Accessibility feature request

Please add voice guidance to the new optic TV evolution where it will read stuff out loud for people who are blind or visually impaired. Shaw has been doing this on the newer blue curved TV for a while now also, please allow us to make the guide larger font so we can see it. Thanks.

Hi @Harpreett 


The new TELUS TV Digital Box has a screen reader built-in, leveraging the Android TV TalkBack service. You can turn this on by navigating to Settings --> Device settings --> Device Preferences --> Accessibility. 


There are also other configurable accessibility settings here, including closed captions, where you can change the text size and colour/background combination. You can also enable High-contrast text, which highlights the font in the user interface. 


I will pass back the feedback about guide font size to our development team, but hopefully the screen reader and font contrast helps a bit.

Those options will definitely help me. Hopefully the box will be available to existing customers really really soon.
