Accessibility Comments: 

VoiceOver appears to find everything that is on the screen, but this doesn't help if you are left dazed by an interface that is very difficult to understand with no visual cues and the very many buttons that are either unlabelled or have very cryptic labels.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.
