[BCAB] accessible telly

I'd like to know why the RNIB aren't pushing for better Freeview and Freeview play access, though? Why go for Sky and VM, both of
whom are the higher end of the spectrum in terms of cost? I'm not saying miss them out, but where's the focus on the lowest common
denominator? Why should those of us who just want to record normal, free-to-air TV be forced into using expensive large-screen TVs
or defunct boxes. It's 2017 now, why aren't we seeing built-in TTS in all the new Freeview and Freesat receivers as we do high
contrast?

Hi folks, thanks for views. John, thanks for your more detailed comments on
accessibility. It's clearly a general problem, Tom
