Our digital technology and online media team have tested the usability of various task management apps for blind and vision impaired users. Due to the inbuilt accessibility features found in iOS devices, only apps available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch have been reviewed.

Below is a review of Remember The Milk version 2.0.2. The app has since been updated and users have reported decreased accessibility on the iPhone.

The US telecommunications provider AT&T is offering Mobile Accessibility Lite, a suite of eleven accessible Android applications free to vision impaired AT&T Android users. Normally AU$99.00, Mobile Accessibility Lite is free to AT&T customers for a limited time. This is the first time that this suite of applications has been offered free of charge to people who are blind and vision impaired.

Mobile Accessibility Lite, developed by Code Factory, is a suite of 11 accessible applications for everyday online activities such as email, phone calls and contact lists, SMS, calendar and web. It also has a screen reader that replaces the standard Android text-to-speech software as well as speech recognition for easier text input, such as writing an SMS or email.

Update: goMoney even more accessible says ANZ

no

ANZ contacted Media Access Australia this week to let us know that the accessibility issue that prevented users from reviewing payment input details has been solved in the latest update to its goMoney iPhone app. 

This issue, which we reported on in our article about ANZ goMoney supporting blind and vision impaired customers, was actually fixed in the last update but this was not reflected in ANZ’s Frequently Asked Questions web page.

ANZ goMoney supports blind and vision impaired customers

no

ANZ banking customers can now access the ANZ goMoney app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch using VoiceOver, Apple’s inbuilt screen reader technology.

According to ANZ’s frequently asked questions, the app is accessible with VoiceOver, with the exception of the ‘learn more’ screen and the review payment input details when using the Pay Anyone and BPAY® features.

ANZ supplies a workaround method for customers trying to access their individual transactions on the transaction list page.
