Thanks, Veronica. I appreciate everyone's input. 
Just a thought, but, maybe the DAN could be the 
initiator of such a thing? A page with reviews of 
the accessibility, or lack thereof, of various 
equipment needed by Diabetics? Just sayin. I'd be 
up for helping with such a thing, too, where I 
could. I'm not just suggesting a thing and leaving 
it up to others completely. ;-)

Strive On!

You beat me to it, Mike. I sure don't know of any 
such place containing
reviews of all pumps by blind people. But it is 
absolutely worth inviting a
bunch of different reps to visit you and let you 
play with their pumps. Just
as sighted people are, we all have different ways 
that make sense to our
brains and one person's Heaven is another person's 
nightmare. <grin>
And your discussion changes if you are looking to 
wear a continuous glucose
monitor at the same time. The Medtronic isn't more 
accessible than any of
the others that are out now so there's no harm in 
having a snoop. If you
want more contact with some of us who use other 
pumps, just feel free to
ask. Happy snooping.
