Device(s) App Was Tested On:

Accessibility Comments: 

The iOS app is fully accessible, however the Windows desktop client is not, because it is written in Java, and it is done in such a way that even the Java Accessbridge cannot interact with it. In short, Java Accessbridge allows assistive technologies to interact with java applications, both desktop and the web. As a workaround to the desktop client, you can use the web client at https://myphonedesktop.com.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

When you start the app, you must touch the create account button then double tap to activate it and start creating your account. This button, as well as the forgot password button, is not accessible using the swipe gestures.
