Accessibility Comments

The app is accessible but VoiceOver lags in large documents. When reading and editing with a Braille Sense display, the cursor and VoiceOver are not in sync. There are three unlabeled buttons near the top of the screen between one for accessing documents and another for changing font. The keyboard contains an extra row with tab, double quote, single quote, and other buttons. To move through many pages, it is best to use scrolling commands before pressing double tap to edit text, which causes the keyboard to appear. Pressing double tap on a document does not cause it to open. The pass through gesture (double tap and hold) followed by a split tap should work to open a document. Flicking before opening doesn't work; using a finger to find the exact location and then opening with the pass through gesture does. I have not attempted to select text and change font, so I cannot yet comment on the accessibility of those features. We finally have an iPhone app to edit RTF files; however, the question of its practicality with VoiceOver lagging remains.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

Removing advertisements is possible through an in app purchase of $0.99. Unfortunately, advertisements continually refresh the screen, which makes reading and editing almost impossible. If working with a Braille display, a pattern of dots (looking like the Braille letter V) seem to indicate page breaks.
