What’s next for the Social Hub…?
The AT Social Hub is back with another session packed full of top tech trends!
Are you finding it hard to see your television and enjoy your favourite programmes? We have some tips and tricks to help. Our next event will focus on TV accessibility with SkyQ. We all want as many of our favourite TV shows and movies to be as accessible as possible. That’s why all Sky boxes come with a range of accessibility settings and features.
To help blind and visually impaired people get the most from Sky, they offer audio description for certain programmes, subtitled and signed programming for those who are deaf or hard of hearing and their most recent feature, Voice Guidance.
Voice Guidance is a screen-reader on Sky Q, providing spoken navigational guidance for people with a sight impairment. Voice Guidance speaks out items on the screen as you navigate with the remote control.
Voice Guidance is available for Sky Q menus, rails, grids, the TV Guide and the Mini TV Guide, Show pages, Voice search and On Screen Messages
As always, the Social Hub team will do their best to find the answers to any of your queries or quibbles. This session is also suitable for teachers, parents and assistive technology beginners.
