Ratings and Reviews
WFSB with voiceover
I have been using the WFSB be app with my iPhone and voice over for about two months. I am totally blind and would like to see some improvements in the app. For example, I would like to see a verbal description of weather. Obviously there is no way I can use the weather radar but, I do not see much description of weather Doppler. I know I am only one person but there were many blind people who watch you. There are other things that could use some improvement to. There are many things that don't work properly with voiceover. I'm not trying to complain, I'm just making you aware of things that need to happen. After reading some of the reviews, I also would like to add that I to have a problem accessing live feeds. Sometimes they come up very nicely others they don't. I have a very good Internet connection here and I always use Wi-Fi. For the most part, I do like the app.
Would like to see the format changed. Many times can I get into a video. Scrolling takes too long. I have many times try to search only to receive a cannot be found notice. Irritating. I follow a out-of-state station called WMUR and they have a wonderful format and many different sections which offer different types of subjects. Might want to check that out. It’s very appealing. Like to add that there are too many ads and too many notifications about the same thing just written a different way. Multiple weather alerts over the same thing repeatedly. Annoying and totally unnecessary. Many of those can be cut out
Generally good - Could be better
I appreciate the updates. I would prefer it if the important details of the story could be presented in the first line, or in the piece I can see when I open the app, rather than a tease, so that I wouldn't have to waste time clicking through to every story. It's a newsroom - I imagine you have talented headline writers and people who know how to write a lead, and I'm willing to listen to the whole story when I sit down to watch the news. But when I'm busy, and using the app to just get a quick overview, I don't want to keep clicking. Otherwise, I like your app very much.
