Hi Amro

I guess it depends what you mean by accessability.  I'm not aware of any actual 
DVD players with accessibility features built in other than perhaps being able 
to enlarge the font display unless you look at software based players such as 
power DVD or Win DVD.  In terms of ease of use, I've recently bought a new 
player after fighting on for ages with a ridiculous cheap DVD recorder from 
Tesco.  This is a very top endish player from Dennon called the DV2900.  
Originally costing £800, it plays all DVD formats and CD formats including SACD 
and DVD Audio.  You can pick them up second hand now for around £200.  They're 
built like a tank with all the controls being widely spaced apart.  All the 
controls are themselves nice big chunky buttons and the main transport controls 
are laid out very much like a CD player.

I generally just hit the play button when I put in a DVD and find that that 
usually works 99% of the time.  This was very hit and miss on my old player.

Anyway, hope that helps.

  Hello folks,

  I'm in the market for a new DVD player. So, is there any of these that has 
any sort off accessibility features that are built into it? I'm not holding my 
breath but thought I'd ask anyway :)
