Re: VIZIO TV accessibility with built-in speech.

I’ve been looking at the manual again.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Unfortunately the specifications don’t say what OS the TV is running and there is no mention of Android so - as it appears to me - the Television isn’t an Android set so therefore - and the manual sort of confirms this - the Talk Back access you have is only for adjustments of settings and not much else if anything at all so therefore Talk Back is just a name given to the feature it seems rather than actually being the Android Talk Back Screen Reader App itself as you can install or see on Android devices.
It is exciting enough to be able to adjust settings and whether your TV is Android or not may not bother you and fair enough, after all you do buy a Television for the audio and sound I would imagine.
The Talk Back only seems to be in English and that wouldn’t be the case if the Television was Android as you would be able to use or install Talkback to your own language preference.
Some other notes I made.
The Television talks about its “Smart Cast” capabilities which sound nice but don’t be at all surprised if you can’t access these via speech.
There is no mention of DLNA compatibility, Google Cast compatibility etc in the manual that I can find so I would like to assume that these functions are part of your Smart Television and I sincerely hop that my assumption is right.
Good luck with all of that and keep us informed as to how you’re going, what system you end up connecting etc.
