Accessibility Comments: 

This accessibility rating has been updated to reflect the version listed above. They have fixed the unlabeled buttons, and it appears most of the 1 time payment issues have been fixed with 2 exceptions. When filling out the amount with the touch screen, there appears to be no decimal point to seperate dollars from cents. However, when filled out with a bluetooth keyboard or braille display, you can enter the amount correctly. It also is not possible to select a payment to be delivered by, you can only use the earliest available date. Which if you're making a 1 time payment, may or may not be a big deal. All other parts of the 1 time payment feature appear to work as they should. I have contacted Bank of America with this feedback.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

Still a great app, as long as you do not need to make one time BillPay payments via the touch screen.
