Subject: [bct] Info on my panasonic microwave

I purchased this microwave at best buy for $179. It is the > 
Panasonic microwave oven model NNT994SF. You can download a pdf file for 
this microwave.

It has raised push buttons instead of a flush pad for direct entry. After 
gale purchased his microwave he wrote this short help manual for blind 
people and poasted it to the blindtech list. The only problem I have with 
this microwave is aligning the turntable after washing it. It is hard to do 
because the star in the middle is so small.
See info below.
