Other Comments

I originally reported these issues to both EA and Hasbro in 2010. Nothing has improved with regards to the accessibility of this app in the intervening eight years, but EA has recently created an accessibility portal, so I'm posting a bug report there and hoping EA will give these games some attention.

Version 3.7.0 was released on 24 September 2014 and it appears the app remains completely inaccessible to VO Users.

What's New in Version 3.7.0:

Hey word warriors, want to recreate the feeling of a real-time in-person game? Try the new Speed Play mode where you and your opponent can agree to 2 or 5 minute turns. If words aren't played in time, nudge and forfeit options are unlocked.

We’ve also updated the Official SCRABBLE Dictionary to include 5,000 new words, including selfie, chillax, and geocache!
