Assistive Technologies & Grid Layout

Study Snacks has an excellent support for assistive technologies like VoiceOver, Voice Control and Switch Control. When using VoiceOver or Switch Control, the Study view automatically use a special grid layout. The grid layout will arrange the subwords on a static grid, instead of being physics based. Therefore, solving a term doesn't influence the position of the other subwords and thus, make them easier to find again for VoiceOver users. The grid layout can also be turned on automatically to reduce cognitive load for anyone.

Pronunciation is key when learning a new language. So when learning vocabulary, we made sure that VoiceOver would read out English words in English, Spanish words in Spanish, and so on. This is also true when VoiceOver speaks out the correct solution after solving a term on the study view.
