  • 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: The majority of this app is presented with graphics and art; therefore, the voice over does not describe what's on the screen or read the text. Instead, it reads the programming buttons. Also, when voice over is turned on, it is difficult for the user to complete the activities, due to the tapping requirements for voice over. Zoom: When zoom is turned on and used, too much of the page is missing and the user cannot use the keyboard or other sections of the app to complete activities. Layout: The layout is very creative, colorful and consists of graphics and artwork. Although this may be appealing to many users, it may be distracting to some.
