Launch Announcement: The AppleVis Campaign Of The Month

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

I'm pleased to announce the launch of a new feature on the AppleVis site, our Campaign of the Month.

Each month we will select an app that currently has accessibility issues, and ask you all to contact its developers and encourage them to improve VoiceOver support.

To make this easy, we've created a handy little form that will do most of the work for you. The form even includes a draft message that you can either use as it is, or edit to your own liking.

The app we have chosen for our first campaign is Skype. In the past this has been quite accessible, but a number of people have reported a marked decline in VoiceOver support in recent versions. Considering the large number of VoiceOver users who use the Skype service, we are very keen to reverse this trend.

The more people who support our efforts, the more likely it is that developers will take notice. So, please take just a few minutes to add your voice to our campaign.

As well as supporting our current campaign, you can also nominate apps that you think should feature in a future campaign.
