Call+ – not accessible to blind users on Android

What is Call+?

Call+ is an app with in-app purchases but, essentially you can make phone calls to regular phones to a number of countries absolutely free.


There are versions for both iOS and Android.


I downloaded the app from the Android Playstore and installed it on an LG G2 running Android v4.4, KitKat with the Talkback beta installed.


The installation of Call+ took a few seconds on my 3g connection.


Upon opening the app, I was asked to enter my own phone number to
initiate the app.


The list of countries was easy to navigate and I managed to select South
Africa reasonably quick.

It would be nice if I could just type in the first few letters but, hey,
I only have to do this once so, no big deal.


After I have selected South Africa, I entered the rest of my phone
number in the edit field just below.

And a little further down, there was a start button with terms and
conditions just underneath that.


I double tapped on the start button to continue and was asked to confirm
if my number is such and such.


Here I was given two options.  I could edit my number by double tapping
the edit button or the ok button if I was satisfied and yes, my number
was entered correctly so, I decided to proceed.


When I double tapped ok, I was told that an sms was sent to my number.


This sms contained a 6 digit code that I then entered into the provided
edit field.


On this screen, you are also able to request for the system to phone you
instead with a code.  By proceeding, you also acknowledge that you agree
with the terms and conditions.


Upon completing the entry, it just jumped to the next screen without


Everything on this screen was 100% inaccessible.


The app on Android is useless from this point on.

How developers can make such mistakes is beyond me.

It is almost as if they are doing this intentionally.


I contacted the developer so, let’s see what kind of response I’ll be getting from them.
