Simply press 555 on your remote control
Available at Channel 555 on the majority of Freeview Play devices, the new Accessible TV Guide is a dedicated area designed to make finding content simpler if you have accessibility requirements, or if you’d prefer to use an enlarged, talking TV guide.
Quick and easy to navigate
The accessible TV guide has been designed for viewers with visual impairments, with a high contrast UI, screen magnification, and a text-to-speech functionality.
Upon selecting Channel 555, you will be asked for your preferred accessibility settings from the below options:
- Use Text to Speech for on screen navigation
- Show only programmes with audio description
- Show only programmes with subtitles
- Show only programmes with sign language
Browse your favourite shows and select what you want to watch
Selecting the Audio Description, Subtitles and Sign Language viewing options will filter the TV Guide to display shows that are available to watch.
Once your preferred viewing option is highlighted press OK to select it.
Your settings will now be the same every time you come back to the guide on channel 555.
