Hi again,

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

 Hi all,

 I just stumbled upon this
 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?
