5 - The app is completely accessible using a screen reader
Yes, all controls can be accessed
Most, but not all buttons, edit boxes, and controls are labeled
I looked long and hard for a simple checklist app that would allow my wife and me to manage grocery lists quickly and easily. We wanted to be able to just enter the items we needed one by one and then go to the store and check off each item as we put it in the shopping cart. Most apps I found were hard to manage or just were not very accessible when used with a screen reader. Checklist, on the other hand is very simple, easy to use, and items can be added either with the keyboard or with voice recognition. It is possible to have multiple lists, and items can be copied from one list to another, or even to another app, using the system clipboard.. It is also possible to move items up or down on a list, so you can enter items as you think of them and then rearrange them based on the store layout. Notes: Voice input requires the use of an unlabeled button, but it is the only button that is unlabeled, so most people should have little trouble finding it. It appears to the right of the "add" button. Just click it, and then you will hear the voice search click. As soon as it detects that you are done speaking, it will add what it thought you said to the edit box for the list item. Arrow to the edit box, and if you like what's there, arrow back to the "add" button and click it. If it filled the edit box with nonsense or if it wrote something that is different from what you said, you can clear out the edit box to type in the correct item or just try speaking the item again. Whatever you say the second time will replace what you said the first time. The checked state of each item in a list is not currently spoken by either Talkback or Spiel in version 4.11. The best work-around I have found is to select "hide done" from the options menu. This will cause any item you check off to be hidden from the list. If you accidentally check off something on the list and want to go back and uncheck it, go to the options menu and click "show done." Then find the item in the list that you want to uncheck, click it and click "hide done" in the menu again. A bit involved, but it definitely gets the job done. The "hide done" and "show done" menu options always appear first on the menu, so there\'s no need to scroll around the menu looking for them. Simply go into the menu and then click immediately. This option toggles based on its current state. Update: Version 5.0b3, which I just downloaded as an update from Google Play, fixes the above issue for Spiel users. Though unchecked items are not spoken as unchecked, Spiel now speaks "checked" after each checked item, so the workaround above is no longer necessary if you use Spiel. It does still need to be done for Talkback though, unfortunately. I was more concerned with checked than unchecked anyway, so in light of the fact that it is now working as expected for one of the free and open source screen reader options, I feel that I can say with a fair amount of confidence that this app is now completely accessible and worthy of a 5 star accessibility rating. On my phone, voice recognition doesn't work with standard stereo headphones. If you are trying to add an item using voice input, you have standard headphones connected to your phone, and the voice input doesn't work, try unplugging the headphones before speaking. Just a heads-up, as this has happened to me several times. This is not specific to Checklist; it affects many voice recognition and recording apps.
