Accessibility Comments

This is just about playable, but quality and level of feedback for VoiceOver users is inconsistent and at times frustrating. On the app's main screen, where you select the difficulty level, VoiceOver doesn't give feedback on which is selected. On the game screen, initial impressions were quite positive, as the board of letters can be explored by simply dragging your finger around the screen. However, no feedback is given when letters are selected, and I'm still unsure as to whether a double or triple tap actually does this. Also, the list of words at the bottom of the screen doesn't provide any feedback for VoiceOver users to indicate which have been found. It's okay, but could be so much better.

VoiceOver Performance

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Hello, I use an Iphone 6, and though I agree with the comments above about some needed sounds for Voiceover, I would still recommend this app as many others are much worse; it is playable by VoiceOver. I plan to email the company with feedback.
