Jim

We do now have two talking TV set top boxes, so hopefully it shouldn't be
long before some manufacturer puts speech onto DVD player menus.  That is
certainly something which would help us a lot.  I have a portable DVD
player, but mostly use Power DVD on my PC, and of course, you can read the
menus with a screen reader.

Hi Sandra,

Its ok having AD on a DVD disk but in the ideal world (which we have never,
and probably will ever live in) we would need a DVD player that reads out
the menus on the disks.

If they can put in a speech chip into a Sat Nav to read maps for drivers
then it can't be too much of a leap to incorporate that kind of technology
into DVD or Blue Ray players.

Hello,
Audio Description needs to be activated via a set of menues on the DVD
itself. You need a sighted person to do this for you. Most of the time
a DVD can only be played with sighted help. I never buy DVDs anymore
because videos were the best. You used to simply put them into the
machine, pressed play and they would play. At least companies never
did this to CDs.

Very best wishes,
Sandra.
