Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS

Walter Ramage
 

Hi. All the powered treadmills I've encountered (except for those in a gym) had arms on either side of the running deck and you can hold them to keep you in position. I've had no trouble in this regard. However there is one thing to keep in mind and that is the length of the running deck. If you have a long stride or wish to run on the machine then it is important to get a treadmill with a long running deck otherwise you will find problems with staying on. Also, all treadmills should have an emergency facility that stops the machine in the case of a mishap. self powered treadmills are a different animal though and it would be wise to be sure there are grip handles on the machine for your own protection. 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
users, but I'd ask about that as well as the actual controls.

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.

Hi All:

Since getting to a gym is a hit-&-miss for me, I want to purchase a
treadmill for use at home! I need one with tactile buttons that I can

Anyone in the house have any recommendations?

Regarding ease of using the XM app, frankly I dislike it primarily because I am not able to use all of its functions.  Others are able to do more with the app than I am.  I can however find the channels I want.  But you need to know about another app called Radium which I find considerably easier to use.  You still have to have the XM app on your device, but the search field in Radium is easier to use.  For example, since I am a Cubs fan, I just type the word "Cubs" without the quote marks into the search field, and I find "Chicago Cubs home town play by play."  If I type in the word "giants," I get two responses.  I can choose either the New York Giants football or the San Francisco giants baseball feed.


Incidentally, before anyone asks, Sirius XM will tell you that the going rate is something like $14 per month.  You can usually negotiate with them.  I terminated my service for a couple of years after the merger after which I got a please come back letter with a very attractive monthly rate enclosed.  I renew each six months at which time I tell them that I will renew only if they continue the same rate.  I tell them that I can get good deals from Pandora, Spotify or Apple Music, but I would like to keep the XM because of the games.  But I won't pay full retail.  Thus far they have always gone along.  I hope that doesn't change.  If it does, I will change to tune in radio.

James, in answer to your question, although I have an XM radio, I much prefer to listen using my iPhone as an internet radio.  The sound quality using the iPhone patched into a good amplifier is far superior to that on the XM radio.  I assume that the reason is limited over the air band width and far too much compression.

OK, several things to look at:
what is your location to the airport?
do you require an external antenna?
what is your budget?
do you want a hand held model or base station unit?
would you want to program it from your computer?
if yes do you have a Mac or windows PC?
is that all you want to listen to?
if yes why not get a dedicated aircraft radio? [I did and it makes a big difference]

Last year I tried NFL game pass and found it very irritating. I then tried the Tune In premium and it is not perfect but definitely better. The problem is, it is not cheap. I actually have great luck with the Pro Radio app and have been able to listen to just about any game I wanted. another choice is the Free football site on your computer.

Your suggestion of Tunein is a good one.  I have an XM subscription which costs me a bit more than $9 per month which gives me all NFL,MLB, NBA and NHL games plus all of the other XM content except for Howard Stern which in my opinion is trash.

Ron, you would be much better off,and much happier, using Tune-in for the NFL games.  It will cost you less, and you'll be able to access the gamesmuch easier.  A premium subscription to Tune-in is $7.95 a month.  You also get the MLB games with that, along with music and audio books.  Hope this is helpful!

Hi Group,
 
 
I used to subscribe to NFL Game Pass until last year.  Last year the accessibility of the site decreased markedly and the fee increased five fold.  I am not concerned about the fee providing I can use the site.  I tried subscribing this year again and had the same results.  Has anybody successfully subscribed to this NFL Game Pass feature and if so, can you give me some pointers as to how to do it.  My banking information has changed since then and I can't even find the link to change my subscription information.
 
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello A.Mac:

There's no such app as the best notepad for any device. Whatever works for
you becomes your trusted app.

You may need to check the Playstore, there are a plethora of notepad apps
there. Two common ones are: OI Notepad and AccessNote; the latter comes
from the A F B if memory serves. GoogleKeep is another notepad app that
several blind Androideans have used successfully. The choice of a notepad
app depends on what you are trying to accomplish.H

help with windows live mail on a windows 10 dell laptop.

Mich Verrier
 

    hello all. a few days ago I got my new dell laptop. what I got was the following. Dell 15 inch laptop with a full sized keyboard, i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 1TB Hard Drive, a CD ROM Drive and a 4 year warranty with a copy of Microsoft Office. my question has to do with windows live mail. I am able to read my messages in my in box just fine but I want to have it set where it will read the person who is sending the message, then the subject, and have the red messages at the top and have the un red near the bottom. on my laptop running windows 7 and windows mail I have the messages set in descending order like this and I find it works quite well. I am a bit annoyed with having to use the ribbons and not being able to navigate as smoothly as I can under windows 7 do to this but if some one can please help me with getting this set up like I have outlined above then that would be grate. many thanks. from Mich. 


Re: TREADMILL WITH TACTILE BUTTONS

Walter Ramage
 

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

Hi All:

Since getting to a gym is a hit-&-miss for me, I want to purchase a
treadmill for use at home! I need one with tactile buttons that I can feel.
Anyone in the house have any recommendations?

I would submit that you  contact the NFB and charge the NFL of being inaccessible! I would be happy to be on that particular class action  suit! 73 Heather

talking forehead thermometer question

mcLeod stinnett
 

the one i have now is fine except i would rather have a clock then the surface temperature. there is one at amazon, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008DVRIIU?keywords=talking%20forehead%20thermometer&qid=1449165127&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
the description sounds like a blind person can't set it up independently. $22 is a good price but i would like to be able to set the clock, anyone have another one they like, preferably forehead, thanks
