Comcast in the US has designed a new TV box and software which provides spoken feedback for their blind and visually impaired customers to browse the TV guide, change settings on the box, schedule shows to be recorded, know which recorded show they're watching, etc. Combined with televisions from Panasonic that have similar speech for changing settings on the television itself, blind people in the US are able to do everything someone who can read the screen is able to do. I would love to see Telus introduce a similar system to Optic TV so that blind people like myself can take advantage of all the features our TV packages come with.
