In the app store, under what's new, in the latest version of the app part of the notes reads" VoiceOver support" . So I'm guessing VoiceOver support just got added. for the first time.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

First, find a washing tag in your clothing. For example in most T shirts the washing tags are at the back of the neckline or on a seam on the inside somewhere. Then I open the app and point my camera at the washing tags, for best results I found I had to point the camera steadily for at least 3 or 4 seconds at about 10 inches apart. Sometimes you can have 2 washing tags one on top of another. I picked my newest shirt so the chances of the symbols on the tags being faded from repeated washing was low and I showed the tag to sighted help and they confirmed that there was 5 symbols and they were not faded. Using the app As a blind person I could only recognize 3 out of the 5 symbols at once, where as the sighted person could get the app to recognize all 5 symbols at once but, that could be user error at my part lol.
