ArticleINSTRUCTIONS & INFO

How it works

When you turn the accessibility feature on, spoken words let you know what text is onscreen when you:
  • Scroll through carousels or enter a title or information about a program or movie.
  • Tap to open tabs like My Library, Guide, or Discover.
  • Select a program from the guide. You’ll hear the name of the program and when it’s airing.

Availability

You can get accessibility features on:
  • AT&T TV device
  • Apple tvOS
  • iOS (iPhone and iPad)
  • Android (phone and tablet)
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Samsung Smart TV (2017 or newer)
  • Roku
They aren’t available for web browsers or Chromecast right now.

Heads up: Effective January 1, 2020, you can’t add the AT&T TV channel to your Roku device. Already have AT&T TV on your Roku device? You can keep using it as long as you don’t delete the app. We’re actively working on a new agreement with Roku and hope to resolve this soon.
