Great news coverage, but ...

VoiceOver user.

I’ve always enjoyed the news coverage on WBRC, and have usually had good success using the iOS app. However, recent versions have not been as VoiceOver friendly. For one thing, it isn’t always easy to tell exactly where in the app you are. My biggest frustration is this: even though we are supposed to be able to stream live video (such as a currently streaming newscast), I haven’t succeeded in getting it to play. I can get archived video (such as Absolutely Alabama) to play, but am not even finding any button or link for bringing up the current newscast. I wish there were a Help section for this app. There used to be an alternate app, called WBRC Live +, which would play the stream as soon as the app opened- - unless the station wasn’t streaming a newscast. However, that app no longer works, and in fact is no longer available. I tried to address these concerns to App Support, but couldn’t find an email address or phone number for sending them. If anyone has a solution, please write it in a review.
