    Roon Test

    This won't mean anything to you I'm sure but it's a slow news day, LOL

    I have a friend who uses Roon and I love the radio feature, really have no interest in using it but it could have maybe been an option if Conductor 4 isn't made accessible.

    I'm not sure why we never thought to do this before. We brought up Roon on his iPhone and turned on Voice Over and discovered that Roon is 100% not accessible. Voice Over could read nothing on Roon. Not sure what format they use but I've never run across an app that bad. Most apps work with Voice Over, some can be weird by not reading all buttons or something but Roon, nothing.

    Footnote: Voice Over is an accessibility feature inside settings of Apple products which allows blind folks to read the screen with their finger, VO reads the text.

    I found the official answer for you: try Roon ARC instead of Roon Remote.

    Roon remote is for use on the network with the server. You can choose any output device discovered by Roon.

    Roon ARC is to play music from your library, outside of your home network. Music plays from the remote device (phone etc)

    Not sure of voice control of Roon though. Worth looking in their forum, certainly someone has explored this before.
