Creating a Petition for Telegram to be made fully accessible to VoiceOver users
Hi my friends:
AM thinking of creating a petition for making telegram more accessible on IOS, they made some small progress from a long time, but they stopped, and this app became so. important because it has some features that even Whatsapp does not have it.
but my Language may not help me, also to find a good accessible site for making a petition, so, if anyone here can create a petition for making Telegram accessible, and i can spread it out, and let's see what we can do to convince the Telegram company to help us more.
Thanks in advance for your help
I agree this is needed. Maybe those that use Voice over should message their Support and ask them to implament support for Voice over and tell them what it is.
I do not know where to go now, Hope someone can take this into second LVL and try to do sommething
Frankly, you're better off learning the Telegram API and building something yourself. I'd pay money for an accessible client.
I already tried to do this, and have been trying since 2016. their support has never once ansered any of my emails. In fact I get no convormation they even make it but a "thank. We'll get back to you" deal.
I bought a cheap phone just to use Telegram on it, and Telegram is somewhat accessible on Android 10, so strange really
Hi. I've already contacted the support team and still haven't gotten a response. This was about a month or so ago.
good luck. you will never hear from them. I've never gotten emails even after 3 years or so. It's beter making an app via their API.
I tried the Bright guide and NiceGram, nice gram is better, but also not so accessible, if you will try Telegram on android you will know that this app is really great
I've used it. It works, except when you want to access the links. all of them are unlabeled. I contacted them about this in 2017, 2018. 2019, you get the point.
I actually don't find the iOS app too bad.
It has some quirks but like some websites, once you get used to the quirks, it's pretty good.
Now, if you want to get into administering groups and such, then it gets much more fiddly.
but, using the iOS app in combination with Unigram for windows 10, it does pretty much what I want it to do.
Does accessibility need improving, yes of course, but to say it's unuseable is an exhageration.
I took it off my phone as I access links etc. That part is 100 percent inaccessible. Also the way it reads out time displays. I don't need to know I've ben talking for 600 seconds. also, it used to crash when I would delete a message. Btw, all of this has already been sent to the telegram team since about 2017-2019 .
How is bright guide? if there are problems has anyone reached out to the Bright guide developer?
I tried it, and as stated it does not support arabic, also, it's very very basic app
Yes, we have tried. The app just over all is not good, hardly works,is too basic for my needs, etc. give me unigram any day.
agree with Ramy. Denis, do you have the option to creating this interaction between Telegram developpers in order to explain our accessibility issues with that program?
Yeah, as others have already said, it is useless. You will never get any response. And also others said that unigram is acessible. Yeah, of course it is, but we also have lots of mac users, for me it is not convinient to switch from mac to windows only to use the telegram app. The accessibility issues are also that you cannot switch the language of the telegram app when you switched the language of the phone. So I believe the petition is needed.
There is a github thread and I might have some good news. Basically someone is taking accessibility over and you might se a change.
please give us details if possible, and when it will be true?
I respect this, and i hope it will be soon
it will be when it is. Let's give the guy some time to work through all of the issues we have so far posted.
