Accessibility Comments

fully accessible the only thing I haven't figured out, is there is a slider next to the wake on lan option and I haven't worked out what that does yet. There is also a button when you tap on devices, this is labelled as ic generic when you first see it, tapping on this button allows you to set icons to identify what a device is, this button changes depending on what icon you have selected, for example laptop, tablet etc, it is called generic at first because this is the default icon for devices unless the user changes them.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

This is a really cool app. Anyone know what happens if you delete an item from the list does it remove it from the network or just hide it?

After the update released today this app is now completely unusable. Most buttons are unlabeled, and every item in the list of devices is blank.

I have contacted the developer and outlined the issues for VoiceOver users.

On the Devices Tab from the top left the first unlabelled button refreshes the device list. The second unlabelled button appears to b the Account and Settings button.

Once in the devices list swiping right then left will cause VoiceOver to try and get the label of an item. So you will get the announcement “Has Possible Text” followed by the devices’s label. This is far from ideal and I await further developments.

Hello.

Apologies for having missed that. It seems that a standard component of iOS (Stack View) is not automatically forwarding the accessibility hints to the components it contains. We're replacing the behaviour in the critical places so the VoiceOver shall be restored in the next release.

Kind regards

That was fixed quickly: The main screen listing all the network devices is accessible again. I find howeever that other parts, like the Digital Fence, still need some accessibility work.

Just let them know. They have been great at fixing things quickly!
