Hi,
 
I have installed the Sky app on my iPad. it's totally inaccessable using
Voiceover. The app doesn't start up with Voiceover running.

        This may be of use to some on the list.

            Broadcaster lets users control their Sky+ box through an iPad
            Users can change channels without having to find the remote
            Will let users use Twitter and Facebook to share what they are
watching
        It turns an iPad into a giant Sky remote, letting users change
channels, record programmes and even rewind shows.
        HOW IT WORKS
         
        The Sky+ box is connected to a home network via either a cable or
wireless connection.
         
        This allows the iPad, which must be connected to the same network,
to 'see' the TV box and control it.
         
        Alongside this, the update will also allow Sky customers to see
what's stored on their Sky+ planner and make changes without interrupting
their TV viewing.
         
        'A new design meanwhile makes it even easier for Sky customers to
use the app to set recordings of their favourite shows over the following
seven days, scrolling through the whole week in the TV Guide and selecting
which shows they want to record,
        which they can do either by episode or entire series,' Sky said.
         
        To access the full range of functionality through the revamped app,
Sky TV customers need to have the new look Sky TV Guide on their
        Sky+HD box, and to make sure their Sky+HD box is connected to the
same
        broadband network as their iPad.
