iOS and iPadOS
I'm an iOS developer working for Bleacher Report on their TeamStream apps. TeamStream provides sports information and articles. We believe we have about 150 users who use the app with VoiceOver enabled. We were very happy to get unsolicited feedback from one of our VoiceOver users when a change we made inadvertently made the app extremely difficult to use with VoiceOver. To be honest, I'm embarrassed to admit, we had never even considered accessibility. The app changes very frequently, but before every release I run the app with VoiceOver enabled to try to ensure a good experience for our VoiceOver users. But I also realize that, because I am not a regular VoiceOver user, I am a very bad judge of how well the app is working in that respect! I would very much appreciate feedback on how we could improve the app! The app is free and is available here: http://bleacherreport.com/mobile Thank you!
Re: Team Stream
Thank you Dave!

probably in 2.6.1 release (next one down the line)
2.6 released, 2.6.1 on the way
Wow this is great!!
Wow I forgot to make my list
How to access the live gamecasts?
I must say..
My teamstream app closes every time I try to open it. Any suggestion on what I should do?
Can you please provide more info?
I'm sorry to hear that teamstream is closing on you! Can you please try deleting the app, and installing a fresh version from the app store?
Can you let me know what device and version of iOS you are using?
Thanks for reaching out to VoiceOver users!
I wish there were more app developers like you. Thank you so much for your efforts. I really enjoy Team Stream's articles and notifications, and those features work really well for me using VoiceOver. I found MLB a bit cumbersome under the League Scores section of the app but still find it useable . This is minor, and the only real issue I have had with the app is how VoiceOver pronounces "Team Stream". My wife heard me using my iPhone one day and asked me in a very serious tone, "What kind of app is Teen Stream?" This was not an isolated incident. It also happened at work with a co-worker. LOL
iPad mini and 7.1.2
A previous article button
A previous article button would be handy (akin to the back button in a browser). I know it is available within an article but for some reason not from article to article.
Previous article button
Hi Reubs- I'm trying to think of how we could offer a "Previous Article" button. Typically the navigation is from a team stream (the list of articles for the team), then to an article, then back to the stream. If you are in an article and navigate to another article, there is a "nav bar" at the top of the article with forward, back and reload buttons- but you have to pull down to expose these buttons (and I don't know if they have voice over descriptions - I will check.)
If this nav bar were more easily accessible, would that work?
Thanks for your feedback!
Josh - please try again
I had tried messaging you directly last summer but I don't know if you got my message. Please try uninstalling the app completely - as in, not just killing it but totally removing it from your device. Then, install the current version from the app store.
