My name is Che Martin and I've recently started using Apples products for the first time since losing my sight 11 years ago.
I've got an iPad 3, a MacBook, and have ordered an iPhone 5 to replace my Android after getting terribly frustrated with the lack of accessibillity improvement on droid devices over the past two years.
I'm really digging voiceover on the iPad, finding it tougher going on the Mac though, I just gotta find the right tutorials and all for the mac I think, and bear down and learn it.
Anyhow, I'd like to be able to pipe audio from my iPad into my stereo system, which uses an older analog receiver.
I've heard good things about Apple TV, but I have a few questions:
1. Can you convert the Apple TV output from digital to analog, for instance run a cable from the box to RCA analog?
2. Is there a way to get live broadcasts of sports events with ATV? I don't watch much TV at all, but I do have friends come over to watch sporting events.
3. Barring ATV, are there any gadgets that would allow me to send audio from the iPad to my receiver via bluetooth out? I like the concept of ATV, but if I can't get live sports, I don't think I would get a lot of use out of it, and might as well just use something that can convert the audio.
Finally, one big reason I got the Apple stuff is to look into making apps for iOS.
I own BlindAdrenaline.com , which makes games for the blind, but so far only for the PC.
I'll be making a seperate post regarding my thoughts on publishing games for iOS later on, but just wanted to introduce myself to the community here and give kudos to the Apple Vis gang, , you folks have made a very good resource and I'm very impressed with your site and the way it is run, well done.
