Comcast recently launched the industry’s first Large Button Voice Remote, a groundbreaking innovation designed for users with mobility, dexterity, or vision impairments.
This powerful device, which is available to X1 and Flex customers at no additional cost, combines Comcast’s award-winning voice control technology with industry-first advancements in accessible hardware design, inclusive packaging, and customer experience. The result is a hardware breakthrough that allows all viewers to easily navigate and enjoy all the entertainment, news, and information Xfinity has to offer.
This is considered the most accessible remote to date. Innovation is powered by a deep understanding of consumer preferences and needs. That’s why Comcast’s design team worked side-by-side with the disability community to test and refine the creation of its new Large Button Voice Remote. Accessibility features and functionality were the top priorities throughout the remote’s development. The result of a rigorous research and design process is a one-of-a-kind remote unlike anything available on the market today—one that combines high functionality with elegant design to offer something for everyone to love.
The Xfinity Large Button Voice Remote is another example of Comcast’s longstanding commitment to accessibility. From unveiling the nation’s first Talking Guide back in 2013, to the recent expansion of the Xfinity Web Adaptive Remote, which was named a “Best Inventions of 2019” by Time Magazine, these groundbreaking technological innovations continue to unlock more equitable access to entertainment, news, and information for people with disabilities. Comcast is proud to have been recently recognized as a “Leading Disability Employer” by the National Organization on Disability for the 7th year in a row.
