Talking Guide + Video Description

Let your TV guide the way

X1 includes the first talking guide, a voice guidance feature that gives customers with visual disabilities the freedom to independently explore thousands of TV shows and movies. The talking guide "speaks" what's on the screen and includes details such as program descriptions to help customers decide what to watch. Plus, with video description customers can hear audio narration of key visual elements in the programs they're watching.

Voice Remote

Say it. See it.

The voice remote provides a new level of independence to customers who have limited mobility or dexterity, or have a visual disability. By using simple voice commands, customers can change channels, search for shows, enable closed captioning and more. The voice remote also includes a backlit keypad making it easier to see the buttons in the dark.
