let's contact developers and see if they can make iOS 7 jb tweaks more accessible
By Jessica Brown, 9 March, 2014
Hi. I have noticed that a lot of the jailbreak tweaks for iOS 7 have parts that are not accessible. If you have one or more jailbreak tweaks that are not working with VoiceOver, I strongly encourage you to email the developer, explain the accessibility problem you are having, tell them you can give them some links to info on how to make apps accessible with VoiceOver if they want it and ask them if they could please try to fix the accessibility problems. If they do say they want the links, there are some links on this site that lead to info on how to program apps for accessibility that you could give them. I also think they are more likely to fix the problems if they here it from more then one person. So if you do email a developer about an accessibility problem, please post the name of the tweak and the problem you are having with it here so other people can also email the developer about it. To email a developer, just open Cydia, search for the package who's developer you want to email, then double tap the name of the developer in the description. In the alert that pops up, there will be 2 or 3 people you can email, so make sure you double tap the correct one, which in this case, is the name of the developer, not Cydia's owner or the package host, which will be the other 2 options. After that, your mail app will open with the email address and subject already filled in. There will also be some text in the email body, don't remove it, just write above it. You can email a developer about a package no matter if you have it installed or not, so if you do not have a package installed or you do not want to install it, but you do want to send an email to the developer, you can still do that. The way to send the email is the same no matter if you have it installed or not. However, if you do have it installed and you do not want to search for it again, you can also get to it by going to the manage tab and selecting packages, then select the package who's developer you want to email and the description page with the developer's name on it will come up. I also might do a podcast on how to email Cydia developers. Now this post is getting kind of long so I will post another post in this thread with the jailbreak tweaks and the problems I am having with them. If you are having problems with jailbreak tweaks, please post them here so we can spread the word. Thank you.
