Scaling Fonts Automatically in Deezer iOS app (support Dynamic Type)


Userlevel 3
Hello,

I have noticed that you are playing with a new font and i personally like it.
But besides the new font, please, you need to implement dynamic font support for the app.

In some areas of the app the text is to small for those who need larger text for better readability.


I do not want you to make the text bigger for everyone, I would like you to make an option (with dynamic type support) to make bigger and much easier text to read for those who are comfortable using larger text sizes.

Thanks,
Alexandru

Hi there @Alexandru Lucian

Thanks for the very constructive feedback. I've passed it on and voted for it 😉

This option would be very much appreciated, it’s true that the font size sometimes is very small and not so easy to read...

Thanks for the feedback, @MarcoG. I've passed it on 👍🏼

I have been using deezer for a very long time, but currently been thinking of moving to spotify, Only because fonts are too small and thiny on my iphone7. So me in the gym no glasses and can’t see the name of the playlist I am looking for. I have already asked for this long ago but it seems it needs to be asked again.

Oh @Sybele what a bummer! Sorry to hear that!

Our teams have their own accessibility projects ongoing, but we haven't had specific guidelines on them yet. You may be able to increase the font size for the Deezer app via the iOS settings.

Thank you for trying to answer. However, your suggestion applies only to the applications that support the dynamic type which is not the case with Deezer application, which means no matter how big I make the font, in Deezer is still tiny tiny. The original topic that started over a year ago was exactly about asking for this option. But,  I must mention for anyone who has the same problem, it does help in the iPhone setting to change the font to bold if you of course like all your texts to be bold as well, which I don’t.

Thank you for your honest feedback. I'll speak directly to our devs to ask them if there are any plans/updates to add support for Dynamic Type this year @Sybele 

Once more, apologies for the oversight and thank you for your support so far. Once I've heard back, I'll let you know!

In the meantime, have a great week :relaxed:

Thanks Rudi. It would be really great!

One of our developers is really keen on working on this individually, as their own objective in Deezer @Sybele I've also given her some of your details in case we need some testing in the future.

There's nothing set in stone yet, but we agree there's more Deezer needs to do in terms of accessibility and Dynamic Type.

Thank you for your patience and contribution!
