User comments:

With the exception of some of the edit boxes in the signup screen not being labeled, this app works quite nicely, and is definitely one of the best of its kind. Notes: The edit boxes in the signup screen if you don't already have an account are not labeled in Gingerbread. The one at the top is for your desired username, the second and third are for the account password, and the one at the bottom is the e-mail address to be used on the account. There is a button to the right of the username field to check the availability of your chosen username, but unfortunately, it doesn't speak, whether the username is available or not. Also, if you choose a username that is not available, the error message is also not spoken, but you will be placed back on its field to change it. When receiving a request to be added to someone's contact list, you will need to go to the notification area and look for a Zello event. Note that this is separate from the Zello icon that is near the top of the screen after the notification bar is opened, and usually says something like "1 event(s) Zello: click to view." Click the event notification to hear the username of the person who is requesting to add you. Click the name to see the accept and decline buttons and then click whichever one you want. These add requests don't seem to be available from within Zello itself, or if they are, I haven't yet been able to find them. Two of the settings in "under the hood" are not clearly labeled in Gingerbread. They look like dropdown lists with a number of seconds shown in each one, and clicking either of them shows an alert window that simply says "select value." From reading in the support questions, it would seem that these values determine the time interval at which keep-alive packets are sent to the server. There is one of these along with a couple of other labeled settings for 3G/4G and wifi, but I was unable to find which set is listed first. I tried the other two most popular voice chat/messaging apps, and Zello was by far the easiest for a blind/visually impaired person to use, and it also has features such as channels, saved message history and realtime radio-like communication that make it one of the best. As soon as these issues I mentioned are resolved, most of which are more annoyances than anything, Zello will certainly become the best by far.

I looked long and hard for a simple checklist app that would allow my wife and me to manage grocery lists quickly and easily. We wanted to be able to just enter the items we needed one by one and then go to the store and check off each item as we put it in the shopping cart. Most apps I found were hard to manage or just were not very accessible when used with a screen reader. Checklist, on the other hand is very simple, easy to use, and items can be added either with the keyboard or with voice recognition. It is possible to have multiple lists, and items can be copied from one list to another, or even to another app, using the system clipboard.. It is also possible to move items up or down on a list, so you can enter items as you think of them and then rearrange them based on the store layout. Notes: Voice input requires the use of an unlabeled button, but it is the only button that is unlabeled, so most people should have little trouble finding it. It appears to the right of the "add" button. Just click it, and then you will hear the voice search click. As soon as it detects that you are done speaking, it will add what it thought you said to the edit box for the list item. Arrow to the edit box, and if you like what's there, arrow back to the "add" button and click it. If it filled the edit box with nonsense or if it wrote something that is different from what you said, you can clear out the edit box to type in the correct item or just try speaking the item again. Whatever you say the second time will replace what you said the first time. The checked state of each item in a list is not currently spoken by either Talkback or Spiel in version 4.11. The best work-around I have found is to select "hide done" from the options menu. This will cause any item you check off to be hidden from the list. If you accidentally check off something on the list and want to go back and uncheck it, go to the options menu and click "show done." Then find the item in the list that you want to uncheck, click it and click "hide done" in the menu again. A bit involved, but it definitely gets the job done. The "hide done" and "show done" menu options always appear first on the menu, so there\'s no need to scroll around the menu looking for them. Simply go into the menu and then click immediately. This option toggles based on its current state. Update: Version 5.0b3, which I just downloaded as an update from Google Play, fixes the above issue for Spiel users. Though unchecked items are not spoken as unchecked, Spiel now speaks "checked" after each checked item, so the workaround above is no longer necessary if you use Spiel. It does still need to be done for Talkback though, unfortunately. I was more concerned with checked than unchecked anyway, so in light of the fact that it is now working as expected for one of the free and open source screen reader options, I feel that I can say with a fair amount of confidence that this app is now completely accessible and worthy of a 5 star accessibility rating. On my phone, voice recognition doesn't work with standard stereo headphones. If you are trying to add an item using voice input, you have standard headphones connected to your phone, and the voice input doesn't work, try unplugging the headphones before speaking. Just a heads-up, as this has happened to me several times. This is not specific to Checklist; it affects many voice recognition and recording apps.

Buried treasure. And it still works on Gingerbread. The unlabeled checkbox button enables and disables the app. The only problem I had was adjusting the sensitivity, which uses a seek bar. At this point, these are still not read properly by either Talkback or Spiel, so I basically had to guess the sensitivity level. In spite of this, I would consider this to be a must-have app.

The "stop" button isn't labled, but as far as I can tell it is the only button there when listening to a radio broadcast. Switching feeds is easily done, as both teams' feeds are clearly labled. Some things go in to the default Android Browser, saying "Web View" and that is not accessible at all; even though I do have the Accessible Web Browser from Code Factory. Box scores, lines, etc are accessible; if you can keep up with which line/number is what. The app does start off really slow when first starting it up, but either touching your touch screen or waiting about a minute will bring it up. I'm not sure if it is the app or my phone, but some times it wants to move kind of slow; but the app is still worth the price of admission into the ballpark.

Very handy app whose express purpose is the detection of various currencies and denominations. It's much more concise than Goggles, which often presents multiple and sometimes irrelevant results. To scan, either touch the screen or press your camera button (based on what options you've set). Hold the phone about 6 to 8 inches above the bill, and it will automatically detect the item in focus.

I have just installed this app, and it is surrpising that everyone believes that now my phone recognizes my fingerprint! its a great little app. all the settings are accessible and you are warned not to choose that screen as the home screen, you would be unable to really unlock the phone! you do have a password option in the pro version which shows a key pad for entering a password but it is touch only, so this is the only part on which the physical keyboard does not work and we will not be able to use that function until android 4 comes out. Other than that its really fun and a different way to unlock the phone

The app is useable but, for now at least, you will need to use a few work arounds in certain situations. I have emailed the developer about these issues and included the link to the part of the android developer guide about accessibility. I did get a reply and they seem very interested in correcting these issues. In the mean time, when you open the app and have not downloaded any of the content to your memory card, you will notice that in the player tab, all of the books read as one long list, you cannot move to and select each book separately. Currently this is the biggest issue with the app. If you select the contents tab, you will see a list of books and can select the book and chapter to play, it will also be downloaded to your memory card. For some reason, if you choose to download the entire bible, the contents tab can no longer be navigated, I'm not sure if this is because of the way the app was designed or if this tab no longer is needed once everything is downloaded and therefore nothing is shown. Once everything is downloaded, because of the issue I mentioned previously with the player tab, you will probably not be able to play the content within the app itself. However, thanks to the openness and flexibility of android, you have an alternative. All of the files are stored on your memory card in a folder called com.futuresoft. You can navigate to and play the files with any media player that you have on your device. Hopefully in the future this will not be necessary if the accessibility issues can be fixed. Despite the work arounds, this is a great version of the bible, the audio is great and a joy to listen to.

I was pleasantly surprised how accessible this application is. The only area of this app that is not accessible is the help screen, I think this may be a web view. The set up screen as well as the different tabs are very accessible. Even the keypad buttons are all labeled except for one button at the top which is the backspace key. During a call, you can choose to switch to the speaker phone, mute the microphone or put the call on hold, all of these options are well labeled. For making calls and saving your cell minutes, this may be a good alternative to skype, this app is easier to use and the controls are labeled much better.

Basically is accesible with Spiel, the problem I have is that when I access a folder I need to touch wherever in the screen to let the cursor down. Back key returns up a level. When you reach a element you want to open press enter and it will open, press selectoror leave enter pressed for 5 seconds to bring up the context menu. When you download you canot see how much time it lasts to download. I do not upload nothin with this app. Spanish: Usable con spiel, no lo he probadeo con talkback, el problema que tengo es que cuando entro en una carpeta de algún contacto tengo que tocar la pantalla en algún punto para poder seguir moviéndome por los elementos.

This is a great app, and it's very useable, the main issue is that on the play screen, the 5 buttons there are not labeled, but I can tell you what they do. Hopefully they will fix this. The button you first land on is the play stop button. The next one opens the facebook app, I'm assuming it allows you to post what you are listening to, not totally sure on that since I don't use facebook though. The third button allows you to set a sleep timer, I think the fourth button minimizes the app and returns you to the home screen, and the last button opens a screen where you can adjust the volume. The channel listings read very nicely so selecting a channel is straight forward.

This app is very useable, however the 2 tabs for power nap and sleep are not labeled, when using spiel or mobile accessibility, it will just say 1 of 2 or 2 of 2, once you memorize which tab is which everything else reads fine. The first time you open the app, it will download the audio files and during the download, it continuously updates a notification. You will want to turn off your screen reader's reading of notifications until the download is done or you will get a bunch of download status messages.

I think this app has more variety than Pandora. The app works well, but while listening to a station, there is a row of unlabeled buttons. I think the first one indicates that you like a song, the second one skips the current song, not sure what the others do yet, but have never had to use them. Everything else in the app works well and is accessible.

This is a great little app for using a bluetooth GPS receiver with your phone. In many cases, bluetooth receivers are more accurate than the phone's internal receiver, also internal receivers can drain the phone's battery much faster.

to use 1. Enter the app and start typing,no need to focus search fields (this generally works for anything, even the browser pops up the search box). 2. Press enter or arrow down to read and use any of the completion suggestions offered 3. Press enter again to search. As you search spiel or talkback anounce, \\\"youtube. always button\\\" . I am not really sure what the always button does, maybe it is for automatic updates or turning autocomplete on . Anyway, ignore the button and start arrowing down. 4. Talkback or spiel read the results with stats outloud to you, with number of views and the author ETC . when you want o open up the video press enter on that particular result. The list will scroll if you need to find result 53 for instance, so no need to hit next page or prev page ETC. while watching the video (on landscape mode when the keyboard is out) in the center, lower part of the screen is a slider that when touched will pause the video. Touch it again to resume. A couple of tries touching, then sliding to the left or right may fast-fowrard or backward the video. Adjust the volume with the keys on the phone (behind the keyboard). GO to the results with the erase or back key, and start typing anywhere again for a new search. Hopefully they will not break this level of accessibility in newer versions of the app . I imagine browsing channels is quite similar, although I ahve not tried any further experiments with the app.

this is so far the best caller ID I have found and also as an alternative or if you don't want spiel's option. The settings are right there when you open the up and it actually creates a servce to run in the background even when you close the up it will work perfectly, of course you can stop it at any time from the app manager, or from the application itself. It actually sounds a bit on par, or at the same level as your ringer and will sound at the same time, though I have found this quite a good and understandable voice out for incoming calls. It's options are quite flexible and pretty much all of the options are checkboxes or very accessible dialogs. You can filter which calls get voiced out, even if you have groups... it will read out the names but not the number, maybe that will change in the future, though you can always review the call log afterwards. Also, set the language, the speech rate independently from the screen reader; you can even set the pauses between each repetition. I have mine set to long, which I think announces the caller every 5 seconds or so. The ads or the donation button never gets in the way and for now its really great accessibility.

Adding hotmail or msn accounts is pretty straightfowrard and intuitive. But then the app does not reallly connect even though might be on a wireless connection. adding facebook accounts is the worst thing, because for one you have to fiddle around with the touchscreen to find the username and password buttons, and for another part you get he borwser to open with edit boxes, so the content in the fb part is not really accessible, or I am definitely missing something. DO not! get this for facebook.

If you’re looking for a player that will play AVI files, on your mobile device, then MX media player is what you need to get. You must have an sd-card that can hold big files, and just copy any movies that you have on your pc, on to this sd-card to play them on your phone. It’s best to create a folder where you will place your movies that way when you have the player search for all videos, it will find the folder, and you can click on it, to view, and choose what movie you want to see. Make sure on the menu options, to place a check on show stop, and play, rewind, and forward, buttons on the screen. This way you would be able to rewind, or fast forward, with the arrow keys on your qwerty keyboard. Unfortunately most of the commands are via touch screen, but it’s not that hard to learn, and with a little practice you would be able to use all the commands on this app. Good luck.

Jeannie is your own personal helper. If you are lazy like I am, to type in some information that you are looking for just ask Jeannie, and she will not only find the information, but she will also read it out to you as well. You can change Jeannie’s name to whatever name you want, also you are able to type in your name for Jeannie can know who you are. Jeannie to me is like the android answer, to the IPhone Siri. She works great. The free version is good, but for quicker response get the full version, it’s only $2.99, I am sure you will have lots of fun with Jeannie, regardless if you’re visually impaired or not. She can also draw pictures for you if you wish. It’s an option that kids would like, along with asking what sound does an animal make. Try out Jeannie, she’s fun to have, she’s funny, with some times answering with a sarcastic tone, and best of all she’s FREE. Enjoy your Jeannie.

This app, is basically accessible, just follow these instructions. What you first need to do is register, that way it can remember your settings. Once you created your account just click on continue… it would ask you, if you are a female or male, you would have to use your arrow keys up and down to get to read the two choices… once you make your choice, click on continue, and then a list of different workouts would pop up. For example. Lose weight, strengthen-core, build muscle, etc… Place a check on the ones you are interested in, and then hit continue. It would give you another set of workouts, like if you are looking to have a washboard stomach… click on that and it would give you a choice to preview workout, or do workout. If you click on do a workout, and then it would ask you to choose your trainer. Choose your trainer, and then click on start your workout and it would tell you what to do step by step. Sometime you would have to hit your menu button twice to get the trainer to start speaking. Click on start, and Your trainer at that point would start speaking and guide you in what to do. If you have some vision, you would be able to view the screen and see the workout in action. Your trainer will always keep track of the timing, and it will count down to the length of the workout. I hope you understand my explanation, for this app. Keep in mind, switching workouts, is wise, that way you can give some mussels time to relax, and workout the rest of your body. Good luck.

The one problem I have with this app, apart from the unlabeled controls, is that long pressing on a tweet opens the same menu as selecting it. It may be that the two menus have recently been merged or that it doesn't work correctly on my phone. If that's the case I'm missing two useful options: Block User and Report As Spam. I would think these options are available in this client, but as usual, please correct me if I'm wrong.

The main buttons are labeled and easily accessible (Record, Pause, Resume, Restart, Publish). However, a number of other controls are not: - Authorizing the application to use your Audioboo account poses the same accessibility issues that other apps that use the default system browser have. - There\'s a column of unlabeled images to the left, I had no problem finding out what they do by selecting them. - There\'s an unlabeled control that Mobile Accessibility reports as a checkbox, I still don\'t know what it\'s supposed to do. - In the publishing screen there\'s one unlabeled button, which apparently leads to the app\'s picture featgures. - I haven\'t found a way to stop a playing audioboo, either because it can\'t be done, or because the control is inaccessible. Either way, it can get a bit annoying. - When publishing an audioboo, the title field speaks some pre-generated text, which is a bit misleading.

I then tried this app, which has worked flawlessly so far. All functions are accessible, and most items have proper labels. Those that don't, like the port number, are self-explanatory.

Dictator is a dictation-taking application for Android. It is highly configurable and fully accessible. Dictator will let you "compose text" by using your voice. You can send the speech recognition results to your note-taking app, texting app, email application, etc. Phone requires speech recognition functionality. You will have best performance when connected to Wifi networks. If you so wish you can capture the audio (i.e. what you dictate) and save it as an audio file. The app sells at $1.50, which, in my experience, is excellent value for your money.

Very useful, and fully accessible app. My only problem with it is that the interface sometimes gets a bit quirky, not responding to navigation keystrokes, but I expect this has to do with the screenreader (MA) and not so much the app.

This application, having "no frills" is apparently easy to use (using Mobile Accessibility in my case). Through exploration I found that all controls can be accessed and are labeled, though as this is an app you open once and leave it to do its thing afterwards I might have missed something. So please correct me if I'm wrong or if it is different on other devices. I installed this application on my rooted Xperia Mini Pro to see if I could get a little more speed out of the phone when using heavy TTS enginges such as Ivona TTS, while not draining so much of the battery when not using the phone. The app doesn't seem to handle detailed settings, but for a quick-and-easy setup it is certainly sufficient.

If your Bluetooth headset does not support A2DP audio, this app will route your music and speech through your headset, albeit at phone quality. Use this to route your screen reader through your BT headset if it only supports the handset profile. Worked to route Mobile Accessibility on my G2 with Android 2.3.

This is another speech synthesizer available for Android. The app sends you to the web to download additional voices, but those links will not work with the Mobile Accessibility web browser. That's not a problem with the Ivona app, however. You can go to the market and download the required voices that way such as Kendra for U.S. English. Download this app if you want any Ivona voices, and then download your specific voice. You will need to go into settings/Voice Input and Output and select the Ivona voice as well as download voice data before it will work properly.

The latest version of this app will finally read your books to you using the synthesizer set in your text-to-speach settings. You may wish to invest in a better voice than the one that comes wiht Android if you plan to use it this way. It apparently detects that you are using a screen reader (Mobile Accessibility in my case) and begins reading as soon as you open a book. There does not appear to be any way to control the reading short of backing out, but it will remember your position and resume when you re-enter the book. There may be documentation that I haven't found that would provide more control. The app will not read with your screen off. You will probably find it easier to do your shopping on the computer but the Market is workable if you know what you're looking for. Those of us used to more sophisticated reading solutions won't be thrilled with the interface, but it will read books for you, something long awated and much welcomed.

Be sure to enable the accessibility mode under Menu/Settings. You will hear a higher-pitched click when it is waiting for you to say something and a lower click when it is finding an answer. Tap the screen to start/stop the app. It can also be set up to activate on shaking, but I find this to be too sensitive. The sensitivity is adjustable under settings however.

The latest version includes an accessible mode which will let you navigate by page, pause reading, or search for text. You can also search for books to download. I gave it a 4 because of no apparent way to navigate by character, word, etc. But nice to see some big improvements for this app, opening up millions of free and paid books to Android.
