The Quizlet App: Now With VoiceOver for Users with Impaired Vision

October 30, 2012

At Quizlet we're deeply committed to providing powerful and free learning tools to students everywhere, including those with special needs.

That's why we're very proud to announce complete VoiceOver support on the Quizlet App for iOS6 and up.

VoiceOver

VoiceOver is an advanced screen-reading technology from Apple that lets students hear what's onscreen and control their keyboard without visuals. So even if a student is vision-impaired they can still use the Quizlet app.

To enable VoiceOver on your iPhone or iPod, click on Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> VoiceOver

 

PS. Special thanks to iPhone-toting Quizlet user "Pumkey" who first recommended we support VoiceOver. We deeply appreciate feedback like this. Even though a 1-star iTunes review stings a bit at first, it's passionate users like this who help us continuously improve Quizlet :)

  28. bengals02 

    That's nice, but what if you don't have iOS6?

  29. Pegasus99 

    coolness!

  30. miaowmiaowh 

    please please please make an android app!!!!

  31. belladinonna0123 

    awesome!! it's nice to see quizlet showing consideration for visually impaired kids...a cause close to me because I'm partially visually impaired (need to wear glasses/contacts all the time) and I suffer from a rare eye disorder. kudos to quizlet for thier new VoiceOver technology

  32. bengals02 

    You need to read under the subheading of "Meet Joan Lee, Science Teacher" - "The Importance of Mobile" says, "Android is in the works!" Having it for iPad would be nice too though.

  33. goobledegak 

    I love this idea. Now Quizlet is catering to those with special needs. Amazing. Even Facebook among other companies hasn't done that. AHEAD OF THE CURVE!

  34. saras_sawhney 

    is an android app in development? it would be really nice if they made one :)

  35. zachsabel

  49. CyrilBiselx 

    You really have to do an iPad and Android app asap! We all have an iPad in my school and it will be fun to have the possibility to study offline...

  50. I_want_a_phoenix 

    I think that this is really nice of Quizlet!

  51. bcknapp Plus

    Android app please. Please open up more API functionality to developers other than just searching for packs. I'm talking about syncing my own packs, being able to edit and save them from a mobile app.

  52. belladinonna0123 

    quizlet, here's another idea...making a font selection option so we can make the font of our flashcards as big or small as we need it. It would be great for those of us who need glasses and/or contacts(one of those people being me) or have eye strain when they read small print (also me) who's with me??

  53. adrianakl184 

    @ belladinonna0123 I agree. And make this work for the iPad! We should be able to study offline on anything.

    First comment today ;D

  54. nbrizill 

    I love it, when it works. I have one-to-one iPads for small group instruction and I can only pull up my lists on two of my six iPads. I can't login or search for myself under username. Suggestions??

  61. adrianakl184 

    I downloaded this on my iPad! It's great1 Thx! ;)

  62. Kazaam 

    It would be nice if they also added a "create set" aspect to the current app. There are a lot of times where I'm studying something remotely however I want to review information that I'm in the process of learning (e.g. reviewing over Arabic words I've learned while reading an article on Al Jazeera while on the bus). I love the app and I love the site however I can't count how many times this thought has passed through my mind while sitting on the couch, vegging out a reading some Arabic to pass the time.

  63. jwsj2323 

    Pretty cool

  64. milespepsi99 

    Yeah. go 65 comment

    Please create an app for the Google Play market! You're missing half of the market out there with Droids!

  69. Collins31 

    Wow!!! awesome news, now <a href="http://marusia.com" rel="nofollow">voice over</a> services on iPhone.

  70. smexysunny 

    70 beats 68!!!

  71. vmdk7 

    one of the most important things about a product is accessibility, and Quizlet has finally done it with both site and app.

  72. Spencer32795 

    cool

  73. sharono1 

    I am visually impaired and could really use this on my Droid!!!!

  74. NicDisney 

    That's good, it'll be a very handy tool for those with impaired vision! How thoughtful of Quizlet! (:

  75. LOVE2DANCE19 

    Cool so going to use this voice over thing!!

  76. livstr16 

    I wish they would make a Quizlet app for the android. As a Android user, it hurts me to see that they don't have an app for Quizlet!

  77. bmendonc
