Regarding accessible range???? Just have it marked for your temps, you don't need an accessible range, if even such a thing exists. You make your accessible to you. I have markings for the temps, as mine is a dial range, but I used to have a touch panel. I brailled little arrows for the up and down. On those when you press the Start, the oven should start at 350, and each arrow press up or down changes the temp by five degrees.
As for the burners, mostly turning the dial clockwise starts out on high, then moves to low as you move clockwise.
As for the thermostadt, is there a way to put some common-sence accessibility to it? Or, is it a smart thermostadt that requires something like Alexa or Google home to run it.
The current thermostadt we have is levers, so was easy enough to mark.
I checked with the Be My Eyes app for initial assistance with the stove when we moved in last year, and I think I just asked someone else regarding the washer/dryer and furnace then marked accordingly.

Hello everybody, I need to know if you are aware of any specific accessible thermostats and ranges? A couple months ago I moved into tax credit housing and they do not know how to get a accessible thermostat! They also don’t know how to accommodate with a accessible range. They are more than willing to work with me, but they need the make and model number for some devices. Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.
