Subject: Revived Concern About Accessibility of TOI and NDTV on iOS

Dear friends,
Since this subject was last raised, I feel that TOI largely still remains inaccessible mostly in terms of navigation and article-reading, and that NDTV may have returned to it's original inaccessible state.
I feel that it is important to prioritize on these issues otherwise we will not be able to enjoy valuable news sources which our sited friends out there can easily access, gaining awareness about the latest what's ons and thus making them even more conscious citizens.
Would like to hear your valuable opinions and ideas and further extend this discussion.
Best regards,
