Mobile version of GoldWave and accessibility

Post by GoldWave Inc. »

Much of the feedback received for the Android and iOS versions of GoldWave has been about the lack of accessibility (TalkBack and VoiceOver). We intend to make the app accessible (on par with the desktop version) but it will take time. The main obstacle is that the crossplatform development environment we are using (Embarcadero RAD Studio) has zero support for accessibility in apps - not even basic access to TalkBack or VoiceOver APIs. Adding support appears to be a low priority for Embarcadero, so accessibility will have to be built from scratch separately for Android and iOS. Some work has already begun, but the majority of the work won't be possible until after the user interface is stable and consistent. With the recent updates to the iOS and Android versions, we are getting closer to that goal.
