  • Accessibility Issues: This app was used with the various Accessibility features of the iPad turned on. The following issues/concerns or attributes of these features were found:Voice Over: There are only seconds per question; therefore, there is not always enough time for the student to hear the voice over read the question and answer choices before the 10 seconds run out and the app moves to the next question. Zoom: Works well with this app. By using this feature, the student will be able to increase the font size of the quiz questions and move around the screen to increase readability.The other built-in accessibility features of the iPad do not apply to this app. This app is a basic multiple choice quiz format app that is presented in black on white background with a very basic font. The layout is simple and consistent, allowing for the zoom feature to be easily used to increase font size for readability. The directions are very basic and easy to follow. There is feedback for both correct and incorrect answers; however, the voice over feature does not work with the feedback.
