Quote from article:
A website has broken the wall of silence surrounding version 6 of Apple’s mobile operating system iOS - and alleged blind people will struggle to use the App Store software in the new build.
iOS 6 rolls out tomorrow for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches - but it has been in the hands of selected developers since July, allowing them to adapt their apps ready for the big launch.
Now a writer for AppleVis.com, which covers software for visually impaired users, has reported problems with the upcoming iOS 6 release.
According to AppleVis, tweaks designed to make the new App Store more visually appealing have left it incompatible with VoiceOver - the speech-driven user interface with which punters control their gadgets. The website alleged that problem occurs with VoiceOver on the iPhone, but could not verify that there was a similar issue with the iPad.
The post claims a compatibility problem with VoiceOver means that search in the App Store will not work, pages shown will not match what is being read out, and that visually impaired users will be more or less cut off from using the service.
