  1. I realize that, for those of us with non-retina monitors and degraded visual acuity, the Apple system fonts are going to pose a consistent problem. One of the ways to help with this is to use the zoom function, but as a writer and editor I often shift between notes, requiring not only a click on the new note, but multiple clicks on the zoom combo to make it visible, doing what needs to be done and then returning to the original note which now needs to be zoomed again. If this were just an occasional operation, it wouldn't be so irritating, but continuously having to bracket a simple task with 3 zoom clicks on either side gets tedious. It would be very nice if there were a way to set a global zoom level that would not involve changing the type size. What I have in mind is an item in preferences that could be set for the display without affecting the print output.
  2. The font size is way too small for persons with eye issues, the elderly, etc. support for the Accessibility features would be very helpful.
  3. Sorry the title isn't incredibly descriptive. I'll do my best. Use case: I use Evernote to take notes at long meetings sometimes. During these, I find myself looking at the bottom of the screen the entire time. This can be a little stressful, especially on a small height, widescreen laptop. It does happen on a desktop as well, but less quickly. I won't always know if I have to change the chronological order of a notion (so i can read it better), if I have to re-order something as a bullet list... and so on. I have to make edits to the style of what I'm writing so that it will retain (or gain...) legibility once I'm done. In order to be able to do this on the fly, I need some whitespace ahead of me. This results in a UX where I have to hit Enter several times to get some whitespace, then move my cursor back to where I was. Then I can fill it with new data, but then I'm constantly playing catch up with the "fake" whitespace I've inserted to give me some wiggle room. In these moments, it feels like Evernote gets in my way. Naturally I stay on the platform because of the robust tagging and organizational capacity. In addition, there is some annoyance with having my eye fixed at the bottom of the window. It'd be a boon to ease of use and accessibility to have the full sized window, but keep the focus in the center. In the use case where you're fixed on the bottom 6% of the window exclusively, it does induce some strain. So my suggestion is to add a mode where we can toggle the cursor position on the Y-axis. As in, if the Y-axis is 100% of window size, I can lock the Y position of the cursor at 50%. I can do this in writing apps like IaWrite, Scrivener.. etc. It's helpful to have a similar feature in note-taking apps, especially if the use case calls for agility in moving the content on the fly as I mention. Thanks for listening!! PS I've attached really basic PNGs to show what I'm talking about in case it's not immediately apparent.
  4. Request: Give us an option to improve readability without altering the original article. Problem: Reading clipped articles is difficult on mobile when:the original font size is too smallan ornate font is used that doesn't render well at low sizes and requires more weight for legibilitya low-contrast color scheme was used, which requires more weight for legibilityAttempted workarounds are insufficientAltering the iOS font scale has no effect on the article bodyPinch-zooming does not reflow the article, requiring constant left-right swipingIncreasing font sizes of the content damages the original content, requires desktop use, and does not address needs on various device sizes and dot pitches (eg., iPad Mini vs iPad Mini retina vs iPad Air) Some possible solutions: A "Reader" mode that strips size, font and color formatting. It might use the iOS font scale or an app-configured font scaleAn option that scales only the presentation of either the text or the full article, then reflows the layoutA minimum font size option that forces small fonts to render at a larger size. The minim size might be either an explicit selection or derived from the iOS font scale
  5. Does anyone have any knowledge as to how to use Evernote with either JAWSfor windows or voiceover for mackintosh? I can use it with my iPhone, however I am having trouble even logging in on either my Windows computer or my Apple computer just hoping that the excess ability is available on my computer side of things.thank you for any help you can give.
  6. I am a blind EN user. I just purchased a ScanSnap ix 500. I rely on VoiceOver on iOS and a screenreader on my PC to read the documents to me. Can someone tell me how to set the ScanSnap to embed the OCR data to the pdf before it goes into Evernote? If it is not added before it goes into EN, my devices will not read it aloud. Thanks.
  7. Hello, First of all, let me start off by saying that I am a totally blind computer user. I recently signed up for evernote and have been using a combo of the web beta and the windows desktop app. Both are resonably accessible with my prefered screen reader, Window-eyes by gwmicro. A screen reader is software that uses synthasized speech to convey information to a blind/visually impaired individual through the use of keyboard navigation. This information can be manipulated and customized in hundreds of ways to suit the user's preferences. However, I just now read the announcement about testing the new beta and was not expecting to be told NOT to use the beta if we were using assistive tech software. I have to dmit, I'm disappointed in this request. I feel that, should the Evernote creators care about accessibility at all, they should invite screen reader and other AT users to test their product for accessibility issues. Wouldn't it be better to address them now in a beta stage and not have to deal with them later? Don't I have as much right to test the web beta as any other user and provide feedback? It's a little like saying, "you can test our new chocolate candy, but not if you like milk chocolate." Isn't that still chocolate? It would seem to me that, by not wanting AT users to participate in the beta test, Evernote is limiting their potential market of users of their products. Presently, I can't write notes in the desktop app, I can't delete them in the web app. The desktop app has hotkeys, the web app doesn't, and I use full keyboard navigation for my entire computing experience. it's faster to drag and drop notes into notebooks in the web app, there are more shortcuts for moving notes in the desktop app though. What the Evernote devs might not know is that Window-eyes is currently in a beta testing cycle of its own. Part of this testing is for an advanced and entirely new version of Browse Mode. This is the interface mode that the software uses to communicate with web page elements. By rewriting the code for this feature from the ground up, GWMicro has made it possible for Window-Eyes users to FINALLY use a web version of the Evernote client; both the old version and new beta version are now somewhat accessible. Also, they have updated the use of Window-Eyes so that it can read the screens on the desktop app; it was unable to do this before due to a conflict in the UI of the native app. I still can't read the document window to write notes in the desktop app though. So, keeping this in mind, I would like to enquire as to the decision to not have AT users involved in a beta testing cycle of a product that is by far the most used notetaking software out there. Also, I would like to request that AT users be given the freedom to test and submit accessibility issues with the beta as well as suggestions on how to make it easier to navigate. By doing this, the devs would be weeding out issues that they might have to deal with in future. By not doing this, the devs are showing a sad lack of ambition to make their products accessible in a world where accessibility is becoming more of a recognized issue in the web development community. One need only look at mlb.com and amazon.com at the tops of their respective pages to notice this. I would appreciate any feedback on this issue and encourage discussion. I will freely admit that these are my opinions and, as such, can be taken with however many grains of virtual salt you desire. That said, I thank you for reading this and hope you will consider my concerns as valid. If you would like any further explanation and/or a demo of how I navigate the web and your evernote apps in particular, please don't hesitate to ask. thank you, Dave
  8. very surprised the Windows app seems to have NO function to reverse colours or change contrast, size of fonts, etc. I have low vision, I know many tens of thousands of us do, but this ver of a major app seems WAY behind the times. any comments? plans to upgrade? I can't say I will adopt this platform in my business with this limitation. haven't tried Mac version yet, but hesitate to bother since the Windows experience is, uh, sub-par (i.e. I cannot access information in Evernote). Web app is okay, though I'd prefer the standalone for its purported functionality.
  9. I am legally blind - paperless by need - and use a screen reader called JAWS. I can not get JAWS to read anything in the evernote desktop application for windows. I am a lawyer and run my own consulting practice, but will not recommend any product that I can't use with JAWS. I love evernote, so any ideas from the community would be greatly appreciated. I am running - JAWS 13, Windows 7 on a 64 bit with an I7 processor, quad core and 16G ram. cheers, Paperless....
  10. Hi there, I am using a Mac as it has superior accessibility features (I have a visual impairment) However, I am shocked to find out that Evernote does not appear to have a simple zoom function? Or am I missing something? Is it really impossible to zoom into notes? If this is the case, could you please add a 2x, 4x, 8x, 10x, ...... zoom function? If I am missing something, please point me towards where I can find the zoom option. Thanks & cheers.
  11. Hello all, I heard speaking evernote since months and months but truely began to take a look at it few months ago. I downloaded and installed the windows client recently. Before going further I would like to precise I'm blind working with a screen reader (Jaws or Window-eyes) on windows XP/vista. When I first tried the windows evernote client few weeks ago I found it quite accessible (even if it was not far from perfect it was reasonably accessible). The problem is that I just downloaded the latest beta of the software and then I was totally disapointed to see a total lack of accessibility there... I would like to know if a bit of work towards this problem is planned before the release or not ... And in the coming months I probably switch from windows to mac. Could you tell me if the mac client has been developped with Universal Accessibility in mind following Apple accessibility guideline ? and if not is it planned for a future version ? I ask all this question because I'm currently a free evernote user but plan nextly to adopt the premium option ... and if you would plan to focus on accessibility for your products it would be very nice for me and all blinds whom I recommanded your solution...
  12. Since the latest update of Voice Dream Reader, a text to speech app for iPhone/iPad/iPod, I am using Evernote to pull notes and open in this reader. But I am having trouble easily searching through Evernote notebooks to select the note to be read aloud. Are there any EN users who are also using this reader? This is important for use as assistive technology for those who have a print disability. Hearing a note read aloud is often more effective for learning, such as for a person with dyslexia. I want to edit notes in EN and then copy/paste or just pull up the note into Voice Dream Reader. FYI: Dropbox and Instapaper and Pocket were the first big connections made through Voice Dream Reader but now adding Evernote will be a big boost to use of TTS with a note. Tips are welcome!
