Accessibility Comments: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements, and all buttons appear to be labelled.

Using a barcode scanner is always likely to be an issue for a blind user, but the one in this app appeared to be better than some, as it automatically recognizes and captures barcodes.

I did find the interface a little hard to follow in places. There is a lot going on, and the app could certainly benefit from having hints added to some buttons.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

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