Are there any accessible Televisions?

Most mainstream televisions available today have accessibility features and tools built into them which help to make these devices accessible for people who are blind or partially sighted.

Panasonic, Samsung and some other manufacturers include a built-in Voice Guidance feature in their latest digital televisions. Voice Guidance works by announcing on-screen information like channel names, numbers, television guides, menus, upcoming and recorded programs, and various settings.

Some televisions from manufacturers like Sony, LG and a range of others have the Android operating system preinstalled. These televisions include accessibility features like Talkback for speech and closed caption subtitling. The Android operating system also allows access to the smart features of a television like catch up and streaming services.

Separate add-on devices like Apple TV and the Amazon Fire TV Stick also have accessibility tools built in which enable access to video on demand services and TV catch-up apps. These devices do not show standard broadcast TV.
