(Best Syndication News) - AT&T U-verse will make it easier for people to surf TV channels with a new remote control app. The AT&T U-verse Easy Remote App works on the Apple iPhone and iPad. The new application turns these devices into a remote control for the AT&T U-verse receiver.

The new app will allow the user to configure colors, button size, and font size to help them see better. The remote control app will also work by voice commands, such as telling the receiver to go up and down a channel, fast forward, rewind, play, and record. The application can also be told to turn to a certain channel number or name.

The programming guide can be read aloud using the Apple iPhone’s VoiceOver screen reader. There are also gesture commands to help navigate channels and options.

A closed captioning feature is set up to be just a button-push away.

Even though these features would be helpful for people with disabilities, the new app would be a neat way to navigate the channels.

“Most Americans rely on their television as a critical source of news and entertainment and it is important that these resources be made accessible for all users,” said Larry Goldberg, director of WGBH's Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM). “It is great to see an app like Easy Remote apply many of the universal design features that improve access for customers both with and without disabilities.”
