[access-uk] Re: PURCHASING A TELEVISION

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.

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
