I don't have a specific recommendation however you might look at AV receivers which offer built-in Vtuner or TuneIn service and audio announcements of menu options or something like that. I'm not aware of any wifi only device which offers this. The Grace and many other wifi radios do have remotes with many presets and could be configured by a sighted user to work but lack audio announcements.
