[access-uk] Re: Tvonics Freeview Talking Recorder

So have I, and was informed it'll be with me Tuesday or Wednesday of next
week complete with Braille instructions.  It is being sent by courier due to
its cost.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

I have just ordered the talking freeview box and was told delivery will be
seven to ten working days.  Also, braille instructions are not currently
available, but should be available soon.

can you watch any channel whilst recording paul, or do you have to watch a
channel in the same multiplex i think it's called as the one you are
recording?
hope that makes sense :)

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.

The box is of course upgradable so it may well be possible for Tvonics to
make the Iplayer speak.
