So far I have been avoiding upgrading my TiVo Bolt DVR to Experience 4 because I could see no real difference between it and Experience 3 from the viewpoint of a blind user and the screen reader. Recently I was told by a TiVo support representative that the screen reader in Experience 4 doesn't check for activation as it does in Experience 3 before it reads anything on the screen. This has been one of my pet peves with TiVo for quite a while and if it is true would be reason enough for me to go ahead and upgrade to Experience 4. Is there anyone out there that can confirm or deny this? It should be easy enough to test, you would need a TiVo Bolt running Experience 4 just to be sure there are no behavioral differences between DVR models. First you would turn on the screen reader, 1 long press of the 'A' key on the remote will toggle it on or off, then browse around in your shows list to satisfy yourself that the screen reader is working. Now disconnect your Bolt from your network, this is easiest if you use ethernet instead of WiFi to connect your Bolt to your network. Now browse around the 'My Shows' list to see if the screen reader still works. Now let me know what you discovered. And don't forget to reconnect your Bolt back up to your network and to turn off the screen reader if you don't need it. Thanks!
