Modern entertainment comes in a variety of media. Many of the media players lack features to make them easily usable by people wlth physical or sensory limits. Various accommodations do exist, however.
- Personal music players can store hours of music, talking books, or other entertainment to be listened to.
- Players often use batteries too quickly or have controls that are not accessible. Docking the player gives it access to better speakers, larger controls, and power for the batteries.
- Some radios have accessible features, and some accessible players have radio receivers.
- Videos such as movies are often stored on DVDs for playback. Some players have been designed for accessibility, and others can be modified for accessibility.
- Screen magnifiers may make it possible to obtain information from a screen where the print is too small to be easily read.
- Sometimes a video may need to be larger to be enjoyed. Video magnifiers often have more features than still image magnifiers.
- A person with hearing aids may need the sound at a level that is uncomfortable for other people in the area. Magnetic or Bluetooth interfaces can send the sound directly to the user's hearing aids so that listening need not intrude.
