What's New

Version 4.5

This release of TED for iOS is focused on accessibility and improving our universal link support. After the last few releases, we are excited to have achieved near 100% VoiceOver support in our app. If you're a VoiceOver or Switch Control user, please get in touch and let us know how we can continue to improve our support for you!

Here's what's changed since our last release:

- The number of search results found will be announced via VoiceOver as you type in the search field.
- When the "Reduce Transparency" accessibility setting is enabled, the contrast between a talk's poster image and any text appearing atop it will be increased.
- The TED logo is now an accessibility element when used in a navigation bar.
- We improved the format of our accessibility labels for the duration of a talk or playlist.
- The structure of accessibility elements on the playlist screen has been improved.
- The accessibility label for a featured talk's play button has been improved to provide more detail and additional context.
- In the video player, the quick seek buttons now have accessibility labels that indicate the seek duration.
- Our audio player is now accessible using VoiceOver and Switch Control.
- Direct manipulation of the video player's playhead position slider is now possible when using VoiceOver.
- Video playback controls will no longer auto-hide after a delay when using VoiceOver or Switch Control. Controls will hide when playback is resumed.
- An accessibility label has been provided for the playlist "Play all" button.
- There was a crash that could occur while rotating an iPad, so we fixed that.
- We fixed a few visual issues in our audio player.
- We improved our universal link support so that any content we can't load in-app will push you to a Safari view.

If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com.

ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!

Editors' Notes

Gain new perspectives from inspiring talks. 

Sync is slow but working

Intissar

After thinking to have lost 100 talks out of the 150 I had in my list. I was just gutted.
At the end, the list is limited to 100 !
So I lost 50 of my carefully selected Talks.
I know that is should have liked them but they were from previous versions where there was no limit...
Please increase the list !!!

Developer Response

We've now fixed this issue, so if you go back into the app, you should see all 150 talks. Worst case, if you log out and back in, they should be retrieved. Thanks again for pointing this out.

App keeps losing talks saved in my favourites list

Helena Troy

I really love TED Talks and find them inspiring and fascinating.

I love the app quite a bit less...... for some reason, the app keeps ‘losing’ favourited talks from my favourites list. Even when I highlight them and come back to them minutes later the highlight has been lost. It’s driving me ever so slightly mad. Pleeeaaaassseee can you fix this? Is there a limit to the number of talks I can favourite?
