Mobile radio app Bloom.fm has launched high quality audio settings which aim to enhance the online and offline listening experience.
Enhanced 3G Streaming increases the audio quality of streamed tracks from 128 kbps to 160 kbps; while Super High Quality Audio improves the quality of borrowed tracks, from 160kbps to 320Kbps.
The service has also launched VoiceOver support, which annotates all the elements on a page with spoken descriptions. With vision-impaired users in mind, a user navigates through the elements with a set of standard gestures, defined by the software.
Discussing the new functions, Oleg Fomenko, CEO of Bloom.fm said, “We created Bloom.fm to offer the best mobile music experience possible and we’re constantly looking for ways to make our service even better. We’re delighted that Bloom’s unique interface is now completely accessible to our vision-impaired users.
“We want to give music fans a premium music experience, that looks and sounds fantastic, from just £1 a month. Our users are passionate about music, so we’ve been working hard to add high-quality audio options for streaming and offline listening.”
