AMI-audio is a broadcast reading service, a network on which volunteers read and record full-text spoken-word versions of current articles from leading newspapers and magazines. The channel makes local, regional, national and international news available to viewers who are blind and vision-restricted, who have learning disabilities or have physical and motor-skill disabilities.
- To use AMI-audio, you need to activate the SAP/MTS on your TV. Your remote control should have a button that says MTS or SAP.
- You also can tune into the CBC News Network and AMI-audio service will be heard.
With the Voice Remote, Shaw TV subscribers can use voice commands to control their TV and search for content. This includes setting your DVR and searching for your favourite movies and TV shows by actor, title or genre. As well, you can access all accessibility functions, like Enhanced Text Readability and Audio Descriptions, using the voice command “Accessibility Settings.”
