Subject: A Blind but National Question....

Good evening,

I have an oven that is about 16 to 17 years old and  time for updating.  It works and nothing is wrong but if I bake at high temperature, with the  plastic nuts the thing must get hot enough that the screws come out and the door to the broiler at the bottom just came off.  American Home Shield came out and repaired it but within a week it's back to normal.

The question is that  is there a place that has  more equipment  user friendly for the blind and visually impaired?   I sent out a message and a friend in Omaha sent the specs for  a range he spend 2 grand for and  it is one sale.  It is a Samsung gas range with broiler at the top, the five burner and griddle, self cleaning oven and a warmer tray for about $699/  I forgot about convection build within.  The problem came to my flying up to Home Depot since it was near me and  I discovered that the oven  section would have to be marked up like crazy, but mainly with the stuff I would use.

It had regular bake, roast, Convection bake, Broil.    I would have to marker the button for  oven cleaning and seems like something else.  A lot of stuff  like for pizza and such I would never use then a numeric pad then start at the bottom of the pad and stop and reset at the top of start.  I was going to purchase it  until all of this came up.  I got time.
I called Nebraska Furniture Mart with no luck and called Whirlpool direct with no luck.  I await Becky at Alpha Pointe to see if she knows of anything.......your thoughts?
