Version Of macOS App Was Tested On:
The app features tons of keyboard shortcuts to use and all the controls are correctly labeled. Just input the title/artist into the corresponding fields and hit Return or CMD+R to perform your lyrics query.. A few seconds later, the focus will jump straight into the lyrics's field and you'll be able to read them with your arrow keys or Braille display. Since it's a standard fields You'll obviously be able to copy and paste the lyrics wherever you want.
You can also use the automatic lyrics search with iTunes. Just play a song through iTunes while leaving Singer Song reader open and if lyrics were found, the app's Lyrics field will be automagically populated with the found text and you can sing along, particularly if you have a braille display. :)
you can also save the found lyrics in a text file using CMD+Shift+S or configure the app to automatically save your lyrics in a special folder defined in the app's preferences.
Here are several setup suggestions in order to improve the interface's accessibility:
- In the "view" menu, go to "specific columns" and check "1". This way, you'll avoid displaying the lyrics text divided into columns, which may be great for sighted users but no so VO-friendly.
- In the appearance" menu, make sure "full" menu item is checked to be able to access all interface elements.
- In the "control" menu, ensure that "Use Left/Right Arrow Keys" is unchecked. You'll then be able to use Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab to cycle through the websites your lyrics have been found on.
- Finally, label your fields correctly. If you want to use the tab key to cycle through them, the first one is "Title" and the seconde one is "artist". You should fill them carefully and check your spelling before performing your search, as it is important to get best results.
