Accessibility Comments: 

SpotEQ is generally easy to use. However, in order to make adjustments on the actual equalizer (window where desibels are shown), the VoiceOver needs to be temporarily turned off and adjustments can be made by sliding the finger up or down on the screen. Fully blind users cannot be certain in advance which sound element to be touched but it can be clearly heard as the output changes especially if the headphones on. When you are happy with the output settings, the VoiceOver can be turned on again. This might be a tricky way of enabling output changes but this works.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

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.

Other Comments: 

In addition to other various adjustments, you are able to decrease the volume of the music also while using headphones. This app might be a solution if it has been challenging to hear what VoiceOver is talking while music is playing especially, if you have not been fully satisfied with VoiceOver's audio ducking. SpotEQ does not affect the system settings. You can find FAQ section on Settings.
