Besides the advantage of having information directly available, the Webbox2 distinguishes itself from other visual aids in that its operation is so simple! Ideal for beginners and/or senior citizens.
Audible prompts guide you through a wealth of information, which you only have to confirm by pressing the OK button. In total the device itself has only 5 push buttons and a single volume dial. Easy to remember and easy to use. The enclosed remote control duplicates these 5 functions and more.
