Accessibility Comments: 

Here is the deal. Most of the buttons are not clearly labeled. However, in this case unless you have enough vision to care, the buttons are not an issue. They are not really of any use for blind people. The main use for this particular app is just to have fun with it, and enjoy how it screws up your sentences.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments: 

I won't repeat what I stated in the accessibility comments section. When you open the app, there is a dialog that has a close button. This is just the page that allows you to make in app purchases, none of which are useful to blind people. Click that close button, and Pierre will start listening to you, and repeating everything you say. It's a good idea to turn off VoiceOver speech while using the app. If you don't do this, Pierre records everything VO says. To do this, double tap with 3 fingers to turn speech off. When your finished, do the same to turn speech back on. I think it stores around 5 or 10 minutes of clips, before recycling the speech buffer. Trust me, this app is real fun. It is a time wasting app, and it will make you laugh. It's good stuff!
