accessible lyrics app

iOS & iPadOS

Hey all!
Does anyone know of an accessible song lyric app? Where I can go in, find a song/artist & find the lyrics to a song & read them? Also, th alility to find songs by lyrics would be nice too. Thanks in advance!

The Genius official app works well. It was once inaccessible, but has been corrected.

You can just use the default music app if you sub to Apple Music. You can look up songs by lyrics, and read them if you expand the player. Kind of fun to do that with a Braille display and sing along while the song is playing. lol Of course, not all songs will have lyrics available though.

Hi, When you say to expand the player in Apple Music, how do you do that? Thanks.

When you start playing a song the mini player will have the name of the song just above the tab bar at the bottom of the screen, along with the play and skip buttons. If you double tap on the name of the song or the album art, the player will expand to fill the whole screen. I find this makes it much easier to control playback. There will be a lyrics button at the bottom of the screen here if lyrics are available. When you select that, you can just read them as normal.

Hi! I've got a question about Shizam. I've heard that Shizam is not very acceisible. Is it true? If so, has it changed over the years? Has accessibility changed since they were taken over by Apple? I'm thinking about trying it.
I think I'm going to have a few lyric apps. lol
Thanks in advance!
