[access-uk] Re: PURCHASING A TELEVISION

Hi Saqib, as Ibrahim has already pointed out the soundtrack is invariably turned down, in the case of the AD I've heard considerably so. If you can't understand how this could be unacceptable for people consider this. If a member of your family starts talking in a loud voice when you are listening to a programme would it not be unacceptable to you? They don't put soundtracks on TV and film purely for the benefit of blind people you know. Soundtracks are just as important to sighted people. They have the same right to enjoyment as you.

                   John.

Hi John I'm not sure why you think that there may be an attitude problem on
my behalf. AD doesn't disrupt the program or the quality of the viewing so
it's not to much to ask for it to be turned on. If I was the sighted member
in my family then I would switch it on with out any objections.

I'm with you entirely Derek. Saqib, sounds like there's a bit of an
attitude problem there. Don't your family count with you?
                   John.

Hi Saqib

So are you saying sighted people have no right to say no to AD?
Should the blind  come first  if so why?
Regards, Derek

HI Dean you've got every right to watch TV and take as much info in as
possible as long as AD is available to the programs you watch. I get
members

of my family complaining about AD and I tell my children either they
watch
the program as it is or leave the room and me in piece. It does the
trick.

My Parents bought a Techwood TV from Morisons, 32 inch I think and it
also

has audio description.  Never heard about it before that so a nice bit
of
luck there.  I haven't had much to do with it though as it is a family
TV
and I don't think AD would go down well with everyone.

At 14:16 30/09/2009, you wrote:
If you want audio description then all sony and Panasonic models have
this

built in although they rarely say so in the product descriptions even on their own websites. I've just spent quite some time confirming this with
both companies.

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a TV and am at a loss regarding accessibility.
Can anyone point me in the direction of guides re what to look out
for, from the point view of accessibility when purchasing a
television? I want something capable of receiving free-view with
controls/remote control which isn't a nightmare to navigate
around.

Any suggestions gratefuly received.

Thanks,

Kevin
