Accessibility Comments: 

List Recorder was designed for accessibility in the following 6 areas:

  1. Easy navigation - Information is presented in two easily navigated views, using standard interface elements so you can leverage your familiarity with how iPhone apps work. The VoiceOver cursor position is maintained so you don't lose your place as you navigate through your lists. If you get lost, you can easily get back to a known view with the left tilt motion. Simply rotate the device counter-clockwise until you hear auditory feedback. You can quickly dismiss a dialog, stop audio or editing. Continue to tilt left to navigate back to the home list. Additional tilt motions let you invoke edit mode or the toolbar without having to hunt for them.
  2. Rich audio feedback - All page elements are announced by VoiceOver with information in a speech-friendly format. List items read in an optimized short format by default. Additional details can be read including the amount of audio and text the item contains and the date it was created. VoiceOver reads an item's title if one exists or the audio is previewed if the item does not have a title. Audio preview length can be adjusted in settings. Extensive use of dialogs prior to destructive actions such as deletions, reordering or audio replacement protects against unintended loss of information.
  3. Easy to use but powerful audio capabilities - Two-button control of all record and playback functions. Accessible slider to control playback position as well as readout of current position. Guitar strums to indicate record begin, pause or end.
  4. Custom motions and gestures - Invoke common functions without having to hunt for them on the screen.
    • Push right to check an item.
    • Push left to read an item's details.
    • Tilt left to go back to a known view.
    • Tilt right to toggle edit mode.
    • Tilt forward for audio toolbar.
    • Back flip for wipe out dialog, which includes delete and undo.

    Individually turn off any of the tilt motions as well as landscape mode in settings.

  5. Text and Keyboard enhancements - Works well with Braille keyboard/displays and external keyboards. Text field is parsed and displayed as HTML, so VoiceOver reads it sentence by sentence. The keyboard comes up only in edit mode to prevent misinterpreted swipes from bringing up the keyboard when you don't want it. White on black mode provides better contrast than reverse video.
  6. Extensive built-in documentation - Introduction items provide a practice list that walks you through the basics of List Recorder. Short tutorials cover commonly used features. Tutorials are also online at . A reference manual is included. The manual is also online at . Additional help and user forums are on the website.
