Peter Korn, Director of Accessibility at Amazon’s Lab 126 Gives Us a Demo on the Toshiba with Amazon Fire TV Built-In and an Overview of the Amazon Fire Cube.
On the floor of the exhibit hall at the 2018 NFB Convention we had to check out the Amazon booth. Peter Korn, Director of Accessibility Lab 126, gives us an overview of the Toshiba Smart TV’s now available from Best Buy due to a partnership with Amazon that puts the Fire TV functionality built into the Smart TV. Meaning that Alexa, Voice View screen reader and magnification are all built in to the 43 inch, 50 inch and 55 inch, with 4K Ultra HD capability. All 3 models differ only by size.
Peter also gives us an overview of the Amazon Fire Cube. A device that will give you voice control of your entire entertainment center.
Peter reminds us of Amazon’s Prime Day coming up on July 16 kicking off at noon and most of these items will be discounted along with thousands of other great deals.
