Sky+ app

Sky has worked closely with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) to develop an updated version of its popular Sky+ app. The app aims to improve usability for customers with vision impairments to search, browse and record programmes on their mobile or tablet device.

The new version of the Sky+ app has been made compatible with the latest voice-over technology built into iOS and Android devices. Customers with visual impairments can now better navigate th app using a series of gestures and touch, while a voice over reads out each item of text that appears on the screen.
