Description of App: 

THIS IS THE 2018 PAID-FOR WOTJA V5 *ACCESSIBILITY* VERSION. IT WILL NOT BE UPDATED & IS SPECIFICALLY FOR USERS WHO NEED VOICEOVER SUPPORT (WHICH IS NOT IN WOTJA V19) Love creating music or writing? Use Wotja V5 to make your own ambient generative & reflective music, MIDI and 'text-to-music' melodies & music ideas. Generate 'cut-up' text for creative writing, too. ▸ USER REVIEWS "Masterpiece", "the best generative software that I have ever used", "Brilliant", "Extremely musical", "Deep and professional", "best MIDI composition tool", "Love Wotja!" ▸ CONTINUOUS EVOLUTION Wotja V5 is the evolution of SSEYO Koan, Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl & Tiklbox. It uses generative techniques we've been crafting for nearly 30 years. As you'd expect of a generative system with such a long history of continuous development, it is deep, unique & powerful. However, you don't need to be a musician or expert to use it. Anyone inquisitive can learn to master its power; see our video tutorials. ▸ ACCESSIBILITY VERSION 'Wotja A' V5 is the accessibility version of Wotja V5 and has support for VoiceOver. ▸ IMPORTANT 'Wotja A 2018' is the paid-for version of 'Wotja A' V5 with equivalent capabilities to that of 'Wotja A' V5 with an active 'Unlocked' In-App Subscription. [See Note 1]. ▸ KEY FEATURES [See Notes] • Easily generate beautiful live ambient music, melodies & MIDI • 100s of gorgeous generative music templates for mixing & editing are included • 130+ parameters for generative (MIDI) music composition • Multi-channel MIDI Out/In via CoreMIDI & Virtual MIDI to drive external MIDI synths • 'Text-to-Music' function to quickly generate reflective music & melodies using text in ANY language • Mix randomization options for fast creation of ideas, mixes & automatic albums • 48 independent content cells in 12 tracks for live mixing/generative cell sequencing • Editors to let you experiment with sound design & modular synth/FX networks • SF2 wavetable & WAV/Ogg loop support for custom sounds • Cut-up editor for word locking, syllable rules, word alternatives, 5 source fields & more • Mixdown recording to VIDEO, WAV, MIDI so you can easily use/share your creations • Up to 8 hours continuous live music generation [Music Play Time Timeout]; press play to restart • Inter-App Audio & Audiobus 2/3 support • iCloud & iCloud Drive support • Light & dark UI modes • Opens Noatikl, Mixtikl & Liptikl files • Lots more… ▸ NOTES 1) 'Wotja A 2018' will be updated during 2018 only and there are no plans for another accessibility version. To keep abreast of the Wotja system as it advances in 2019 and beyond, with whatever accessibility capabilities it might then have, then either purchase the relevant paid-for 'annual' version available at the time or get the subscription version and purchase the relevant subscription(s). 2) Wotja uses a combination of AI Techniques & heuristics to compose its generative music & melodies. 3) FREE Loop Paks: https://intermorphic.com/pak ▸ LINKS • Info, FAQ, Guide, Videos & More: https://intermorphic.com/wotja/5 • Privacy: https://intermorphic.com/privacy • Terms: https://intermorphic.com/tos ▸ FEEDBACK Please let us know via @intermorphic on Twitter or our website contact form.

Accessibility Comments: 

This version of the app is accessible. In my testing, I didn’t find it very intuitive to use, especially if you’re trying to manually create a mix, but that could be because I’m still learning how to use it.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The developer has made this older version available for VoiceOver users. The latest version of the app has been created using a platform called JUCE, which allows them to use the same code across multiple operating systems but doesn’t have accessibility support.
