accessible alarm clock, sleep tracker or dreamtalk recorders

iOS & iPadOS

Hello. I am looking for alarm clocks, sleep trackers and or dreamtalk recorders that are accessible with VoiceOver. I am using an iPhone SE and am running iOs 10.2. I want to try out some of these apps and see wich ones I like. I have tried Pillow, but that's NOT accessible as far as I know. I tried it and couldn't even set up an alarm so that won't work wich is annoying and I don't want to have sighted help every time I am going to bed or waking up so that means the app is officially not working for me. I have heard I am talking in my sleep wich is why I want a sleeptalk recorder and it has to be accessible. I have no sound on on my iPhone at night so I use it and listen to my iPod in headphones when sleeping.Thanks for any advice.

I use sleep cycle. You can track your sleep and set an alarm without sighted help. I think the app osts five dollars.

Trying it now. It appears the app is free but there are certain features that costs with an upgrade. I will try it though, downloading it now. It is sad that Yocto Alarm Clock isn't on the app store because that was an exelent alarm clock even though some sounds were quite loud. :-) Will give Sleep cycle a try hough I don't believe it records but I have heard it is great. I won't know untill I try but didn't know it was accessible untill now. :-)

Hi there! This app doesn't record, but you can set a bedtime on it. It's accessible. Try using the native clock app. I love it because I can easily set an alarm manually, or tell Siri `Set an alarm for whatever time I want.`

One of the reasons I like sleep cycle is because it knows when to wake you up, when you are in your lighest phase of sleep. Also, you can track your sleep without setting an alarm, and it tells you your quality of sleep after five days of use so it can be calbriated.
