Update Has Made This App Accessible!
Although, the new version has come with a revamp of the UI. It also comes with some accessibility improvements as noted below in What's New. However, I still have issues with in the articles themselves. It seems rather strange how it works. For me swiping to the left and right I was not able to read the article. If one would touch the center where you think the article is. You will a portion of that article. Move your finger up or down and it will read that line just fine. Now doing a flick to the right or left will skip the entire article to the next or previous element.
Would love to hear in what others have found with this new version of the Fox News.
