Accessibility Comments: 

This iis not an app specifically designed for people with visual impairments. Turn off the grid in the settings menu and the camera's flash must be in the "on" position. This app could use a lot of improvement, but it's the best scan and read app that I've tried.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The app is a bit on the expensive side. You'll need a lot of patience and remember that the app is far from perfect. Also, the page must be oriented correctly for the app to work.
