Accessibility Comments: 

Initially, the welcome screen appears to be inaccessible, but there is a way to get around this, see below in the comments. Other than that, every part of this app seems to be VoiceOver-friendly. I was able to get a listing of all the different shows, and was able to watch one successfully...the developers really did a good job on this one.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


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

Other Comments: 

Not difficult at all to use! If you've been looking for a way to catch up on tv shows on ABC this one is a real winner. Note there are still some commercials, but not as many as you might see if you watched the show as it airs live.
