[access-uk] Re: Sky Talker

Why can't the disability rights people do anything? I know, its been said that the folk at sky say that we can all press a butto and all that but which ever way you look at it their menu system isn't accessible.

Hi List.

I've just had an e-mail from the accessibility folks at Sky which acknowledges that they are indeed in talks about making some kind of accessible EPG available in the future. However, more disappointingly, the e-mail goes on to say that there's no time scale for this available at the moment.

So, good news that something's going on in regard to accessing the EPG etc, but how long we have to wait for that development is at this time unknown. Guess I was just being a little to optimistic in hoping that I'd hear something along the lines of within the next six months, for example. Although of course, we shouldn't rule that out either I suppose!

As updates go, its not much of a one, but at least we know something's being done.
