Apple Responds to Accessibility Issues With New iOS 6 App Store Design

Apple has quickly moved to address user complaints regarding the use of VoiceOver when browsing the redesigned App Store in iOS 6.

AppleInsider:

The improvements come only a few days after AppleInsider highlighted the fact that VoiceOver could no longer read application ratings. In previous versions of iOS, blind users could use the VoiceOver feature of an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to find out how well-reviewed an application was.

AppleInsider reader J. P. Shandra contacted the site on Friday to note that Apple had made the changes on its end, thus eliminating a need for an iOS update. He said VoiceOver now properly reads all ratings in the App Store, iTunes Store, and iBookstore.

AppleVis also noted the improvements to the storefronts, saying the application screenshots in the App Store are now clearly labeled for VoiceOver users. AppleVis is a website that advocates for blind and low-vision users of Apple products and applications.

“It’s great to see that Apple are still actively working on accessibility improvements to the App Store and are rolling out fixes in double-quick time,” AppleVis writer “David” noted.
