Tape It Recorder App

Android 15 Talkback Updates

In this episode of Double Tap, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece dive into an array of topics which lead into an insightful discussion on Tape It, a recorder app designed initially for musicians but has found a niche within the blind and partially sighted community.

The creators of Tape It hadn’t initially focused on accessibility, but after receiving feedback from a Canadian user who is blind, they realized the app’s potential for a broader audience. This led them to learn about and implement VoiceOver features, significantly improving the app’s usability for users.

Steven talks to Thomas Walther, co-founder of the app, to chat about how Tape It harnesses the iPhone microphones to deliver high-quality audio recordings. Thomas also shares the journey of discovering the blind community’s interest in the app and the steps taken to make it more accessible.
