Tim, unfortunately some people can’t, but I suspect giving them a hard time about it is unlikely to encourage them to learn.

Hi am not to pleased with this thing and have not even used it yet.  I really wish there was a e-mail to send my complaint too! So this is for the blind person who reads braille and they cant even be bothered to include a braille product guide to the unit! They are to lazy to emboss the serial number on the back of the unit however, the serial number is in print and the manual is in print too. So the catch was when I called to ask where the braille guide was, they in there infinite  wisdom asked me the blind user for a serial number. So I am not lazy so I had to pull out my app off my phone to see if it could read it. Apparently it was written on a shiny area on the back and I could not get my app to capture the serial number or the lighting was off who knows. So if you can put braille on the unit all over, why the heck cant you emboss the serial number too. I am blind not stupid I do not need it to say six dot all over the unit once was enough. So Who are the morons who provide braille items and still expect you to have sighted assistance in 2020? I am glad I did not purchase this thing, it was given to me as a medical device! A device I still cant use yet as I have to wait for snail male to get my embossed braille guide. Sie! Heather

In your case, that may be considered reasonable and other forms might not.  I don't know that much about how the law is interpreted or written.  But the message I responded to was making a blanket statement about reasonable accomodation, which is not correct.

I think it is a reasonable accommodation  as I am considered partially deaf blind and I do not get a lot of things threw audio. One of the reasons I was given a electronic braille labeler was because I have mussel weakness and needed a way to use braille. It was noted that, I do not use audio so I needed away to have braille as an alternative instead of say, a pen labeler that uses audio or the hand held labeler which my mussel weakness prevents me from using. I cant use that stupid prescription audio thing, I have to label all my stuff by hand!  So knowing this, how can I be given a medical device, as they coded it, without braille! Is that not why the social security was ordered to provide letters in braille format! I think it falls under the same thing. Heather

I doubt any law mandates that something be made accessible in that specific a way.  If it is accessible because a document is given that you can use, PDF or otherwise, even an audio file, I think that would satisfy the law.

So I called Logan  tec up in Dallas who wanted to send me to a site to download the pdf file. I insisted I get a embossed braille coppy. They are the original makers of the device which is currently sitting on my desk till I get the manual for it. I can only turn it on but, that is all I know how to do. I know what the different parts are but, do not know how to operate it. I am still waiting for my insureance to tell me where exactly they purchased the device from. I hope to get my manual tomorrow.

Hi all,

Heather, I'm glad you got your rant off your chest, but right this second,
it's only a rant. What is the name of this device? Who sells it? When did
you buy it? Who gave it to you? If we have this info, we can more easily
publish your problem on public media. If you received this item from rehab,
let them know you're dissatisfied and why.

This is an ongoing problem which I feel should be taken up by ACB and NFB to
get these companies like LS&S and Maxi-Aids to quit sending out items with
only printed information. Did you know that Humanware places its manual on
its products but does not provide braille hard copy, even for braille
devices like The BrailleNote Touch. Roger Behm is the *only* vendor of whom
I am aware that automatically includes a braille hard copy start up guide
and he can braille the manual for you too.

This kind of deliberate inattentiveness to the needs of consumers is
flagrant all over the place! The least these companies could do is include
a .brf file in an email. Heaven forbid they should actually include hard
copy braille instructions and serial numbers for a "six dot braille labeler"
Hello?

Yet some of you are willing to let the sighted teachers and rehab people
convince you that you don't need braille any more. Braille is outdated,
they say. Yet a consumer can't even read a serial number on a product
specifically designed for use by a braille reader. C'mon guys, c'mon, we've
got to stop this. It should be against the law to sell a product
specifically designed for braille readers which doesn't include a braille
manual and all the pertinent information in braille.

Re: 6 dot braille label maker

It is not a violation.  If the information can be made properly accessible by providing a document or an audio file that the user can access in some other way, such as a computer, that satisfies the law.  the law isn't specific as to what making something accessible is.  there is no correspondence such as, if you sell a Braille display, you must furnish Braille documentation.  Reasonable accomodation is the phrase and that doesn't mean a specific correspondence.

On the braille me, the cursor works by blinking the unused dots in the cell. For example, if the cursor is on the letter b, dots 1-2, then dots 1-2 stay raised up while dots 3-4-5-6 are blinking. Or you can turn off the blinking, clear the display temporarily and show only the cursor, when you are done looking at the cursor, press backspace plus space together to get out of that mode. And yes I find the braille me to be very very user friendly.

Re: malware bytes tray application

Are you using the free or paid version?  I don't know if you can or should get rid of it if you are using the paid version, using real time protection.  If you are using the free version, set it not to run at bootup, then exit the program.  I haven't used the program for quite some time and I haven't worked with settings for even longer but someone can tell you how.  You don't have real time protection with the free program so it doesn't matter if it runs when you aren't doing a scan.

Heaven forbid they should actually include hard copy braille instructions and serial numbers for a "six dot braille labeler" Hello?

Yet some of you are willing to let the sighted teachers and rehab people convince you that you don't need braille any more. Braille is outdated, they say. Yet a consumer can't even read a serial number on a product specifically designed for use by a braille reader. C'mon guys, c'mon, we've got to stop this. It should be against the law to sell a product specifically designed for braille readers which doesn't include a braille manual and all the pertinent information in braille.

Hi am not to pleased with this thing and have not even used it yet. I really wish there was a e-mail to send my complaint too! So this is for the blind person who reads braille and they cant even be bothered to include a braille product guide to the unit! They are to lazy to emboss the serial number on the back of the unit however, the serial number is in print and the manual is in print too. So the catch was when I called to ask where the braille guide was, they in there infinite wisdom asked me the blind user for a serial number. So I am not lazy so I had to pull out my app off my phone to see if it could read it. Apparently it was written on a shiny area on the back and I could not get my app to capture the serial number or the lighting was off who knows. So if you can put braille on the unit all over, why the heck cant you emboss the serial number too. I am blind not stupid I do not need it to say six dot all over the unit once was enough. So Who are the morons who provide braille items and still expect you to have sighted assistance in 2020? I am glad I did not purchase this thing, it was given to me as a medical device! A device I still cant use yet as I have to wait for snail male to get my embossed braille guide. Sie! Heather
