Accessibility Comments


I really like this app, although there were a few buttons that needed to be labeled first. For instance, in the download queue each item has two unlabeled buttons - pause and cancel. In the main toolbar, three buttons used to toggle the display need to be labeled - Downloads, RSS Feeds and Search. Once you have done this, the app should be very simple to use. The integrated usenet search feature is particularly neat.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Hi Applevis users, Thanks for recommending this application here. I've added the tooltips to the action buttons for the NZB. The toolbar one is technically little trickier, but just ignore the last word there if your are licensed. Please contact me if I can make your usage of the application any easier for visually impaired users (I hope I wrote this using the right terms). Thanks again! Ger Teunis Team
