Clive, Channel 5 or My 5, is awful on phones as well as PCs.

All the best

Hi all, How about Channel 5 accessibility. I seriously struggle with this on my 
Windows PC (Windows 10, bouncing between Jaws 16 and latest NVDA. Has anyone 
tried the C5 vcatch-up? How much faith can I realistically put in the RNIB 
campaigns team to take up the general issue of poor accdess to catch-up 
services provided by TV companies outside of the BBC?

Best,
Clive

Totally agree with you Jackie. I wrote as well with similar results. 
It is one of the benefits of an Android phone.

Hi Yusuf

Yes looks like that's exactly right.  I checked iOS earlier and it is 
nowhere to be seen yet either.  It's shameful quite honestly! I've 
written to them a few times, along with many others, but clearly ITV 
doesn't think it is important enough.  In the grand scheme of things 
it isn't, but it would be nicer to follow a programme with AD included.

Kind regards,

Last time I checked Jackie, I couldn't figure out how to do this 
either and don't think it is currently possible. It appeared that the 
only way of watching catch up TV with audio description from ITV was 
to use the Android App.

Has anyone used the ITV Hub on a PC before and, if so, how you find 
programmes with Audio Description?  When I go away, I generally take 
my Amazon Fire tablet as the ITV Hub definitely carries AD.  But I was 
thinking of taking my laptop to cover everything I need instead, but 
haven't found anything on the ITV Hub online which points to AD.

Thanks for any pointers.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown
