[access-uk] Re: SD cards and physical disabilities

Thanks, Ray, for your thoughts. I'm no expert but would have thought there's really a bit more to hold with the CF; but perhaps that is counterbalanced by the fact that the SD card is less likely to suffer if not placed absolutely correctly to start with.


Anyway, I hope, Chris, that you find a solution and it all works well for you.

Carol and others, this issue of the very smallness of SD cards came up
in the interview I did with the guy making the Vi-player who had
sourced a plastic container attached to a lanyard to help people in
situations who's handling ability was limited in holding and
manipulating these postage stamp sized cards.

If I can find out if these card holders can be bought  separatetly on
the net I'll let the list know.

I'd end by saying that, if anything, where gripping and manoeuvring is
not an issue, SD cards are maybe a bit easier to insert than, say, CF
cards, and no danger of multiple pins within host devices getting
bent.

Cheers,getting bent.

They are pretty small and flimsey, to be honest, though very durable.
I
guess, if you could ensure you have a table, so you have plenty of
surface
space should you drop the card, you may manage and then find you don't
need
the table;  but I wouldn't like to say for certain without having seen
your
difficulties first-hand.  Don't you have anyone who has one to show
you, or
a shop nearby that might help?  Failing this, I could find one to send
to
you as a trial if you like.

Hi all,
Sorry for the cross posting, but I'm thinking of buying an SD card
for my
BrailleNote mPower so that I can store Keysoft upgrades. However,
besides
the point, since I have some physical disabilities, cerebral palsy
to be
precise, that causes fine motor skill issues, how difficult are they
to
insert into one of these for me? This is the main reason why I was
put off
buying these because, by the sound of it, they're so small that I am
at
high
risk of dropping or even losing them. Thanks in advance.
