Please note that, unlike most of Mystic Access’s audios, the Roku overview is a single MP3 file. It is meant to be gone through fully and in sequence the first time you listen, as it provides important information about the Roku’s accessibility.
This audio serves as an introduction to the Roku from an accessibility perspective. It is an hour in length, and we hope it will provide you with valuable information about using the devices with blindness or low vision.
