Hi Heather,


I would love to be able to do what you’re doing with the Fire Stick. Is there any way you can tell me more about the converter box you’re using? I would appreciate any info you can provide.

I use the firestick but, I do not have connected to a tv, I use a converter box and a set of speakers. I was reading about apple tv, seems they are at war with some tv content, I would check to make sure it meets your needs! Cheers Heather

Hello list

From a blind person's perspective this may seem like a stupid question.

During this lock down I stream many of the metropolitan opera house operas.

It is quite a pain with my fairly old tv and laptop to stream and now I

examine all kinds of products because my wife is sighted and she enjoys the

shows and we did not realize there are so many things from youtube that one

can stream. I looked at specs for the Amazon fire 4K stick and cube, the

Google Chromecast ultra and the Apple tv but all of them have things that I

like and things that I would want in the device. I have read the Take

Control of Apple TV book and the writer asks what I want to ask year: is it

worth while to buy an apple tv if one can buy a smart television with

Airplay2 and the apple tv app built-in. Here in South Africa I can get such

a tv for not very much more than an Apple tv. So, is there someone who uses

a smart television with airplay and if so, is it a workable better option

for a blind person?
