APPLE HONOURS ALGORIDDIM FOR OUTSTANDING DESIGN AND INNOVATION, FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED

Algoriddim wins the 2016 Apple Design Award for the world’s best selling DJ app with over 20 million downloads. After receiving the award in 2011 for djay for iPad, Algoriddim is the first developer to receive the coveted . award twice for the same product line. According to Apple, djay Pro was selected for the second time as an Apple Design Award winner because it sets new benchmarks for performance, features, use of Apple technology, multi-device support, and most importantly for being accessible to the visually impaired.


Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim said, “We are incredibly honoured to receive the Apple Design Award for the second time. We founded Algoriddim 10 years ago with the vision to make DJing accessible to anyone. By now making our app fully accessible for the visually impaired, we have expanded our mission to open the world of DJing to blind users and take away their barriers to musical creativity. We hope to inspire more developers to make their software accessible, with relatively little effort you can make a big difference to people’s lives.”


With VoiceOver enabled, triple-clicking the Home button allows users to tap any button or slider in djay Pro to hear a description of what it does, its state, and how to operate it. For example, tapping the tempo slider will tell by what percentage a song’s tempo has been changed, the BPM display will read out its number of beats per minute, and djay Pro will even tell users the key of a song as in “B flat minor”. This process allows visually impaired users to both navigate and explore the user interface while ensuring they are always hitting the intended button.


The basic process of DJing is to seamlessly mix the playing track into the next track. And to do this successfully, you need to be able to pre-listen or cue the next track in your headphones to make sure it’s beat-matched and sounding great for the dance floor. djay Pro’s seamless support for multi-channel audio interfaces not only make this possible, but with VoiceOver enabled users can even hear a description of everything happening on their screen through their headphones independent of the mix that is playing through the main speakers. This revolutionizes the workflow for impaired users and opens to them the door to live creativity like never before.
