Emergency Campaign Needed! Watching the Olympics with the NBC Live Extra App
By Karl, 13 July, 2012
iOS and iPadOS
Yesterday, I downloaded the NBC Live Extra App. This is the app through which NBC will be sttreaming the entire 2012 London Olympics. From what I can tell, this will be the only app with which people can watch live coverage on their i-devices. There is one critical problem with this app, it is completely inaccessible with VoiceOver. The only thing that shows up is a link to an ad of some kind. Through some random tapping, I managed to get a highlights video playing, and even the player was inaccessible. I will shortly be contacting the company about the inaccessibility of the app, and I would strongly encourage anyone who lives in the US and cares about watching the Olympics on their i-device to do the same.
