[access-uk] Re: Looking For Advice On DVD Players

Hi caroline.

I'm totally blind and live alone, so don't get much access to help with dvd
players.  I must say though that I've got a Pioneer dvd player and have been
able to access extra pretty successfully.  It can be quite a tedious and
fiddly experiment, but you can't really go wrong with a set of arrows and an
enter button.  I'm not sure what my newest dvd player model number is but
I'll try and find out in the next couple of days and get back to you.  This
dvd player will also sometimes remember where you were on a particular disc
so if you take it out and put it back in it remembers where you were.  I
think there may be a time limit on this though.  I only listen to music dvds
so maybe you might want more from a player than I do, but I was very
hesitant about the whole thing but was surprised at how relatively easy it
was for me to access features without sight.

Jill.
