Accessibility Comments: 

AppleVis Editor Note: this app was submitted before Usability Ratings were introduced, so one has been chosen on the basis of the accessibility comments made by the original poster. If you have used this app, please post a comment to let us know if you agree with the Rating.

Original Comments: This app only works with iPhone, and iPod touch 4g, since you need a camera. This app is completely accessible, but it takes a lot of practice to read paper money, and you have to be in an area that offers a lot of light for it to work, same for the color reader.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
