Accessibility Comments

This is an easy little app for recording quick notes, letters, expenses and possibly even meetings. Just tap to record, say your message and double tap to pause. You can preview your message and save it and if you click audio list there are options there to edit your recordings and yes the transcription service is offered under there as well. I've tried the recording feature and all other options except the transcription service and everything is spoken by voice over and all buttons are labeled. The only thing that is a bit annoying is when you tap to record, voice over will speak something so wait till just after it stops speaking and then do your recording. Unfortunately, the word spoken by voice over is recorded as well, but it can be edited out in the edit area if you wish. I have not tested this with dropbox as I rarely use that anyway.

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.

Other Comments

I think this app might be really handy for busy people that need to keep track of a schedule, especially if you have a couple of kids that are involved in different activities at different times. tThis would also be useful for anyone in the medical field for quick notes or teachers of any kind.

This app sounds nice. I still would use my olympus for my music classes, but my education classes or classes in smaller room I think this thing would be handy especially since I use notesy for my note taking. and to have it work in the back round is quite handy. Sure we have the voice memos app but it's always good to have more then 1 tool for multi purpose things.

Regarding the editing of the beginning of a file, you cannot do that. No slider or way to select a file appears, at least with voice over. Over all though the app is pretty cool! These are just my observations so far. Good luck all.
