Announcing Our New Campaign of the Month: ESPN ScoreCenter

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

ESPN is one of the leading sources for sports-related news, scores and statistics, with sports fans from around the world using the ESPN ScoreCenter app for iOS to keep up-to-date with news about their favorite sports and teams.

Unfortunately, the app currently contains a number of significant issues which make it mostly unusable with VoiceOver.

The most significant problem is that the live scores and results displayed in the app are completely inaccessible with VoiceOver.

Other areas of the app are somewhat accessible, but the large number of controls and page elements which provide little or no feedback to VoiceOver users makes it extremely difficult to browse and use the app in a meaningful way.

It would be wonderful to have this iOS app accessible to the many blind sports fans around the world, so we are asking that you all support our campaign and urge ESPN to add VoiceOver support to ScoreCenter.

Simply submit this pre-filled form to have your request mailed directly to ESPN. Please note that you will need to be registered and logged-in to the AppleVis website to access and use this form.

As always, the more people who support our campaign, the more likely it is that ESPN will listen. So, do please spare the few moments that it takes to add your support.

For more information on this and past campaigns, please visit the main Campaign of the Month page. On that page, you will also be able to nominate apps for future campaigns.
