It seems all the most important buttons - thumbs up/down, skip, pause/play etc. are properly labeled. The only difficulty I\'ve experienced is the inability to create stations. One can use Hope for Pandora on the pc to do this. after that, the android app is completely usable.

Skype works quite well on android, there is one thing I have not been able to do, and I don't know if it's because I'm missing something, or if it's a program issue. I have not found a way to answer a call, arrowing around does not seem to work, and just clicking doesn't work either. I'm wondering if there is an answer button on the screen somewhere that we can't reach with the navigation control. Placing calls, reading contacts, and changing settings work very well.

User comments:

This app is useable, though many of the buttons are not labeled. The log in screen works quite well, but once you are logged in, the buttons are all unlabeled. You will need to experiment with clicking buttons until you find the one that will open the category of channels, it's towards the top I think. Once you select a category, you can then choose a channel from the menu. One interesting feature about this app compared to the I O S version, it puts the title and artist of each song in the notifications area, so, your screen reader will automatically speak this information when it changes. If they would just label the buttons, it would be perfect.

This app is about as feature rich as the email reader on your computer. One very important feature that isn't accessible is Ad Sender to Contacts. Sighted users can touch the senders name in an open message to do this, but we are not able to move focus to that part of the screen. the other glitch is that messages aren't always read automatically when they're opened. The workaround is to arrow down to the Delete button, then up again, or to press the selector in the open message to go into review mode, which enables us to scroll through messages line by line.

In general, this app works well. There are two unlabeled buttons. Go to the top left corner and then arrow down once. This is the button to start listening to identify a song. In the top right is a button that will let you speak a song title or artist. Press this button and then press enter again to stop speaking and load the results. When Sound Hound recognizes a song, you can focus the artist and album but not the title. To get around this, press menu and go to history. All of your recent songs will be listed here. Some options, such as tour dates, bring up the browser so you'll need the Ideal Web Browser or another accessible browser to read these pages.

User comments:

The setup process is a bit rocky. There's some screens that don't read well and you just need to press the next button to continue. One of the first screens will ask you which Google account you want to link. You can select one of the checkboxes for an existing Google account or add one from here if you wish, which uses the normal phone's process for this. You can configure the app to use Google Voice for outgoing calls. Once you're done with the setup wizard, you're placed in your inbox. This view is quite accessible. It shows both missed calls and voicemails. Voicemails will usually include a transcript which is read while arrowing, so you then know it's a voicemail. Press enter on an item to open it. On a voice mail, there's two unlabeled buttons in a row on the bottom. The leftmost button is play/stop while the button on the right toggles between the handset and speaker for playing the message. While in the inbox, you can long press on the trackpad enter to bring up a list of options. Press menu and select more to get to the app's preferences and perform additional tasks. You can also adjust your Do Not Disturb setting from the preferences screen.

I really like the app. Getting through the learning curve is worth the work.

Great app, but takes practice. The soft keyboard usually opens automatically when it is the only one selected in Settings/Language and Keyboard. To use it, close the physical keyboard once you're in an edit field. then put your phone in portrait orientation and touch the screen about .5 inches from the bottom (above the capacitive buttons). The keyboard doesn't seem to respond if you start touching anywhere else. This is easy to get used to though. What takes a little longer is to adjust to how close the keys are to one another. It's easy to inadvertently type a neighboring key by moving a finger slightly before lifting it. I have the feeling this is one of those things I won't remember having trouble with once I've spent more time with the app. A great side effect is that you can do some basic reviewing even when using the hardware keyboard.

The listings are accessible. The bells and whistles are not. Start by pressing the Menu button and going into Settings to select your service provider from a dropdown list. OTA is what we humble folk have. Wait a couple of seconds. then move to the app main screen to scroll through the listings. With my keyboard out and Auto Rotate off, I arrow left and right. The listings tell you what's on now and for the next hour and a half or two. You can scroll, or press the search button and type a keyword to find a show. Pressing the Menu button brings up some interesting options, but most of them open into a web view, so they're not accessible.

This is the Android half of a LAN connection to your PC or laptop which allows you to use the phone connection for accessing the web. This works like a phone as modem system, but doesn't use that mechanism. The app has code on both the Android and on the hosting computer. Their web site contains information about which phones are supported as well as providing the host side code for the connection for supported phones. You need this app as well as the associated code for the hosting computer. In addition, you'll need to check settings -> applications -> development -> USB debugging. While this control is set, you'll not be able to access the phone's SD card from the hosting computer. To re-enable access to the SD card, uncheck this control and then click the control for allowing access to the SD card. There are no controls on the Android side. Once started, this app will respond to an USB connection. The few controls that exist are on the hosting computer. The tray icon for the app will indicate whether or not there is a connection to the phone. Various events may cause the connection to be dropped. Just click the tray icon and reconnect when this does happen. If your computer says that it can't find Easy Tether on the connected phone, it usually means you need to start Easy Tether on the phone.

Note that the free version of this app does not include text-to-speech, so trying it out will tell you nothing about how the app will work for you. The menu system is a bit confusing. Basically, it is a system for relating various toolbar positions to certain commands and for relating certain phone controls to commands. These menu settings can mostly be ignored. The only settings one may wish to set are those related to scroling and to the control selected for starting the reading. When you initially enter the app, it will present you a file manager view of your SD card. You can then select a book to read or hit the back button to get to the exit dialog. When you start the app after using it to read a book, it will position to start reading that book at the position where you left off. Hitting the back button will take you to the file manager view which allows you to select a different book. Hitting the back button again will take you to the exit dialog box. Books are selected from the SD card for reading. While the app does include mechanisms for accessing books online, I've not used those features. Once started, the app reads to the end of the book or until some action is taken to terminate it. A good way to use the app is to select a book, shake the phone to get the reading started and then locking the phone. The app reads quite well using the Loquento speech engine. The reading is smooth with proper actions taken for such punctuation as commas and periods. There is a several second long silence period between chapters when reading - much better than those readers that don't pause at that point.

When this app installs, it takes the user through screens that apparently guide the user in establishing their initial settings. These pages contain three buttons, yes, no and skip. As the text on these pages is not accessible, choose the 'skip' button and do the setup later. The home page is essentially a menu. The links for help, setup script and frequently asked questions all lead to inaccessible pages. All the links that lead to usuable information and settings are accessible. The page that allows entry of a new number to be added to the black list has a 'search' button above the edit box. That button takes you to a menu where you can decide to enter the number from either your contacts list or from the call log. If you use one of the ringtones supplied by the vendor, the app inhibits the initial ring for a blocked number. If you use a ringtone from somewhere else, it is said that the phone will ring once on a blocked call. The settings do contain a setting for blocking all calls. It literally does that, so unless you want all calls directed to your voice mail, don't select that button. A very flexible app, perhaps too flexible. It has quite a few features that I've never tried and for which I have no real use. A very good app to have around if you're on a transferred land line and are getting calls from con artists and others who ignore the do not call list.

It's a color identifier. Turn it on and it will speak the color name every few seconds using your default TTS. There's a row of 5 unlabeled buttons on the bottom, though I can't figure them them all out. From left to right there's an autoread on/off button, then one I'm not sure of, then a manual announce button if the auto feature is turned off, then settings, then something else. I did write the dev about labeling these. Settings lets you turn on the torch if you need some light, among other things. It does seem to work, and the colors it gives are quite precise.

The app uses the default browser to view the web site associated with some businesses. There seem to be a few other places where the app presents web views that aren't accessible. No problems entering search criteria, reading the results and placing a call to the desired business. The main search page contains an unlabeled button that brings up a menu allowing you to choose to view favorites, categories or a history of previous searches.

This is the Android version of the WhitePages.com search tools. It provides White and Yellow pages search as well as a reverse lookup by telephone number. The app is quite accessible but lacks a few features: 1) to call a number you've found via a search, you must transfer the directory entry to your contacts and then use the contacts app to place a call. 2) You must type a number for a reverse number search. The app has no way of importing the number from the call log. 3) In the white pages search, the app fills in your city and state for you. If the person you want is in another location, you must backspace over their information or remember to go to the menu to clear the entire form before entering the search criteria. I've not used their caller ID feature; I don't think it's worth the cost.

I had pretty low expectations for this app, but it does partly work, at least for scores. You can select a sport and then get current or recent scores. The two unlabeled buttons go to the previous and next date. Select a game to get more details. For an NBA game, the game summary with points by quarter, etc. spoke but stats for each team did not. Not much luck with standings, news, or other parts of the app. But if you want a quick way to check the score of a game, this could help.

Give it some time to retrieve the data, but it will then speak all sorts of technical info about your phone, in case you need to do some troubleshooting. It's all in one big box, and it would be nicer in a list from an accessibility perspective. But it does speak fine.

The browse feature lets you choose media files from a computer and then play them on that computer. Once the file is playing, the play/stop/other controls are unlabeled buttons. Play/stop appears to be underneath the browse button. The touchpad feature lets you remotely control your computer. With a hardware keyboard, you can enter most keys, though without control, alt, etc. working, it's hard to do a lot of commands. Still, this app has definite uses in controling your computer or playin files. There are a couple of settings, but these aren't speaking so am unsure as to what they do. It's an open source app if anyone wants to try to improve it. It doesn't appear to be updated in a long time.

It's cool. I tried it with a pair of headphones. It works like this: A noise comes in from the left, slides from left to right, and goes out on the right. The process repeats over and over again until you stop it. Make sure you have Stereo or 3D audio set in the "Audio Channels" setting or the sound will not be in stereo. It will be all in the middle (Mono.) The noise lets you know what's on your left and right by it's position. You can get the app to speak colors too The only thing I don't like is how the sound comes and goes. I think it should be always on, on both channels, and give feedback when the object in front of the camera moves, not one second later. Over all it's a pretty good free app for seeing with the camera.

I was able to successfully hear my current balance, view recent transactions, and make a credit card payment. On the account activity screen, I needed to press in the center of the touchscreen to focus the listbox. Other than that, everything worked flawlessly. I do not have a bank account so am unable to test the check depositing feature.

For the most part, IM+ works very well with screenreaders. The only problem is accessing the history. The only way you can read incoming messages is through the Notification bar. Most of the time, that isn't a problem but if you receive multiple messages, You can only read the most recent one only. So far, I haven't figured out a way around this yet but the app is still worth getting.
