speed by .1 mph, so 5.2mph, 5.3mph,
5.4mph etc. On the screen there are buttons for all the functions but
they are only slightly raised but it would be difficult to tell which
is which as there is so many so I got help to place a little ball of
bluetack immediately above the 3.7mph button, the
3.2
mph and a third but I can't remember the speed. Also there is start
and stop buttons. When you press the start button you get a five
second countdown before the belt starts moving and there are 5 one
second beeps leading up to the start of the belt. The deck can fold
up to save floor space when not in use. It has nearly a 3hp motor
which gives it lots of power. It also has a 3.5mm socket to plug in a
mp3 or other media player and it will play through the treadmills
integral speakers but I never use them as I'm not impressed with the
sound quality. This treadmill is not cheap as it was nearly £1000 but
I got it here in the UK from Argos which was selling them at half
price. It is a great treadmill and I'm thinking of moving up to the
reebok z10 which is also going for less than half price.

Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS

Gerald Levy
 

The reason why a manual treadmill might not be suitable for a tall user is that the deck is rrelatively short, about 42" in length, which would make it somewhat difficult to walk or jog for someone with a long stride. But because I'm on the short side, about 5'5", it works very wellfor me. If you can find a manual treadmill with a long deck, then it might work for a taller person. Another advantage of a manual treadmill that I neglected to mention in my previous message is that it is safer than a motorized treadmill, especially for a blind user who has difficulty walking or jogging without holding on to the hand rails. On a manual treadmill, the belt only moves when you move and stops when you stop. So there is no danger of flying off the back of the machine if you let go of the hand rails as on a motorized treadmill.

self-powered. You simply step on the deck, hold onto the side rails and
start walking or jogging. I have a Phoenix 516 Easy Up manual treadmill
which I jog on every day for about 30 minutes. In place of the electronic
monitor, whose LCD display I can't see, anyway, I have attached a small,
clip-on fan to keep me cool while I'm working out. To me, the biggest
advantage of a manual treadmill, aside from the great workout it provides,
is the fact that it has no motor to break down. Once the motor dies, you're

almost always totally screwed because most low-end treadmills such as those

made by Icon Fitness, which includes the Reebok and Nordic Track brands,
have short warranties, and so there is no way to repair the unit after the
warranty expires. And try moving around a bulky, heavy motorized treadmill

that weighs over 100 pounds. If you set it up in your downstairs basement
and it craps out, how are you going to get rid of it unless you hire an army

of body builders to haul it upstairs for you? On the other hand, a manual
treadmill usually weighs only about 40 or 50 pounds and is much easier to
move around and should last for years with normal use. But even if it does

crap out eventually, it's no big deal to replace because you can buy a
decent manual treadmill for under $200.

Hi Everyone:

Crist óbal, a dear friend wants me to come over and take a look at the Sol
F63 which he recently purchased. This guy is sighted and DOES NOT care for
non tactile stuff. He asserts that his treadmill does have tactile
buttons.
I hope to visit with him over the weekend.

I've been reading copiously about the Sol treadmills. Indeed, the ones
from
Sol are bluetooth-enabled and do work with smartphones based on what I've
read. Sol does in fact have apps for both Android and iOS. I'll write
myself a note to check the side rails for height adjustment.

Walter, I could not track down anything on Reebok Z9 here in my village.
Perhaps it's a model not sold here. The search goes on and I look forward
to reporting my findings sometime soon.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS

Walter Ramage
 

Hi. Some treadmills only have a bar or hand grip in front of you so you need to hold on with your arms stretched out in front to hold it. Others, normally the domestic type have a rail or arms either side of the running deck at about waist level and you can hold them as you walk (this is a more natural posture). When I used to go to the gym the treadmills had a bar or two grips in front and I found that a bit tiring after walking for an hour. In the Gym I used the treadmills were crammed together with little space between and a treadmill with arms on either side made the machine wider than the treadmills without and would have taken up more space in the gym. Walter.

I read an article a while back that compared treadmills for blind
runners. The control panel was a big concern, However, Staying
centered on the actual treadmill was the biggest problem. It's hard to
run holding on to a bar. Some people tied pieces of rope along the
machine so that they could get a feel for where they were on the
treadmill itself so they didn't fall off of it.
I'm not sure what has been done to make treadmills safe for blind

leading up to the start of the belt. The deck can fold up to save floor
space when not in use. It has nearly a 3hp motor which gives it lots of
power. It also has a 3.5mm socket to plug in a mp3 or other media player
and it will play through the treadmills integral speakers but I never use
them as I'm not impressed with the sound quality. This treadmill is not

I don't remember if the manual does. I did not mention, that the middle button is sort of square, and the top and bottom and sides function like the little dotted arrows on a Haven, if you've ever had one of those.

I haven't used the calculator. The Revere is way trickier to talk as much, more so than the Haven was. However, it is way more battery dependable. Sure is hard to get it all, isn't it?

I'll send the attachment off line.

I don't have a Pod cast but:

Top Left used mostly for message reading (you'll need to turn on speaker when you open text). Also you use it, if you want an answered call to go to Voice Mail.

Right top, Options menu.

Middle square, regular menu.

The speaker button is right under the right top button and above the End/ power on/off.

Send is right above the 1.

Above the 2 is the delete, but if you hold it down long enough, you get Voice Command.

I have a manual and can send it to you off list if you want that.

I didn't exactly struggle learning my Android phone, but it wasn't a walk in the park either. I like it a lot, but I still type using my external braille display keyboard. I would definitely prefer a dumb phone with only a send and end button and no convoluted menus, like we used to have.
But those no longer exist. Still, you can do a lot of things with your smart phone, once you get the hang of it.
