I’m developing a weather app, and would love some help with ensuring that it is fully accessible
I'm a small indie developer creating a weather app called Weather Gods.
It's quite close to completion and I have been doing my best to make it accessible.
I'm about 70% complete and would love to get some feedback and hopefully make it into a very accessible app.
Let me know if you could possibly help me.
I am interested to be a beta tester for your weather app when it is ready. Have a wonderful day!
Hello! thank you for showing an interest in making accessible weather apps!
I tried finding weather apps & that was like pulling teeth!
You'd like suggestions & I have one or two for you!
1. Do not put your forecasts in tables!
Voiceover has problems with them 2ecause the hour is on one side & the forecast is on the other side. This includes the daily forecasts & any other forecasts you put in the app (UV. index etc)
The best way to remedy the iisue would be to put the forecasts in list form
For example it could go like this
12:00 Chance of showers & thunderstorms
Mostly cloudy with a high of 86 & a low of 70
That's just an example but I hope you see what I mean.
2. I think the best way to determine if your app is accessible, is to have people test it. I'm sure there are some people on here who would love to be a tester & see how accessible the app is.
Could you please post here when this app is completed? I'd really love to download it & see how it works if it's free &/or not too exuberentally priced! And I'm sure there are a lot of people on here who'd love to beta test.
Thank you again for showing an interest!!
