When it comes to watching television, there are many large screen options available, along with universal remote controls that have large buttons. When choosing a television, consider an LED TV, which offers more vibrant colours and sharper contrast.
Some televisions now come with built-in voice guidance. Voice guidance speaks aloud onscreen information using text-to-speech technology and enables blind and visually impaired viewers to control their TV by voice, for example, changing channels and searching for programs.
Digital radios provide very clear sound output. There is now a wide range to choose from including those with large print, large buttons and high colour contrast.
