Also, there is Blind-T:

This list is called Blind-T in the spirit of the lists Blind-X and Blind-L.
The T in Blind-T is for Technology, which means screenreaders and anything
else technology related is the goal for our discussions.
The T, in the name can also be thought of as toleration.
So if topics go astray, that is okay, we can tolerate that.
But what this list won't tolerate is flaming,
we all have enough to deal with in our day to day lives, so just treat each
other with tolerance and respect please.
Also, let's not have any political or religious discussions here, as
everyone is entitled to his or her own beliefs, and such discussions on a
list will soon turn into flaming.
Unfortunately, this list also won't be able to tolerate audio/video or
sharing, unless it's open source software, sharing of other than open source
software must be shared off-list.

So let's all help this list to grow and be a great resource to all!

I am not telling anybody what they should or should not do, but if you
want to keep the moderator wannabees from getting their panties in a
bunch, there is a Tech Talk list that would be a good place for this topic.

From my experience, the insignia TVs that have fire TV included are not
worth the money. They seem to have slow processors and fire TV is slow and
unreliable. You are better off getting a fire cube or fire TV stick and
connect it to a TV.

Hi All,
We are looking for an accessible smart TV.
Perhaps smart TVs might be all we can get new any more.
Wal-mart has a lot, some Philips and Roku TVs.
I'm reluctant to get a Roku, because I have a Roku stick device that is
similar to
the Firestick, but the TTS is terrible, and I would not want to deal
that deplorable voice in the TV menus.
But I want to be able to access the TV menus and set up input options,
scanning the antenna and selecting HDMI lines too.
Can anyone make any suggestions?
