Frequently asked questions

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is how available and useful our products and services are to people with different types of disabilities.

Voice guidance is a talking guide that reads what's on the screen including program descriptions and navigation options. Voice guidance allows you to effortlessly explore content and find favorite shows and movies.

Voice guidance is intended for customers who rely on audio feedback to interact with products and services—including customers with visual disabilities or who have difficulty reading. Voice guidance is available to everyone who has Contour 2 TV.

Voice guidance is available for Contour 2 TV equipment.

Voice guidance, Voice Control and video description are three distinct features, all available through Contour 2, each with benefits to a person who has visual disabilities:

  • Voice guidance provides customers with visual disabilities—or those who have difficulty reading—the freedom to explore content and find their favorite shows and movies. The feature speaks what's on the screen and includes details such as program descriptions and navigation options.
  • Voice Control can be used to control your Contour guide using voice commands. It includes basic navigation, tuning to channels, searching, browsing and finding program recommendations.
  • Video description refers to audio narrated video descriptions that detail the key visual elements of a program enriching the experience for the blind and visually impaired. To find video descriptive content, say “Video Description” into your voice remote.

Contour 2 customers can say “Closed Captions” into their voice remote. Other video customers can turn Closed Captions off and on as well.

We’ve created an alternative big button remote to enable all our customers to have the same great experience with our products. To request a big button remote, call our Specialized Accessibility Support Center at 1-888-266-1304.

Along with traditional paper and Paperless billing, Cox has alternate bill statement options for customers with additional needs. To request a braille or large print bill, call our Specialized Accessibility Support Center at 1-888-266-1304. Or sign in to your account, then choose billing options: paper bill. You can select braille or large print.

We strive for compliance with WCAG 2.1 'A' and 'AA' standards in order for customers using assistive technologies like screen readers and screen magnifiers to navigate effectively, and we're continuing to make improvements. For feedback or questions, contact us at accessibilityteam@cox.com or call 1-888-266-1304.
