Accessibility Comments

For the most part this app works very well with VoiceOver. The developer also has a good track record with VoiceOver support.

However, since the app introduced a layout builder in version 5, some of the data has become inaccessible.

Specifically, there are 4 ‘sections’ which you can add to the app layout, but are completely inaccessible to VoiceOver. These are precipitation, wind, temperature, and UV. In all cases, VoiceOver will read the heading for each of these, but not the data which is present. Visually the data is presented as a horizontal scrollable bar of data points for upcoming hours. As far as VoiceOver is concerned, this is not present on screen.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

The developer is committed to ensuring VoiceOver support in all his apps. The newly-released Mac OS companion is almost as accessible and he reassured me that is still a work in progress. The accessibility is most definitely by design.

I've recently installed this app on my iPhone 6s Plus and Apple Watch. I am not getting notifications, weather updates and local weather information on my iOS device and Apple Watch.
Do I have to purchase the Mac version from the Mac AppStore to receive weather notifications?

If you purchased it for iPhone, you should not have to purchase it a second time for the Mac. I also purchased it on the iPhone, but uninstalled it shortly thereafter as I found it not very intuitive.

unfortunately, because of the servers they use, you have to have the software on both devices. Sorry. I love the app, it is simpler than the default weather app and her commentary is amusing.

I have 25 achievements unlocked. However, I'd love to unlock more! Any idea what the three question marks are?

To answer your question pertinent to the mystery achievements, one of them requires to create the Siri shortcut to interact with Carrot directly. Afterwards, return to the home screen and keep interacting with Carrot via the phrase until she reprogrammes Siri not to recognise the phrase. You will know because after a few out-of-order retorts, she simply fils to respond. The other one is to report a bug, but this actually has a bug itself. You need not actually send a bug report; just go through the process to do so via the Settings screen towards the bottom, play with the e-mail for a minute, then cancel the draft. Return to the main screen. This should work. The other e-mail related achievements possess this same bug whereby an e-mail need not actually be sent. I personally have thirty-four of forty achievements unlocked, some of which were accomplished by exploiting certain little bugs. List the achievements locked, and I will assist if possible.

Hello. I recently installed Carrot as of yesterday and have a premium club subscription. I am having trouble getting the speech within the app to work with voiceover. When I open the app I have to turn voiceover off in order to enable speech by performing the gesture for speak screen. also, can I enable in app notifications and have the speech within the app speak them rather than voiceover.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
TIA.

Greetings! I too am having issues getting the robot to speak when using voice over! there are other apps that use artificial intelligence that will speak with voiceover enabled! Why not this one? This is very frustrating because I really like the app! Hopefully a solution becomes us sooner than later!
