Accessibility Comments

While some buttons could be better labeled, most are and those that aren't can easily be figured out. Also, video controls appear and disappear when tapping a video sometimes befroe VoiceOver is able to read them all. The interface is a little sloppily arranged for VoiceOver users doing a swipe-through. Overall, though, all these issues are minor and the app is quite accessible and generally easy to use.

VoiceOver Performance

On the NASA website, you have access to more than one NASA TV stream (the Main channel, the Education channel and the Media channel) while it appears that, on the app, you only have access to one stream.

I am not sure, however, whether this is because there is, indeed, only one stream available on the app or whether there are other streams, but I just don't know how to get to them.

Are there other streams? And, if so, is there an accessible way to get to them? If so, how does one do this? If not, are there any work-arounds for this?
