Use screen readers with the Apple TV app
Screen readers let you control the Apple TV app without seeing the screen. You use buttons on the smart TV or device remote to move around the screen, and listen as the screen reader speaks each item you highlight.
When you highlight an item, the screen reader speaks the item and any associated text. The screen reader also speaks text areas on the screen, such as movie descriptions.
Turn on screen reader functions
Turn on the built-in screen reader on your smart TV. See your smart TV user guide for more information.
Navigate the Apple TV app using a screen reader
As you navigate using the smart TV or device remote, the screen reader speaks each menu or text item you select. To move to a new item in the Apple TV app , do any of the following using your smart TV or device remote:
Move your selection in a list: Press the up, down, left, or right button.
Move to a tab in the top menu: Press the left or right button to hear the name of the menu item, then press the center button to select it.
Move to an item in a grid: Press the left or right button to hear the name of the item, then press the center button to select it.
Speak a text description: Press the up, down, left, or right button to navigate to the description.
When you reach the edge of an area on the screen, the screen reader says, “End.”
