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.

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.

Move to the address book.  Use Control f3 to move to it. 
Press alt and when the ribbon opens start tabbing.
You will find an import and an export item.  I don't recall the exact wording used.  If you have trouble finding it, ask here. 
 
As is common in e-mail programs, moving to or opening the item you want to work with and then looking through ribbons or menus, will show you items that are not shown when you are in another part of the program. 
 
To return to the main part of the program, use control f1.

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.

Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS

Cristóbal
 

The most awkward part of a treadmill I've found are the height of the siderails. I guess that may depend more on one's height (I'm 6-2 FT for exampel) and I've always found the gate you have to run or jog or whatever at to be unnatural since they're not higher.
Dout there's going to be anything reasonablly accessible beyond buttons on the display that you can mark up with Braille or whatever is your prefered method.
I've always been curious on whether there's something out there with bluetooh that you can access the various programs on your iPhone for example.
If there's some extension to adjust the siderails of a treadmill, then I'd be interest in knowing.

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 press gives a
beep. On the right is the speed buttons, up and down 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.

ScripTalk.

Carolyn Arnold
 

Amanda, the pharmacist at the River Burch Rite Aid here in Sanford was off yesterday, which she had told me that she would be. She said, that I had three choices, Braille, or one that they record in the lid or the ScripTalk, and we did agree on the ScripTalk.

 

She said that the chip has to be for the prescription from “the specialty store.” One of my two regular prescriptions is ready for refill, so she is going to get started on that. She said with the weekend being upon us and this being new to her, it could be into next week before we would know. She was so apologetic for not being able to just make it available here and now. I told her that I had not expected it and that was why I called before being close to being out of medication. So, we’ll see where we go from here. I’ll keep you updated.

 

Best from,

 

Carolyn
