As of 10/06/2012, this app is fully accessible. They totally revamp this app as of July of this year. They have made strides in addressing accessability issues.

As I write this, I sit here with tears not just streaming, but literally pouring! down my face. To the individual who posted this, you cannot know what this app means to me! Thank you so so much for recommending it! I'm not going to get into a theological discussion up here. That isn't what this site is for, but I've got to tell you all at least a very very short story regarding this app. I have been struggling with a lot of anger, and lots of pain in my life. My dad passed away from cancer about a year ago, which was probably the hardest thing I ever have endured in my life. I have been going round and around in circles with my doctor not listenning to me nor believing me about my symptoms, etc etc. The point? is, I really have been questionning God, wonderring if he really still cared, etc. Then, after much praying, that God show me his mercy, and love, he led me up here to Applevis, and the rest is the history of a blessing! I opened to Romans chapter 8, and started listenning, and as I said a second ago, now, am crying profusely! What a miricle! This is exactly the words I needed again to hear! And what a glorious way to bring God's Word into my heart! Thank you so so much for this recommendation, and Thank you God! Praise be his name!

I remember hearing Alexander Scourby's fantastic narration of the KJV bible years ago on a site that utilized Real Audio files. I'm considering getting this app for my iPod Touch, but I'm wondering if the current version as of November 2012, 1.2, is still usable with Voiceover? I gather from the previous comments that it is, but just like to make sure before I spend $20.00.

Hi, I've gotten this app and hope I'm not sorry I did so. It does indeed seem very accessible though there are times when it seems like I can't get myself back to for instance the part of the screen where the menu button is if I'm in text. But my actual question is once you select your book and chapter for instance how on earth do you get the Scourby narration to read it to you? I'm sure it's probably ridiculously obvious and I'm just missing it but so far it eludes me completely. Thanks in advance for your help and overlooking my apparent brain power lack today (smile).

To play the Scourby bible, find the home button at the bottom center of the screen. Move straight up from there. You will find a select button. Move up again and you will find the play button. Double tap to begin playing and double tap again to stop play. HTH

Hi, Thanks ever so much I never would have come upon that myself. Someone so needs to do a podcast on this thing. I did find that there are times after my selection finished playing that VoiceOver didn't seem to want to speak properly and I had to play around quite a bit to get it back to behaving for me. I'd read that you can also change the speed of the Scourby narration. Might you know where that is? Thanks again for your help.
