[access-uk] Re: Tvonics Freeview Talking Recorder

I would love to have something similar for Virgin Media, but this does look
very good.

Might well be tempted to get one while I wait for Virgin, which might be a
very long time.

I wouldn't bother hanging around too long for Sky.  I spoke to them the
other day at length about their accessibility and was told that there is not
much going on certainly in the foreseeable future about an accessible sky
plus or HD plus box.  Certainly not with speech.  And, actually, they are
not free.  If you look at the simplist and most basic package for around £19
a month.  Over a year, that's £228.  How much is the TVonics box?  £189 from
the RNIB?  I rest my case.  It's very subjective William but I've been a
loyal sky customer for many years but have now decided to jump ship.  I'm
disappointed with their view on accessibility and lack of commitment.

love it. Pretty much every feature speaks apart from the BBC Iplayer. The
box is of course upgradable so it may well be possible for Tvonics to make
the Iplayer speak.

the box is accessible. The speech is smooth and responsive, you can add,
delete and edit timers, You can series link tv/radio programs and much more.
When fast forwarding and rewinding you have audio feedback as to how far you
have moved through the program.
