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

Quite often repeated presses of the play button will get the main feature 
started.  Navigation to extra features and suplementory material is a menu 
driven affair.  Try and find a unit that also has the transport buttons on 
the front as well as the remotre, that way you aren't stuffed if you loose 
the remote.

Hello Tony,

Thanks for your reply.

It sounds as if I'm not going to be lucky to find an accessible DVD player
then.  Have you had any luck at all in playing DVD's without sighted help,
or is everything totally inaccessible?  By the sounds of it, a menu must
appear on the screen whenever you put a DVD into the drive, and this menu
can be totally different for each disk you try to play.  Is this correct?
So there isn't anything as simple as a play button on DVD remotes as there
is on remotes for VCR's?

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has found a way to play DVD's
independently.  I know it can be done on the PC, but when using a player
hooked up to the TV, it doesn't sound promising.

Thanks,

Caroline.

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.
