i used to have a bread machine and it was wonderful. when unplugged and then plugged in again, it would reset to the default settings. mine would beep at the various points in time, and it would beep twice if other ingredients were needed, i.e. nuts. i cannot remember the exact operation of the machine, but it worked well. it goes through several steps of mixing, kneading and resting. and finally baking. i initially learned to make bread without a machine, but having a machine is not as messy. take care.

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

>> Hi, I'm thinking about making my own bread but not sure how accessible bread machines would be for totally blind people. Honestly I've never even seen one. :) Some of you say it can be done and some say it's impossible. Please would you give me the pros and cons?
