does anyone know if this app is now accessible? Or if there is an alternative? I am thinking about purchasing the Logitech harmony hub or harmony keyboard with hub but I don't want to get it if the app isn't accessible. I can't get past the screens to set up the hub which I don't have, but the screens seem accessible initially. Strangely, on Amazon, the keyboard with hub is cheaper than just the hub itself so does anyone know if the hub which comes with the keyboard is perhaps an older model or something? Thanks
I'm also thinking of purchasing a harmony hub, but wondering about the accessibility of this app, since the last post about it was from 2 years ago. If anyone has any inside into this, please comment here.
Thanks so much
Just bumping this thread as, like my fellow commenters, I'm looking for this to work. It can be used along with the echo dot which is super cool... Alexa... turn on the death ray.
Just to get them into this on twitter.
So, I emailed them to ask about accessibility and after I asked if the harmony app worked with voiceover they replied...
My name is Antony, from the Harmony Team and I'm sorry to let you know that Harmony cannot be controlled by the voiceover in iOS. Having said that, any Hub based Harmony remotes can be controlled by Amazon Echo or Google Home.
I think he assumed I was referring to Siri. I'm awaiting a reply to me attempting to explain that it is simply a case of getting the developers to add more labels etc... Fingers crossed.
There are some unlabelled buttons but nothing so hard. I've got it working with my harmony hub. Another app is yonomi which seems to be another way in and it can work with alexa which is cool so I can say, alexa, turn on netflix, and it accesses an acivity I've created and netflix starts playing... It's like living in the future.
Can you turn on and off Apple Music and what else is possible?
No, you can't control apple music directly, you can set up complicated controls to turn on your tv, move to apple music on your apple tv and play, but it's really clunky. I've actually sent mine back as I really didn't see the value in it as alexa can control all the home devices itslef, or you can do it with homekit on your iphone. The only thing I needed it for was the IR blaster to turn on my tv and get it to the correct input but that wasn't great either.
I believe thatt the best way to have voice control with apple music is to use your phone and push audio to a bluetooth or airplay enabled speaker. The harmoney hub just doubles up on a lot of stuff you can already do.
I've just ordered the harmony hub but I'm hoping I'm not going to regret it given the comments above. Does anybody have any further thoughts as to whether this is worth it or not? I am in the UK and will be using it with Alexa, sky plus, Samsung smart TVs, Yamaha sound bar and my iPhone. I gather the functionality with Alexa isn't as good in the UK as it is in the United States
I have started the setup process and it has successfully found my Samsung TV but then I receive a message saying that if I want to set up more devices when the message is closed press on at devices. However, I don't seem to be able to close this message and pressing or double tap and holding on add devices seems to have no effect. Can anyone help? I have tried to double tapping everywhere on the screen with no success.
Hi, I need to really revise this app‘s rating on Apple this. There is very little that is not accessible, at least once you figure it out. I’d be more than happy to help with any set up or issues you may have with harmony and the app. Feel free to email me :)
I can't believe how disappointed in Logitech I am at this moment. I have bought keyboards, speakers, etc. with no accessibility issues. I would have saved myself a headache by searching for this post ahead of time.
I purchased a Harmony Hub for my tv and components. I created account and added hub with no issues. The next screen is adding devices. Voice over doesn't activate, or interact with any buttons on the screen. There's also a window which can't be closed. This prevents you from moving to the next screen.
I emailed the CEO. Executive relations contacted me within an hour. I was told that he was checking with developers why no voice over compatibility. They could possibly remotely add devices. No promises!!
I can't believe the issues posted here haven't been corrected in 5 years. A major company like this not providing the most basic accessibility in 2018 is just mind boggling.
After tremendous research, not many products in this field. For channel changing with Alexa being my biggest requirement. I know about the Fire Cube, but that's redundant on certain features with my Toshiba Fire tv.
The web version runs the same as app, so no better experience. I would not recommend Harmony products. Unless you have sighted help for setups and disconnects.
Lots of contradictory experiences. If it works, how about a setup guide? W
