Apple Watch Support
Device(s) App Was Tested On
As the description says, VoiceOver support was a high priority during development because of how widely TeamTalk is used in the blind community.. I have been a beta tester of this app for over a month and it works very well with VoiceOver. Be sure to explore the "actions" option on the rotor as it lets you quickly connect to servers or mute individual users.
One thing I would recommend you do when you get the app is go into the preferences and adjust the settings for text to speech announcements, in particular you probably want to turn on the options to read channel and private messages. This way you can see what's going on in the chat even if you have the screen locked or if the app is minimised.

I was also a beta tester on this app, and I'm glad to see that it's finally come to iOS. The dev did a hell of a good job making sure that VO works with it. My only complaint with this app is the audio profile used when connected to a server.
I am an admin on a server, I use an iPhone 6 Plus. I am trying to set some people up to move to the server, but I don't know how to create their user account. Does the admins of the server have to do it by computer, or is their a way to do it through the phone?
What's New in Version 5.1.3
Fixed crash issue when creating channel and VoiceOver active.
Fixed audio stream not resuming after phone call.
Fixed disconnect issue after long phone call.
Default to OPUS audio codec when creating new channel.
iOS 7.0 support (iPhone 4).
I'm running the latest version of TeamTalk 5 on an iPhone 6s Plus. Whenever I try to create a channel on the US public server, the app bumps me out to the home screen. Any suggestions to fix this?
I understand that on a computer, you can press f3 in Windows and get a browser within a channel. Suppose a channel has many mmedia files available to choose from. Can they be played with this app? Thanks.
