Accessibility Comments

This app is quite accessible. The only thing to worry about is the Continue button after answering a question, that sometimes is a bit hard to find. The power-up buttons are not labeled with their names, but with the amount of coins they use. hey are, flicking from left to right: Extra time, bomb, double chance, and skip.

: Now there is a new game mode in which you challenge other players to a series of questions. The faster and accurate the better. It is not possible to choose the player you want to deal with, it is not accessible. You can still pick random players or accept games from friends and random people.

iOS Version

VoiceOver Performance

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments

Some questions are visual questions, obviously impossible for us to answer. Fortunately the majority of the questions are text based ones.

Hi
If you go to chat, you should be able to add friends. Go to chat, the search for a name, it should pop up with suggestions, click on their profile and click add friend. Hope this helps

Ok. I'm having a slight brain fart here. How do I read chats in the new version? I'm sure I'll kick myself once I find out the answer.

Take care and be blessed.

Submitted by Jen on Sunday, March 29, 2015

At the bottom of the screen, where it says "home header alpha", "friends header alpha", etc., there's an unlabeled button, between those two I think. That takes you into chat, and then it's just like normal.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Sunday, March 29, 2015

Oh. Did someone bring this to ther attention I don't speak spanish and they don't respond to emails so I have no clue if they get them.

Take care.

Submitted by Jennifer Kent on Monday, March 30, 2015

I did contact them in English about accessibility what we could do is write up a post in English then use google translate to put it into Spanish and ship it off that way. Then while we are at it we could direct them here like I tried to do not knowing about this forum topic. I have no idea what my username is much less how to find it. I just signed up with facebook let me check my profile I cant find it and now know my device lost my twitter or things are off somewhere oh well I am rambling. thank you all for the information.

It would be nice if you can have unlimited lives because I play a lot of games and by the time I get done all of my turns, I can't accept any new game requests because I ran out of lives. Love the game though.

A few questions about trivia crack:
A. When I win a match I am awarded three points. Are these the same points I can spend two, say, skip a question, etc?
B. Once in a great while somebody will reject a game. Why do they do this?
C. What is the criteria for achieving a new level? I ask this because sometimes I achieved a new level and I haven't won a game in that round.
D. What is the benefit of beating other players? Is there more than one way to gain a level?
E. Are there deleterious side effects to having a bad ratio of right answers to wrong answers? Other than the fact that you won't win as many games.oh, and the fact that other players can spot your weaknesses by scrutinizing your stats.
F. I sometimes use the SKIP option but what does the BOMB do?
G. If anyone wants to play against me my game name is GordoCerdo17.963. But how will I know you, your game alias may be different from your AppleVIS alias?
H. What actual effects do the ratings have, i.e., boring or FUN? might a question be removed because of the ratings?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, April 30, 2015

Someone asked if they could have unlimited lives. I answered they could go to the store and get them in trivia crack's app.

Take care.

Is there a way to invite friends that do not yet play Trivia Crack from the app itself? Can you invite other friends who aren't currently playing the game from Facebook, Twitter, etc. or by e-e-mail? If so, how does one do this?

◉ Rediscover the world of Trivia Crack with a new feature: collectable cards! Use the cards to get awesome prizes!.
◉ Bug fixes.

Submitted by Misty Dawn on Thursday, August 13, 2015

All right.

I just finished a game with someone and, when it took me back to the main list (that says "new game", "their turn" "pending" etc.), I had a little thing at the top of all these lists that said something like "collect, collect, add". That's all VoiceOver would say and, when I tried to tab through to get to the other options, my TriviaCrack app first locked up and eventually crashed. It continues to exhibit these behaviors every time I've started it up.

Is anyoene else having these issues? If so, how do I fix this without losing my current data such as scores, rankings, games played, etc.? Also, what is this "collect, collect, add" thing? Once, when I clicked on one of the "collect" things, it made a clicking noise but I couldn't tell what that noise was.

Also, below the "collect, collect, add" thing is a thing saying "get new cards".

Submitted by david b on Thursday, August 13, 2015

Hi,
This is in response to the person who said their app kept crashing. I've only experienced this once so I don't know why it happens to you all the time but one of my friends is having the same problem. Also, the cards are a new feature. Every time you answer a correct question, you fill the gem meter, x/50 and then you win a gem. Click the get more cards button and then click the push button. There are three, push the first one. After that you get a card and that card can be added to an empty slot which will give you a bonus. I don't know what the bonus does but that's how it works. Apparently you can also trade cards but I haven't figured that out.

Submitted by Nina on Friday, August 14, 2015

Hi,
What are the cards for and how do you add them?
Also if anyone knows the developer's contact info could you post it here? I speak Spanish and would like to attempt to contact them directly; this app needs a lot of work.
Thanks

OK, guys, on occasion, I've always gotten a screen that suddenly appears and says something like "app boy slid oop" or maybe it's supposed to be "app boy slide-up"? In any case, it didn't go away when I tried double-tapping it with VoiceOver on, so, what I used to do was just close down the app and bring it back up and that would get rid of the "app boy slid oop" screen.

However, in the latest version, I tried that and nothing happened. So, I turned off VoiceOver and tapped near the bottom of the screen. While it got rid of the "app boy slid oop" screen, I'm not sure what else it did in the process.

Any ideas?

Submitted by Misty Dawn on Friday, September 4, 2015

OK, so, I don't know if they've released a new update recently, but, now, the game is crashing worse than it usually has been.

Anyone else experiencing this now?

Also, seems the developers just keep giving us lip service about correcting these issues on the rare occasion when they respond. I think we just need to keep after them. A squeaky wheel will eventually get fixed, as it were. Also, maybe a bit of Twitter shaming for those of us who are on there will do the trick. (I did this for Duolingo and it seems they finally addressed the accessibility issues.)

Submitted by Kevan on Monday, September 21, 2015

The crashing problems with VoiceOver have been fixed in the latest update.

Submitted by Misty Dawn on Monday, November 9, 2015

Does anyone know if there is a way to search the question bank to see if there is already a question like the one you want to submit before you submit it so that you don't wind up submitting a duplicate question?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, November 9, 2015

No ther never has been a way. This woudl be classified as a form of cheating. If the community sees it as a repeat they will let you know.

Has anyone tried version 2.4 with IOS 8.4 and IPhone 5? I tried it out and can't seem to figure it out at all.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Hello,
just to warn you that Trivia crack's VoiceOver usability is gradually improving.
Latest 2.8 update has most buttons labelled, for example the values regarding the store, lives, spins, coins, gems ... and the dock at the bottom of the screen: stats, home, chat, menu.
The only part which is not yet accessible is the bonus values of cards, for example it says, "chief tito: 6 every 16 hours", instead of saying "6 spins every 16 hours".
But they are working on it.
The complete list of cards with respective value is here.
http://www.applevis.com/forum/ios-gaming/complete-trivia-crack-list-cor…

I have posted a thread regarding accessibility and VoiceOver, in Trivia crack's reddit community:
http://reddit.com/r/triviacrack - on reddit I'm identified as "talksina".
That community is read by developers so we can all share feedbacks there.
It's not true the etermax team is ignoring us, I feel they're gradually satisfying our needs, but they must learn too.
I'll update the list if new card machines come in!

Submitted by Callum on Thursday, May 26, 2016

Hi,

Is anyone else having an issue in the latest version where the question isn't read out? For me, the list of answers and power ups is read out but the question is nowhere to be found, I can't even find it when tapping or sliding my finger around the screen.

Submitted by DPinWI on Thursday, May 26, 2016

As previously discussed in this thread, the questions are not being read in some circumstances. It appears this happens when playing against a second opponent in a single game session. If you close the app in the task switcher, and reopen it for each different opponent, it does not appear to have an issue reading the questions.

Yes, it's clunky, but it seems to work for me.

Submitted by charles on Thursday, May 26, 2016

In reply to by DPinWI

I have asked them on numerous occasions to increase the time to answer the questions back to 30 seconds because Voice-Over users cannot get the questions quickly enough to still have time to answer them, in particular, when foreign languages come into play or in the case of difficult names for Voice-Over to pronounce, and we have to review them letter by letter before choosing our answer. I have never gotten a response, nor to I know of anyone who has. Now, with the latest update, time will run out while we wrestle with an apparent bug! I'm done with the app.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, May 26, 2016

For me I can get the question faster then the 20 seconds. Plus I d't have auto update turned on on my device so I'll keep trivia crack as I now have faith they will fix it.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Monday, June 13, 2016

Hello,
sorry if you didn't hear from me, about Trivia Crack; latest 2 updates were not that happy, for accessibility, and I noticed someone already wrote that.
Now, I find 2.14 version, very funny to play; accessibility issues have been solved, and now questions are read automatically by VoiceOver, both in challenge and in classic mode. I am having a lot of fun with it, even because when you miss a question, it reads the correct answer to you, so you know what to answer if you meet that question again.
Now, there is another issue on the dashboard, the VoiceOver focus jumping here and there randomly, but nothing preventing playback to go on, it's on trivia's home and not on the gameplay itself.
Card bonus values now are correctly readable, I heard a new machine is coming so I'll update the cards database accordingly.
I contacted the developers during the time where serious issues were there, both on reddit and on e-mail
and they answered me. Don't know if it's just luck, or it's because I gave them a step by step procedure for issues, as I was writing a professional bug report.
Reporting bugs is part of my job, so I don't distinguish what is a hobby or what is work, when I talk to developers it's like I am Always working.
I also made them aware of the 20 seconds timing too short for a VoiceOver user, hoping they will increase timing.
But I am not sure they will fix this issue, as TriviaCrack is multi-Platform and I know iOS has a code line which can allow programmers to control if voiceover is on or off; but for facebook's game - http://apps.facebook.com/triviacrack - and android app, I do not think there are ways to control if a screen reader is turned on or off.
So, I cannot be sure this fix is technically possible; they should increase the global timing, allowing also sighted people to have 30 seconds instead of 20, and I'm not sure this is what they may want to do.
Bye for now.

Submitted by DPinWI on Monday, June 13, 2016

this latest update has fixed the bug which caused a second game in a single session to have issues. Now, we can play through several games without the need to kill and relaunch the app between each game.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Hi, yes, in latest update it is really becoming better and better, now it is no longer needed to kill the app.
I just contacted etermax to tell them about the issue of jumping VoiceOver focus on the game's dashboard, and to suggest them to increase the question's timer to 30 seconds again.
They answered me they are going to do their best. This does not mean warranty, but at least I had feedback.
I'd also suggest reddit community to contact if you've trouble.

Hi, just to warn you that I have updated the cards machines database. You just find it by searching Trivia Crack from applevis's web search engine.

Submitted by Misty Dawn on Wednesday, June 15, 2016

OK, so, it seems that the ability to submit questions is still inaccessible, at least to the extent that which answer is wrong and which is right is not indicated by VoiceOver.

So, off-hand, does anyone know, when you list the answers for the questions you submit, which one is supposed to be the right answer and which ones are the wrong answers?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Submitting questions on trivia crack has ben accessible and possible for a few years now. All you need do is the following.

  1. Type your question.
  2. Hit enter. The first thing is the right answer.
  3. The second field after that is the first wrong answer
  4. The next is wrong answer number two
  5. The third is wrong answer 3.

After that it's quite simple.

I have a link showing how it is done.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Hello, I'd like to ask a question to all trivia crack users.
Before reporting it to Etermax, I'd like to verify with other players.
After updating to 2.16, which came out Yesterday:
do you find the bottom menu has disappeared? I mean, the menu showing chats, friends, menu, weekly chart, home?
I do not see it at all; I turn VoiceOver off to switch from a tab to another, as right now I know approximate position of elements.
I am not sure this is a bug, as I have iOS10 developer preview, and may be its fault.
Or because I have a tutorial or some bad stuff which is coming over the window and i don't see it. Don't know, so I wish to ask other users before giving feedbacks to tc devs

Submitted by DPinWI on Wednesday, June 29, 2016

On my iPhone 6, running iOS 9.3.2, and yesterday's Trivia Crack build, I cannot access the bottom menu either.

It's not just your device.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Thursday, June 30, 2016

Hello, thanks for having confirmed the issue, I am scheduling to report it to @etermax and @triviacrack support e-mail address, later in the morning.
I feel Trivia Crack's accessibility code is very vulnerable: when they fix an issue, it's very easy to introduce another; I know they have changed the people who work on accessibility, so it may be an error of an unexperienced coder, this is what I feel, this does not sound as a menu change, as the menu is the same; I can only suppose, for now, but it really sounds like some stupid mistake such as a quotation mark missing on the code!
I'll keep you updated, as usual.
Just for your information, I am not involved in trivia crack's development or pre-release testing any way; I am just a user who believes in this game very much and who wants it to improve accessibility better and better, and so I am Always getting in touch with them to give them step by step procedures to reproduce issues.
Please do the same, by writing to support at etermax dot com and together with support at triviacrack dot com

The proper way to write bugs down, is to report the summary of the problem on the subject, such as: Trivia Crack 2.16 serious bug: accessibility, VoiceOver: bottom menu no longer readable
And then, on the body, describing the issue, and maybe a Step-by-Step procedure to reproduce it.
Such as:
1. activate VoiceOver
2. open TriviaCrack app
3. swipe right, to navigate all game's controls, or:
3A: put the finger on the bottom of the screen, where the menu elements are: home, chats, friends, charts, menu ...
Expected result: VoiceOver should read menu elements as buttons
Actual results: VoiceOver does not read anything, it behaves as it finds a blank line

Submitted by DPinWI on Thursday, June 30, 2016

Thank you for all your efforts on behalf of those of us addicted to Trivia Crack. I will send an email to the support people.

You are correct in that it seems that the developers take two steps forward, and then one step back. The good thing is that while it's slow, forward progress is maintained.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Thursday, June 30, 2016

Hello, I just submitted the report to @etermax people.
Meanwhile, an update 2.16.1 was released, but unfortunately the issue persists; so, after having updated the app, I confirmed my report.
For now, the "look at the FAQ" automated response come, this is an autoresponder; usually they answer me soon, telling "thanks for reporting the issue", we'll take it into consideration,, or they even don't answer. But we all have proof they consider us. Slowly, but they do.
It is about 3 years I am playing this game, I have seen many progressions and regressions, but I feel like suggesting all of you to trust them, to be patient, not being discouraged because of issues, but rather keeping contacting them.
If my feelings are correct, that is, some new unexperienced coders coming in, giving them feedbacks, allow them to improve their experience in developing this game.
A game is not matter of life or Death, so, we can be patient and talk to them.
My job is to test hardwares and softwares from all over the world, so, I have Always had to face this kind of situations, devs making 2 steps forth and one back. Being constant with devs, and patient, is the best weapon we have to fight this trend.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Monday, July 4, 2016

updated tc 2.16.2 on 3rd July 2016 and menu problem persists.
As I sent report on 30th June 2016, and due to Apple app store approval process, I suppose they had already submitted 2.16.2 update in that day, so they had no time to fix.
Let's be patient and wait.

Submitted by Paraskevi Dragogia on Sunday, July 10, 2016

I have noticed that some questions of this game are not accessable, because we have to look at a picture in order to recognise a place or person. Of course, Voice Over can not see the pictures. I keep losing games for this reason. Does anyone know if there is an option for turning questions with pictures off?

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Monday, July 11, 2016

Hello, I answer you about picture questions.
I'd suggest you to use power ups, especially Skip question, when you get one of them.
Power ups cost coins, it's true, but you can use cards, to get coins; do you know what I'm talking about, saying cards?

Thanks. I will use pouer ups. And yes, I already know about cards and, thanks to the tutorial that you have posted on how to use card machines, I managed to add some cards in my collection.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Hello, I am currently very busy with my job and I have less time to stay on line in forums and social networks.
But I am still following Trivia Crack's status, and unfortunately I have to say the dock with chat, rankings, menu, home and friends, is still invisible to VoiceOver, 3 versions have been released but Always with the same issue; I trust them, so I'll warn them again to give them a reminder.
For the matter of picture questions, yes, using cards + power ups is the best way, I have the Whole collection and I'm happy with it, now I am collecting just gems, with cards, as I am expecting some surprises in August.
I'm not sure they are coming, I have heard anything about it, but I can imagine it, if they want to keep the game alive, they can't let cards machines only with some limited collections in some year's anniversaries.

Submitted by Blinken223 on Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Hello,

I thought I would let everyone know that with the recent update from yesterday, the bottom tabs are once again visible by VoiceOver. It only took them a few updates but at least they fixed it.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Yes, I'll confirm it to all: the bottom dock of trivia crack, where cats, friends, ranking, menu, and home are located, is again detected by VoiceOver correctly.
Now I'm going to update the cards list with the latest cards machine coming from the olympic games.

Submitted by Elena Brescacin on Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Hello,
just to inform you that Trivia Crack has added a new functionality which allows to Exchange duplicated cards, with gems.
Pressing the "get new cards" button, brings to the usual window, but at the bottom you find an extra button called "trade" ... or Exchange, don't know the exact translation in english.
You press it and another extra-window opens; it's not very clear to understand, but at the end of the window, near the home button, you find an extra-button called "trade", or "Exchange", again, and 5 duplicated cards will be taken away from your album, and you'll get a gem in return.
You don't know which duplicated cards sold, but what's sure, is that you can make 3 trades every 4 hours.
At the beginning of the window you have a couple of numbers, indicating 99+ when you have more than 100 duplicated cards.
You will trade 15 cards every 4 hours; what is sure, is that you will not lose single cards from the collection, you just Exchange the ones which are duplicated.
The annoying thing, is you for example get 3 duplicated cards from a distributor which costs 5 gems, spending 15 gems for nothing, and trading the duplicated cards in the kiosk, you will get just 3 gems in return.

Submitted by Bellsfurmama on Friday, June 22, 2018

Hi. Just wanted to let everyone know I have noticed improvement in accessability since the last Trivia Crack update. It is now easier to start quizzes, missions, etc. Also, if you enter the Question Factory and find that the send button is not showing up, just close the app and open it again. It is likely to appear the second time around. So you probably should check that before submitting your questions. Then, if it is working, submit away! IT works every time until you close the app again.
