Accessible Setup Experience for Sony BRAVIA With Google TV

Location
Grand JK  
Description
In this joint session, Sony and Google will discuss the importance of empowering independence for all users, and how they collaborated to make the setup experience of Google TV devices more accessible to screen reader users. Being able to perform tasks independently is important to many people with disabilities. Sony TV team has been conducting user research with blind and low vision users since 2017, and one of the most frequently requested features is the ability to turn on the screen reader from the beginning, supporting independent TV setup. We will introduce the new method of enabling TalkBack screen reader at the beginning and the research that went into the design.
