The Ignite Large Button Voice Remote is the next-generation accessibility remote for customers with visual, dexterity and cognitive needs. It has fewer buttons that are larger and easier to find and press. The remote is compatible with most assistive technologies like text-to-speech, and also accepts typed voice commands.
