Thanks for this Steve. Yeah it's this kind of info that I was looking for. I'm 
not sure if I'm going to spend that much money if the device doesn't have a 
true accessibility features that built into it but will see. Thanks again.

  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 :)
