I found the list of this year‘s Apple Design Award winners. Check them out at:
Browsing the selection, I found myself a bit disappointed from an accessibility perspective.
I haven‘t tried all the apps out; but from what I‘ve tested and read so far, it seems that most of them are not VoiceOver accessible.
This particularly disappoints me because in other years, Apple not only chose accessible apps, but also mentioned their accessibility in their „lines of honor“. This time, accessibility is not mentioned a single time.
I do have some hopes for an app named „Flow by Moleskine“, because another app by the same developer was recently given very good marks in the AppleVis IOS Directory. But the app also seems to focus very much on visual elements (lots of different colors and stuff to create notes), and I‘m not sure how well this can be made accessible.
I will definitely try „Eloh“ and „Thumper“, which seem to be rhythm-based.
What does everyone think? Has anyone tested any of the awarded apps yet?
