Fighting with my TV

I am afraid that more often than not, I get into unsolicited scraps or fights with my poor old TV.  Why?  When I am not sure whether it is on or off. 


How so?  Well, cable may have gone and there is no sound to tell me what is going on.  The screen may either be blank or there is a message on it that would tell a sighted person what's happening but I can't tell.  When I press a button on my remote; if I inadvertently press an incorrect one, then I am not sure which channel I am at.  If my remote decides to be in a bad mood and does not respond when I press a button.  Now, I may think that maybe and just maybe, the batteries are weak or better still, the keypad of the remote may be wearing down but still; I am never sure. 


I am not sure if there are any remotes out there that would enable me to have more control; I mean accessible remotes where I can hear what button I press.  Maybe someone can help me out?


I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and urging you to go out there and share my blogs with each other.  Visit www.nfb.org to learn more about how blind persons interact with remotes plus more.
