back chapters.

Accessibility Comments

Work for the most part very well. See below for Other Comments.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments

Love the fact the entire Old Testaments is all on your iphone without having to worry of internet connections. What makes this very enjoyable is the fact that all of the Books are in audio format being read by people. So no robotic voices or any kind of text to speech translation. So listening is very soothing and easy to listen. The interface I must say could be improved. Even though everything is clearly labeled I wish the placement of certain buttons were easier to locate. Swiping left to right will let you find everything you will need for this application. Look for the button labeled as Books. Click this button and this will let you select the book and chapter you wish for the application to read to you then select the Done button. Now you are ready to hit the Play button and the the book you have selected will begin to read at loud to you. If you stop the reading. It will remember where you have left off. The next time you start up the application it will start playing right where you left off. The audio buttons are always right below the center of your screen to make finding it easy. Previous, Play and the Next button are right there. The only thing I wish it had was the finger gestures recognition. It doesn't recognize any of the gestures I ride. For example, double finger tap to stop the reading will not work. You will need to hit the Play button to stop. It is a Free application and you like reading the bible. This is something I recommend in giving it a try. The author also have the New Testaments as well for download.
