Product Spotlight: BIG Button iPod Remote

By R.J. Cooper & Associates

big button ipod remote.The BIG Button iPod Remote gives accessibility to iPod listening functions. This accessible control for iPods features a large green “play” button that is 1 ¾ “ and 4 smaller buttons that are 1 ¼”. The smaller buttons control volume and allow the listener to select the previous or next song listed on the iPod. The buttons are raised and slightly convex.

The BIG Button iPod Remote also has switch inputs on the rear for performing button functions. The entire face of the Remote is angled at about 20 degrees. The BIG Button Remote weighs about 1 pound and the outer dimensions are 8" wide x 5" deep x 3" tall. Inside the Remote is an RF (radio frequency) remote - since it's not IR (InfraRed), it does not have to be lined up with the iPod.

The BIG Button iPod Remote is now available for demonstration at the Simon Technology Center Library. Please stop in during STC Library hours: Tuesdays noon to 6 p.m. or Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on the BIG Button iPod Remote visit

    I tried it out and it works great with regular ipods. When I tried it with my iPhone the play, forward, and back buttons worked but the volume control did not. Then again it was not designed for the iphone.

    The Big Button iPod Remote is built very solid and is setup and ready to use in seconds!!! Thumbs up!
