This document specifies a set of principles and considerations for digital television products in support of older people and persons with disabilities in addition to mainstream users. The effect of following the principles and considerations as set out in this document is to ensure that the widest range of users can access, understand and use digital television products. These principles and considerations cover four main user profiles such as individuals with hearing impairments, individuals with sight impairments, individuals with mobility impairments and individuals with cognitive impairments.
This document applies to consumer solutions whose primary function is to receive digital television, such as integrated digital televisions, set top boxes, digital television recorders and equivalent products and devices (see Annex D). All these solutions are referred to as digital television solutions throughout this document. The standard does not cover solutions that support digital television as a secondary function (for instance gaming consoles or computers with digital receiver cards). However, much of the content also provides for future solutions and/or implementations.This
