Tommy’s DVD player was nearly 10 years old, so he decided to purchase a brand new SONY DVD upscaling player (model number DVP-SR500H) to see if it would be more accessible in the year 2011. Does the DVD player come with Braille instructions on how to use the remote control? How long does it take for Tommy to start playing the movie?

Note: This was filmed using a standard DVD – not a DVD with audio dDescription. This test was performed to examine the DVD player, not the DVD.
