Accessibility Comments

Basically the fields don't read. See my other comments section for more info.

Usability

The app is totally inaccessible.

Other Comments

The log in fields don't read, the prefs don't read, nothign reads. Vo says unknown. I encourage you all to contact support@voxox.com nicely and explain what needs work and why it is iportent that this app be made accessible. I've contacted them for around 2 years now, I believe. The ios app is accessible though. Over all this is a grate app for staying in touch and does not need a c ell network so it will work if let's say your phoen is dead.

Hi everybody!

My name is Jon, and I'm one of the Support Agents over at Voxox. I just had a visually impaired user point me to this site and describe some of the problems our Mac version of the app is having with VoiceOver. I'll be bringing this up with our developers this week, and I hope we can make some changes to make that version of the app easier to use for our visually impaired users.

In the meantime, feel free to join the conversation on our own community site: https://getsatisfaction.com/voxox/. I love being able to point to user posts when I bring these kinds of things up with our developers!

I really enjoy the ios app and if the fixes are made, would enjoy using the mac app as well.

Hey Marrie,

I'm not sure what would have happened to your email from way back then! We did expand soon after that, and it's possible that a few emails got lost in the transition. I did just get out of that meeting with our developers, and we brought this up. It turns out that it's not an issue many of them were aware of, but they certainly are now!

We're still in the research stage of the process, but it's a great first step. If you (or anybody else) is interested, consider joining this conversation on our community site: https://getsatisfaction.com/voxox/topics/voiceover-qu4hr.

The more we hear from users, the more pressure we can put on our developers to prioritize this issue!
