App Rating Deserves Review Due to Accessibility Improvements
I'm using this app on an IPhone 6+, and it seems to have improvements that merit a review of its accessibility rating. The tabs on the bottom of the screen are labeled. VoiceOver seems to read the boards just fine, although I think the use of headings would make it much easier to scroll through things. I can't say if the "tap and hold" gesture for pinning works, because I wasn't aware of it, but I was able to pin something using a doubletap on the "pin" button. Enhancements could still be made for a better VO user experience, but overall, this app seems much better.
Pinterest Just Redesigned Its App For Blind People
RE: Pinterest Just Redesigned Its App For Blind People
thanks for posting. This app is truly redesigned. It works much better than the last time I tried to use the app.
Grr Pinterest still has issues
So I pulled it out of my hamster brain that pinterest is supposed to work better now; I excitedly tried it as the text book I am reading suggested that I do a search for low-tech assistive technology devices. So I got to playing around. I found that I could click on pins quite easily, but couldn't read directions for recipes, and sometimes had a hard time finding ingredients. It seems like the app places more emphasis on telling you more stuff to click on, until you find yourself in a sea of pins with no remembrance of how you wound up there. A guide or podcast would be most helpful, as I think this is a very cool site, but still needs work. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to get to different parts instead of learning about easy recipes or dyi gifts.
