[access-uk] Re: sky talker very latest gospel truth

Better than the magazine though, I seem to be on some kind of weekly
highlights email list. More timely, more accessible. Email the
accessibility team, I'm sure that's how I got on there though I didn't
ask for it.

        well, I don't know where you get the audio magazine from, I have
been trying to get it for the last 10 months at least, and still haven't
got it yet.

                Hi William.
                 
                Clearly you are disapproving, this isn't for you and
clearly you feel that it is inadequate.  I feel the same way, but
sometimes we have to shrug our shoulders and accept that some
accessibility is better than no accessibility.  This product was
probably designed to cater for the needs of many people, not just the
totally blind.  Market forces will decide whether this is a success or
failure, but one thing I am certain of is that if we scoff and criticize
without giving constructive feedback, they might just shelve any further
developments on this whole concept and leave us exactly where we are
now.  I've been a sky digital customer since the service launched and I
can tell you that things are a lot better in terms of accessibility than
they ever were when I joined, for instance no accessible customer
service, no audio description and no accessible TV guide or accessible
sky information portal and certainly no audio magazine.  Sometimes we
just have to accept that developing products that cater for the needs of
many is the motivation behind the biggest companies as they've more to
gain by that than by catering for the needs of a handful.  I could go on
in this vein but I've better things to do.
                 
                All the best, Ibrahim.

                                Thanks, Damon.  It sounds like it will
be an expensive ornament.  I'm struggling to see what it will do.

                                I've got a mate at Sky who tells me that
the new Sky Talker doesn't read the EPG, it won't let you record, it
actually can't tell you what channel you're on but it does tell you if
your television is on or off. But not if you've got HD.
