Yeah, I've heard second hand of this.  I think it is a bit inconsistant.

oh, ok.  maybe I misread.  I was udner the impression that it would turn it on 
and off after the initial setup.  Oddly enough in the initial setup, I didn't 
even have to do that, it just kind a turned on and stayed on.  Go figure.  LOL!

Take care.

I only know that it turns it on first boot, not that it is for a toggle. the 
user guide unfortunately does not speak to this but experience shows that it 
does not act as a toggle and no one said it did.  what was said that if vo is 
not working when you first start apple tv, press the menu button three times.  
I don't know why it doesn't work for you but it works for everyone else I have 
seen do it.

Oh, let me clarify.  I wasn't as specific admittedly as I should a been.

For one thing, there is no universal access setting.  It's settings, then 
general, accessibility, then voiceover, and you toggle it on/off.  No universal 
access.  Having said this though, he lies the problem.  It's not that 
voiceover's not on, I have vo talking and working.  My thing is, what I was 
trying to say was if I tripple click the menu button on the remote to toggle it 
on/off, that never works for me.

if you have someone sighted around, see if they can go into settings, universal 
access and turn vo on.

Nope, just tried again just to be sure I was not doing something stupid, and 
I'm definitely nhot.  I trippled clicked the menu key on the remote.  All I 
hear are the little bell bloof sounds 3 times and it saying in main menu, top 
movies.

I don't get it.  Yeah, the firmware's totally up to date, so, yeah, I'm 
baffled.  This really is somewhat bizarre, or am I missing something here.

By tripple clicking, I basically am saying Im doing like you would on an IPod 
or IPhone with the home key.

Hi there,
That sounds absolutely fabulous.  May I ask you how the  unit is activated so 
the blind can use it?  Is there a key combination that is used to get the unit 
to talk?
