Hi again,

Here's a short, amusing & NSFW demo of the functionality from 
someone
who clearly doesn't know that much about accessibility...

 Hi all,

 I just stumbled upon this
 
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202
042100
 article describing a screen reader for the Fire TV & Fire TV 
stick devices.

 I haven't had any experience of this yet but I'll be purchasing 
/
 repurchasing one this weekend to report back.  If this works 
well it
 could be huge, given that the Apple TV is up to 10-times more
 expensive than a Fire TV stick in some configurations.

 Has anyone given this a go yet?

 Cheers,
 Ben.
