I’ve only recently joined clubhouse, and I think it’s safe to say that I’m in love, I absolutely love the interface the whole invite system is in my view inspired, and the conversations i’ve been a part of have been really interesting and exciting.
The app is completely usable with voice-over which is another bonus.
I just thought of a few little tweaks that could be made to improve the experience for voice-over users in general, and just wanted your thoughts.
firstly, it can be quite labourious to swipe through the list of speakers to see who is unmuted and who is muted, I thought of a solution though, maybe for speakers who are muted, clubhouse could play a little tone before it mentions their name so you know already instead of having to wait right until the end to find out.
another thing I thought of was that if they could make more use of headings navigation, there are many different categories of things in the app and if you could swipe through those categories using headings, that would be I think quite useful alongside the usual swipe left and right gestures, I also like it if they could make it accessible in landscape mode as well but I don’t suppose that will happen any time soon.
The final element I thought of was that at the moment, if you invite a friend to room it doesn’t always tell you or give any indication whether the invite has gone through or not, in most cases it has but there is no voice-over feedback for this.
