Hi Muzz and Richard,
The Virgin box itself is not usable without sight but for anyone happy to use an app the TV Anywhere app is very accessible and popular.
We are still pushing for integrated accessibility but in the meantime the app is pretty good.

The only way I know to circumvent this is to use the TV Anywhere app on an iPhone or, presumably, android.

The box seems to offer AD and all, but the actual menus remain inaccessible, which means it's impossible for me to navigate to edit settings, avail apps, or use the EPG. Is there anything I can do to make the TV menus accessible with the Tiwo box?
