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


Yes basically what Tony has just told you is correct

For anyone attempting to run a DVD player without any sight at al there would be problems, You have to be able to see some of the things on the menus to operate the player successfully. As the menus vary considerably from one disc to the next the operation of the system would be quite difficult.

To answer the second part of your question, about restarting the film where you left it on the last occasion you watched it, some more costly players, like the one that I have will restart on up to the most recent 41 discs that you have played without any difficulty, but this player cost around £200. You probably wouldn't get anything like that on a less pricey player.

Hello,
I have not found a dvd player that is accessable without sightted help, as for the other questions some models can store the possition of the last 10 or so dvds you have played and when you put the dvd in again it will start at the point that it finnished at when you took it out, some will only remember where you were last time you watched it if you do not take the dvd out of the machine and some will start from the beginning every time you turn on the machine. Dvds all seem to play in differant ways some will play through from beginning to end once you have started them and others will need restarting from the menu when you want to play a differant programme.
Best wishes, Tony Pearce.

Hello,

I am interested in getting a DVD player to hook up to our TV and would like
to know if anybody who already has one has any particular recommendations
for accessible models. Is it possible to play DVD's without being able to
see the TV screen. Also, if you stop a disk and want to resume it in the
same place at a later date, is there any accessible way of doing this? And
finally, is the method of playing DVD's always standard, or does it vary
from one DVD to another, depending on the way the disk has been constructed?


Thanks,

Caroline.
