Hi Simon,

Ah yes, the old bypass trick.  I'd forgotten that.

All the best

you double tap and hold on the ticket type, until you get the sound, then when 
you double tap it, you should go to payment.

Hey Steve,
Do you have a problem when finally wanting to buy the ticket? I have the 
ticket type and price, and then a button for ticket restrictions. When I 
double tap the ticket type I want it always sends me to the ticket 
restrictions page whilst if my sighted wife taps once in exactly the same 
place with voice over off she jumps to the payment page…I’m so close.
As for the 16-25 railcard savings applied message, she can’t see that 
anywhere and actually the ticket price is without any discount. Aargh!
Could my iPhone 5 be finally meeting its match?

Thanks for taking the time,
Karl

Hi Karl,

I think if you tap the 16-25 Rail Card, you should get a dropdown, then 
you can choose Disabled Railcard.  It should then stay there.

All the best

Steve

Hi all,
I’ve just downloaded the tramline app and it is certainly easier to 
navigate. Just two questions though..
I seem to have a permanent note of a 16-25 railcard savings applied to my 
search even though I haven’t selected a railcard, and… When selecting my 
return journey, how do I then go on to buy that ticket?

Just started but it looks like it may be for me, thanks Steve for 
mentioning it.

Hi Simon,

I must admit, I like the self-printed tickets at the station.

I know I have to get assistance, but it's better than paying five quid 
postage.

All the best

Steve

if you really want to use a website, I would recommend the virgin 
eastcoast site, as they actually have a link for a more screenreader 
friendly interface.
I would more recommend using one of the iPhone apps, if you have an 
iPhone, the trainline being the one I tend to use, especially with some 
of it's new features, such as being able to enter a postcode, of say a 
final destination, and it will come up with the nearest stations, and 
also tell you how far they are from the postcode you entered. the only 
thing which it doesn't offer, is an option to have tickets posted to you, 
but none of the other apps seem to offer this option either, for some 
strange reason. this would be the one advantage of using something like 
the virgin eastcoast site.

hope this helps.

Simon

Hi all,
I’m struggling to find a good useable site for buying rail tickets.
I’m using a Mac and Safari.

Regards to all.
