YouView Accessibility Boost

YouView High Contrast Mode

YouView switch accessible mode using Grids of icons.

YouView Zoom mode over text to improve accessibility.

Very happy to learn that YouView are about to come good on their commitment to accessibility. Big improvements are about to be squirted through the pipe-lines to their excellent Digital TV/Internet TV boxes. These include the ability to use a USB keyboard, high-contrast menus, text to speech on the YouView App and most excitingly, switch access.

Of interest too, is a proof of concept Raspberry Pi brained Xbox 360 controller interface. There's lots of accessible Xbox 360 controllers out there now such as the Quad-Controller and my C-SID, so this could be a very nice alternative way in too.
