Have you heard any more about the Sky Talker, please?  

I rang Sky today and they have not heard of it!  Obviously not ready for 
release if the disabilities departement have not been told of it, I would

Thought some of you may be interested in this info that I received from offcom.

Dear Francis


Thank you for your email. We contacted Sky and it passed on the following 
information to us:


"We are in the final stages of development of a product currently called the 
Sky Talker.  We hope to be able to launch this product in April 2010.  It has 
been developed in conjunction with the RNIB and translates some of the text on 
screen to audio which is obviously of great assistance to visually impaired 
customers.  We would hope to be able to issue a press release raising awareness 
of the imminent launch later this month and as said earlier have the actual 
product in market in April 2010.  We will also be briefing our internal 
customer service teams on this so that they are able to directly respond to 
customer queries such as this.  This product would help with Sky+ navigation.  
It is very much the start of our development in this area. We hope to be able 
to share detailed product information shortly"


We hope this information is of use.


Kind regards

   Central Operations, Broadcast Team Leader
