Accessibility Comments

The initial demo document includes a bunch of unlabeled buttons. However, creating a new document gets rid of these, so I am not sure what they are for or if I will ever see them again. The app seems to get along quite well for what I want it to do, so I am going to say these mysterious buttons are unimportant. If they return I will update this entry.


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

Other Comments

This app could not be simpler. Turn on the Preview mode to enable an HTML area below the input text field that changes as you type. This shows what your Markdown will look like as an HTML document. All functions of the app have keyboard shortcuts, and the interface is the standard one you get in Text Edit and other OS10 editors.
