Re: Question on using DVR

Ah, Jim, you pulled a fast one on me. I replied to you, but didn't know you had 
coded the jfw list into the sender address. So now you have my off-topic answer 
to your off-topic question, on the JFW list. Clever.

But in hindsight if you do use a web browser to program your DVR then you'd be 
likely using JAWS to read that web browser.

  Jim,

  If the DVR has a web interface that sighted users can access to remotely 
program the DVR, then it may be possible for you to do the same, right from the 
same room.

  Check the Blind Cool Tech site for a Podcast someone produced about the idea.

    Subject: Question on using DVR


    Hi everyone,

     

    I know that perhaps this isn't a subject that directly deals with this 
list, but this is also a list made up of blind people who always help one 
another out with new things.

     

    So, here's the deal.

    I just got a great deal on phone, Internet, and TV.  The TV is with 
DirectTV and part of that comes with a DVR.  With the latest technological 
advances, is it possible for a totally blind person like myself to use a DVR 
with any sort of ease?

    I know that some can be managed via a computer, and if that's the case, how 
well does something like that work with JAWS?  Does anyone know anything about 
this?  What about an IPhone?  Does anyone know about that?

    If this is the case, then I'll keep the DVR.  If not, then it probably 
doesn't make sense to have it, does it?

    Please share your thoughts either on or off list.

    I apologize for the subject matter.
