I think the inclusion of integration with the iOS VoiceOver integration would be a great feature for sight-impared users as well as everyone else.


I am not sight-impaired but I use VoiceOver almost everyday on my iPhone to have books in my iBooks app read to me. VoiceOver allows me to control the speed in which it is read and it automatically turns the pages for me. I have read hundreds of pages this way while driving or exercising. Being able to have my Accordance modules read to me in this way would be a huge benefit.


Thanks for considering my request,

Ahshuwah Hawthorne

I make the phone read to me too, which is great, but it's essential for those with sight issues. This may be a little more difficult for Accordance since I think the app isn't using normal text files (I suspect that is also why they can't use the stock text selection mechanism from Apple), but I agree with the original poster. Every iOS app should implement VoiceOver if possible.
