RNIB was involved in the development of the box, but ultimately design
and speed of processor was chosen by the manufacturer.  Price point is
always a big consideration with consumer electronics.

It must be remembered that this box is the first development and
demonstrates that products can be made accessible at a relatively low

It is hoped that other manufacturers will include speech into their
products and that more advanced products will be given speech feedback.

For William's buzzing, check the scart cable. There may be interference
from the aerial too.

Freeview before the digital switchover can be of poorer quality but
should significantly improve when the switchover happens in your area.

The RNIB technology team is always happy to talk to customers and
potential customers regarding questions with products.

Please either email ict.rnib.org.uk or call 08459 000015.

The RNIB Hometech Volunteers may be able to help with installation and
set-up. Please call them on 08456 042341 or email g1volunit@xxxxxxxxxxx
