Yah I just want to be able to access menus and movie category and individual
movies. So, in addition to my I-pad mini and HTMI cable to connect to my
dumb TV, I need two other items to get, right? The TV fire stick and the
Voice View screen reader. And I take it that Amazon sells everything I need?
I'll check it all out and let you know how things are going.

Subject: RE: Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote
Yes, with the fire tv stick, you can access netflix and see categories of
movies, go through lists etc. When I first got the tv stick, sign in was not
accessible. Now it is, according to other blind people; since I got sighted
help for my initial sign in, I haven't had to do that again, so I can
personally verify it. My set up is wifi. I honestly don't remember how
difficult it was to do that sign in, because it was several months ago, and
I've gone through a lot of stuff in my personal life since then. Now the
fire stick has alexa as well as the voiceview screen reader. I don't use the
alexa much, but it is there. I also can't speak to Pandora accessibility,
since I don't use that service.
But netflix is good, better than on the apple tv, because it is better at
announcing the category or row of movie listings you are in.
