>> I just got this two days ago and I am looking for a manual for it now. I haven't gotten to use it yet, but it doesn't have a timer to set on it from what my sighted friend has told me. I am not sure yet on many things about it. They say it will beep when it is done so don't know if  when you close it up with the ingredients in it, it will start to time it and then beep when it is done or what. I know they said it will be when finished. grin. It has a button to push if you want the bread to have a lighter brown crust or a darker one, so guess that would be to cook a little longer for the darker crust. smile.  I will let you know when I get it all figured out myself. grin.  Katie

Like stop start, lighter or darker buttons and some other ones. You can feel them well enough and I don't see why it should be so hard, even though I haven't tried it, but from every thing they are telling me about it once it is marked or I can remember which button is which there shouldn't  be a problem with that part. From what the recipes that  I read to make different  kinds of breads with it,  it tells what ingredient to put in when and etc. Then close the lid turn it on and it dose the rest. So why wouldn't a totally blind person not be able to figure that out?  It doesn't sound hard to me and I cannot see what I am doing either. grin. Katie
