Looks like the sale has ended. Maybe they will run it again. if it
don't work well with jaws then not worth the $29.xx.

As I mentioned, I’m open to being persuaded. How did you figure out what all
the unlabeled radio buttons and buttons are in the desktop app? It seems
like the menus keep popping up getting in the way of tabbing through etc.

I use Paprika3. It runs on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac. They recently had
a 40% off sale, but, I think it only lasted till the end of November.

I love this app! It is very accessible, and has lots of features. One can
easily share from any web page that contains a recipe, and Paprika3 will
automatically copy the directions, ingredients, cooking time, etc. It is
also easy to add your own recipes by simply typing them into the designated
fields. One can categorize, and set up new and multiple categories. It is
also easy to email recipes from the app.

HTH,

Hello list,
Was wondering if anyone was using or knows of a service that is iOS and
Windows cross platform compatible for recipe keeping?
I know on iOS there is Paprika <https://www.paprikaapp.com/> which I paid
for a while back and all in all, it still seem to be the most comprehensive
and accessible app on the iPhone, but playing a bit with their Windows
desktop app and Jaws which is my main screen reader, accessibility seems a
little rough. It’s currently on sale from $30 to $15 for the holidays.
Their “trial” version is free for as long as you want to use it it looks
like and the paid one simply unlocks features like unlimited cloud syncing,
etc.
I know I can write the Paprika folks about some of the accessibility stuff
and considering how accessible the iOS app is, maybe they’d be open to
implementing some fixes, but that aside, I’d like to be able to use
something now.
So… is anyone using an alternative service that has an accessible iOS app
and can be used on Windows? Doesn’t even need to be a standalone desktop app
like what Paprika offers. Even a simple web interface would do. Mainly
looking for something that can offer synchronicity across devices. I’m also
aware of a slap together method of having a folder with just recipes in a
cloud based service with text files, but am looking for something more
feature rich like what Paprika has. And on the other hand, if someone’s in
fact using the Windows desktop app and doesn’t find it to be all that
difficult to use, I’m open to being persuaded. Just don’t feel like dropping
$15 or $30 right away on something that may or may not work for me.
Thanks,
Cristóbal
