Remote Ease of Use for Disabilities

My mom spends a lot of time watching TV. We recently replaced her regular TV and external Roku device with a Roku smart TV. She lacs fine motor skills due to her disability and struggles with the small Roku remotes. In particular for her is the volume buttons which are on the side of the remote. Does anyone else experience a similar challenge and what have you done to combat this?

Re: Remote Ease of Use for Disabilities

Greetings @valeriehall 

Welcome to the Roku Community and thanks for the inquiry related to alternatives to the existing Roku TV remote.

Have you tried connecting a mobile device to your Roku TV and use the Roku mobile app as a remote to control the TV volume?

For more information about using the Roku mobile app as a remote, visit our Support pages here: 
Install the mobile app
Control your Roku without a remote

Let us know if that works out for you or if there is any other clarification we can provide with this option.
