Accessibility has improved greatly for this app. The continuous mode is self-voicing while labels are now included for most of the controls and buttons. Matching results are shown in a list along with the type of result (image, logo, text, etc.)

Despite it's issues, this is still a handy app. Along the top is a set of tabs for headlines, videos, shows, slideshows, and favorites. In the headlines tab you can scroll through the summaries and they will ve voiced, but opening the article yields no speech. Videos and shows are reachable without any trouble. I did not try every single function, but it looks like most will be usable. I did note that the settings, which are buried under the Info item on the menu, cannot be activated by using the select or enter key and there are some things that seem only to be accessible by touch. The weather option is also inaccessible. In summary, if You are just looking for quick news summaries or like to listen to the video clips the app is worth having.

If you use Carbonite on your PC, which is also pretty accessible, this app works great. The only word of warning is when you open one of the files in your backup, the application that handles that file type also has to be accessible. This is beyond the scope of the Carbonite app.

There's two unlabeled buttons on the main screen. The top one is an ad while the bottom one is the voice search button. This works best with Talkback or Spiel as they silence speech during voice search. Sometimes, speech collides but it works pretty well.

User comments:

If you first purchase a book from the store and it has audio you might manage to find and read it on the device. The store doesn't speek. The book titles do not speek. Nothing on the main screen when you start the app is labeled, though the menu items that come up when the menu key is pressed are spoken. If you manage to find and open the right bookk there is an audio option in the menu. In the sample children's book that comes wiht the app the narration seems to be done by a human, so I don't know about reading a pure e-book. If it is synthesized it is very good, but there is no obvious way to change the rate. This app is most disappointing if only because KNFB made such a production of Blio's accessibility when it came out. it has fallen far short of expectations. With the relatively small collection of titles and the inadequate categorization of the web site my opinion is that blind users should look elsewhere.

Unfortunately recent changes to this app have made it inaccessible. while some of the buttens can still be accessed, the primary purpose of the app, reading Facebook content, no longer works. Scrolling through feeds produces no speech output. For basic news feed access I recommend HootSuite. If your phone came with a pre-installed earlier version of Facebook that you can use I recommend making sure auto update is turned off. You may be able to keep using the old version.

The previous review is good regarding the accessibility. i have gotten the same results. There are a couple of quirks to be aware of, such as when you are in the library selecting a title opens up another level where you actually get to the playable file. The cool new feature for those of us who are used to listing to things fast is that you can now change the narration speed from the menu once you are playing it. The caveat is you may have to find the OK at the bottom of the screen with your finger to select the new speed. I can't tell whether hitting Enter on the option actually changed anything on the screen so I can't say whether arrowing down to OK would actually leave the item selected. It goes up to 2X. This 1 feature makes the difference for me. I may actually use the app now.

Once you have selected categories, screen is as follows: Two edit boxes on the left, you fill in the desired quantity in top box and then once you have selected the conversion ratio the result appears in the bottom box. To select the conversion ratio, there are two columns of different quantities, the 1st is the quantity you want to convert from, the 2nd is for what you want to conver to...e.g. 1st column is pounds and 2nd could be ounces. Very good simple app.

User comments:

I'm pleased with the rendering of this web reader, as it uses the built-in Webkit engine instead of a self-contained, custom renderer. There aren't enough structural navigation options, making navigation of some complex web pages a tedious process. The ideal plugin used to make the web view control accessible is obviously able to detect headings and other controls, you just can't navigate specifically by these elements. However, it does render pages more reliably than the Codefactory web browser and uses the system bookmarks list rather than a built-in one, so I find myself coming back to Ideal instead of Codefactory for most of my web browsing needs.

While the accessibility of the app is fine in and of itself, I cannot say the same for its rendering. Codefactory were not thorough in anticipating the interactions needed for certain web pages. A good example is Wikipedia, it is impossible to search for something on Wikipedia because the search control is not an edit box plus a button, but a search field. One can enter text in the box, but Codefactory did not provide a way to activate the search half of the control (normally activated by pressing enter or the equivalent key). Ideal web reader does not have this problem, primarily because it renders using the built-in Webkit engine. All in all, while the accessibility is perfect, I wish I could get a refund for this due to the rendering problems.

I have been trying for the past few months to get aps that will help me stay fit and in shape, and found this ap to be reasonably helpful, though it is unfortunately not as accessible as it could be. It is a great ap that integrates your music playlist on your phone with a male voice providing details on your cardio workout (speed, distance, etc). The only downside is that there are some pointless buttons that I can't figure out what they are designed to do, and if I want to change my workout from an outdoor walk or run to an indoor bike/elliptical, the button to change that is a spot on the touch screen. Their tech support is quite good, and I have asked the developer if they can include an actual button for this on future updates; perhaps they will.

I enjoyed this ap for the most part, but did uninstall it. I found that it wouldn't give complete addresses for restaurants/coffeeshops/whatever, but only what street they were on. This, coupled with the battery drain on my phone, was the reason I uninstalled it and installed other aps.

This app is fully accessible as of version 4.1.7. All controls can be accessed via navigation, and your chat history can also now be reviewed. The only issue I've noticed is that a few of the edit controls aren't labeled, although since these are in the add account dialog and are the username and password fields, it's pretty obvious what they are. A note about the free version: occasionally, when reviewing your message history, focus will get thrown to the advertisement. It doesn't get stuck there, but it does mean you have to move back to your history list. I'll be buying the Pro version to get rid of these myself, as not only can this get annoying and I hate ads, but Shape Services has clearly listened to requests for accessibility improvements and implemented them.

all of this app works. the only think is that it wont speak on the login page. the way to get around this, is to tap in the middle of the screen on the login page and it will open up the keyboard so that you can put in your login details. the top box is your username and underneath that is your password. then you have to tap beneath the password box and that is were you will find your login butten. now i know that sounds like a crap way of loging in but it is well worth it.

This app works just as well as the Ipone equivilent, sometimes you have to use arrows rather than swiping the screen but that's ok. It installs onto SD and doesn't seem that battery hungry. Go try out the free version before buying it if you like but if you have played it on IPhone just go ahead and purchase. A very well made app.

The only things that need improvement are the my account and the confirmation pages are not accessible. The buttons that are on these particular pages are labeled correctly and work with a screen reader. Just to clarify I mean the content on these two pages doesn't read at all with a screen reader.

The only part of this app that doesn't appear to be accessible, is the schedule, accessed ffrom the menu. The window opens, but nothing is read, as if the screen is blank. Otherwise this app would have got full marks. This is not really a problem, as you can access all you have recorded from the History option, from the menu. For anyone who has Sky in the UK, this is a wonderful app.

This is a fantastic alternative to the Facebook for Android app. There are quite a few features that are included that you won't find on the Facebook for Android app. One feature that I particularly like is if you press enter on someone's news feed status, and hit menu, you are given a share option. This allows you to share that status to your own wall, as well as some other apps. It also allows you to set quiet times for facebook notifications, which I particularly like. I no longer wake up to the notification sound on my phone going off, telling me that someone wrote on my wall. One thing that I haven't managed to figure out is how to add a facebook place. Checking in is quite simple, when the place is already in the list. But, for example, I can't seem to add my home as a place, even though this feature is supposedly included in the app. When you click on an item in the news feed, there is a comment edit box if you arrow down a couple of times. There is an unlabeled button to the right of it, which posts your comment. Almost all of the buttons are labeled in this app, and the settings are accessible. From what I've noticed, the majority of the unlabeled buttons I've found actually open up the adds that come with the app. There is a paid version that is add-free, but I really don't think that it includes any more features. If you don't click any unlabeled buttons on the home screen, the ads don't get in the way. I may purchase the full version eventually, just to save the data that I'm guessing the ads probably use. Amazing app, and much better than the Facebook for Android, in my opinion.

I tried 5 home screen launchers before finding this gem. It doesn\'t make the home screen more accessible but the app itself is completely accessible. Allows me to bind my adw.launcher home screen with mobile accessibility\'s home screen turning the home button of your android device into a switch to rotate through them seamlessly. The swipe up and swipe down are programmable to your desired app or shortcut. Once again it does not make the home screen any more accessible than the stock android home screen but allows you to add a switch (shortcut to any program) as well as 2 swipe shortcuts

If you want to access the global addressbook from work to get phone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc. and place calls, send e-mail or text messages, and so on, this app is a great choice. Just type in the name of the person and all of the info about him or her in the global addressbook is listed, easily read by Mobile Accessibility. Long press on any item and the menu comes up to do whatever you want to do.

If you need to remember numbers or other parts of calls, this is a great app. You set it up and it records all calls with good sound. You just open the app and there is a list of calls. You can play the recording, delete the recording, or e-mail it. The app auto deletes calls on a schedule you set to avoid getting an endless list of recorded calls. It is very simple and easy to use.

It's a handy little app that I will continue to use. Thanks to Anna for the first review that led me to it. My one complaint that kept it from a perfect score is that one cannot hear the text inside the edit box of the note while moving around inside it. The whole text is read when the edit box is focused but that's the only way you can check what you've written. I use Mobile Accessibility. I did not try it with TalkBack. If i understand how Android works it would not make any difference.

I found that I was able to sign into Skype without a problem. Once I was logged in there was an edit box and a share button that were labeled. The other buttons were not labeled but once I tapped each of them to find out what it does it was accessible. However when I tried to send someone an IM it wasn't as accessible as I thought. This feature of the program could be more accessible. There was an edit box and an unlabeled button but it was still hard to use with a screen reader. I was able to make a skype call and search for people. I was also able to look at each person's profile. Overall I like the ap so far but it could be more accessible.

I was reluctant to use Ringo Pro because of the reviews that I saw on the Android Market, but I still wanted to have specific ringtones for unique callers. After a bit of digging I found this gem of an ap, and think it's great! All aspects of this ap are labeled well, and it will even tell you how to avoid common mistakes such as having duplicate ringtones, etc. Two thumbs up!

I am the developer and think this app could be beneficial to the visually impaired. I didn\'t write it with accessibility in mind but would be happy to make changes where needed to help with things like screen readers. I have no option but to select a rating on accessibility in order to submit this app here, but haven't actually tested the accessibility... so sorry for any inaccuracies.
