  • Include features that audibly describe certain on-screen menu functions to make them accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired; and

Using these devices, the blind and visually impaired may audibly access these essential functions on Set-top Boxes (STBs) / Remotes:

  1. Power On / Off
  2. Volume Adjust / Mute
  3. Channel / Program Selection
  4. Configuration – Setup

Under the FCC order, Skitter TV has taken steps to ensure that we can provide an STB that supports this capability to customers requesting it, in a timeframe comparable to that of providing a typical STB.

  • Subscriber Address, City, State, Zip Code
