Accessibility Comments: 

Despite SiriusXM's best efforts, we finally have an easy app to use. Don't forget that a satellite radio subscription is required to use this app. However, once you have your subscription, this is a very easy app to navigate. And, best of all, it even offers desktop access as well. Point your web browser on your computer to and you can thwart SiriusXM again with the ability to listen from your computer.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.


music doc no longer giving artist/title information for songs

Has anyone had problems with music doc no longer giving you artist and song information when using it with the i-Phone or i-Pod? I have experienced this for some time now and was not sure why. I tried re downloading and re installing the app, but it didn't work. Any ideas on how I can fix this would be appreciated as I get to here songs on xm that aren't played over local radio. Thanks.

song and artist info

It seems like they dumped this function of the app awhile ago. I haven't seen it available in over 6 months. Buth then again, even when it was there, it wasn't accurate, so you really aren't missing much.

I noticed this too

Yep, the app is utilizing legacy streams that Sirius xm was using a long time back, and i'm glad they're still available. The Music Dock app isn't able to receive a bunch of the newer channels now available on Sirius XM, which is kind of a shame. I tried the regular Sirius xm app, but got nowhere with it so deleted it. So I use music dock, and even paid for the premium sound quality for a few bucks. It works pretty well!
