@debacle @Jookia Ⓥ @pep @Robert Kingett Just a little correction. #Conversations on #Android is the most accessible chat app I've used. No matter which screen reader I'm using daily and I like it verry much. #Dino on #Linux is partially accessible. The issue is incoming chat can't be navigated through with arrow keys similar to other #GTK read only text entries.

Today's #AndroidAppRain in my repo brings you 2 new apps (next to 4 updated apps):

* Transportr (on request by the devs as there are currently problems with the F-Droid build due to non-free dependencies)
* Smart Edge: music status under the pinhole camera

I guess, your F-Droid repository offers apps for this... providing this for older #Android versions.

What do you think about #Android #Privacy Indicator? It's a little dot showing up in your status bar when an app accesses your microphone, camera, location or other sensitive data. (became first available on Android 12)

@fdroidorg is dedicated to enforcing #FreeSoftware for #Android apps. There is big money pushing hard to make people slip, Google is one of those. I've been working on free software since 1994, and from what I've seen, this approach is the only way to make progress. If no one enforces it, then everyone just slips into proprietary software.

"The Tutanota apps are Libre software, and we wanted to publish our Android app on F-Droid. We wanted our users to be able to use Tutanota on every ROM and every device, without the control of a third-party like Google. We decided to take on the challenge and to build our own push notification service."

Recently a friend recommended me to try out this awesome looking GPS navigation app specifically designed for visualy disabled users.

Is it me or is #Google slowly removing accessibility support from #android #aosp apps?
I'm running android 12.1 and included calendar and keyboard are no longer accessible. Keyboard is not a problem for me, as I am using 3rd party braille keyboards either soft braille keyboard or the one included within corvus suite of apps.
However I am unable to find an accessible calendar app.
Etar is partially accessible, only the agenda view is useable with the screen reader.
Simple calendar has accessibility issues.
Have you got some more tips?

I just installed K-9 #mail client for #android. This is the first time ever I've installed a non-Google email client on Android. I've always wanted @thunderbird on Android and since it seems K-9 will become that, I'm going to try to get used to it now. For a very first impression, I like it's simplicity.
