Actually, if we're speaking specifically of the U.S. dollar bill
identification, the best one out there is LookOut by Google. Grab it here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.access
ibility.reveal

This app does much more than just dollar bill identification. And, it does
get regular updates compared to any other similarly situated app at the Play
Store.

Also, there's a virus checker app called LookOut. So, when you search for
this app, be sure to write out the name completely: LookOut by Google!

Re: Question about a W D Smart ware external drive

I never said everyone else does.  I’m saying that you can’t assume that drives in general vibrate enough to be detected.  I don’t know how many do and how many don’t.  You may have tried detecting this with a few drives.  How many  hundreds or thousands of mechanical drives are there?
 
and I’m not saying how many you can detect.  I’m saying that you don’t know and can’t assume based on a small number of drives.
 
Therefore, what I’m saying in conclusion is that if someone can detect vibration on their hard drive, that tells them that they have a mechanical drive.  Not detecting vibration doesn’t tell the person anything because we don’t know how many drives produce so little vibration that it can’t be detected or can barely be and not certainly.

You may very well have good sensitivity, but that doesn't mean that everyone else does.  I have both the Western Digital and SeaGate drive in various models in 1, 2 & 4 TB sizes, probably 10 or 12 in total.  You can feel when any one of them is running or not, and this goes for the several that have bit the dust in the past.  There is not an HDD external drive I've felt yet I couldn't tell if it was running or not and this includes Hitachi and Toshiba HDD's.  But, as you say I haven't seen them all , or felt them all , but that doesn't mean they all will.

This is all a matter of how well your sensitivity to feel / touch is.
 
The only comparison I can give is to try holding or lightly squeezing a flashdrive, and you won't feel anything because they're SSD, so to speak.
 
If you hold an SSD external drive like the Western Digital or SeaGate HDD's it's very noticeable in comparison.  But, as I said, depending on an individual's sensitivity to feel / touch.

Re: Question about a W D Smart ware external drive

Monte Single
 

HI list,

 

 

I have 2 external u s b hard drives, a 2 t b Toshiba, and a 4  t b w d passport.

When I lift them a few mm of the desk, I fell them spinning,  if any data is being processed.

That’s how I know it is safe to disconnect them;  nothing is happening.

These are u s b powered mechanical drives I am talking about.

 

Cheers,

 

Mont

 

P s,  the 2 t b Toshiba Canvio drive is now 8 years old.

Very  low mileage;  I’ll see how long it lasts.

It's very simple. If you are a registered NLS patron regardless of whether or not you are registered with BARD, all you have to do is call your network library and request a currency identifier. It is not necessary to fill out any forms. Like the DTB player, they will send you one which you can keep as long as you need it.

Re: Question about a W D Smart ware external drive

I’m nnot sure you can generalize.  My hard drive produces so little vibration that I’m not sure if I feel any.  Iff you do , then the question is answered for your drive.

Hi Janet,
 
Monte explained the spinning drive, but an SSd has no moving parts, so you would feel  nothing if you were to hold a working SSD drive.

Hi Monte,
May I please ask you what is the difference between vibration and humning on a passport? So, if I hear humning on my Passport external drive, what will that tell me, Will that tell me if my Passport is a SSD or macanical drive?

Hi Sharon,

A western digital my passport drive can be wither mechanical or s s d.
As I wrote earlier, do you feel any vibration or hum from the drive when you connect it to your computer?

I have not read all the posts about the money reader, but I have already changed the two batteries in mine since receiving it, and now it works perfectly.

It's very simple. If you are a registered NLS patron regardless of whether or not you are registered with BARD, all you have to do is call your network library and request a currency identifier. It is not necessary to fill out any forms. Like the DTB player, they will send you one which you can keep as long as you need it.

Perhaps before proceeding further, you shoulde contact hyour library.

Also, on this page where you download the form, the following is stated:

https://www.moneyfactory.gov/uscurrencyreaderform.html

The application must be filled out completely, signed by a competent authority who can certify eligibility, and returned to the mailing address provided on the form.

Text on the page says the following:

Applications, available in English and in Spanish, can be downloaded here.



That, along with no fields that can be filled out by a screen-reader strongly implies that you are supposed to print it and return It by mail.

How does a blind person fil this out?

When I hit enter on the form it opens a PDS in edge. There are no edit fields, as Edge is a reader only I assume.
