Accessibility Comments

This app is very accessible, however the following issues have been identified:

  • When swiping with one finger through the app, VoiceOver may encounter multiple instances of an advertisement for business profiles, with no apparent way to dismiss the ad; further swipes right will skip the social feed. Therefore, you must explore by touch if you want to enter and view the feed, after which swiping left and right with one finger works as expected.
  • In the, "Top people," and, "friends," headings in the pay or request form, swiping right with one finger passed a user results in an empty element. Double-tapping either this empty element or the name of the user immediately to the left of it will add that user as a recipient in the new transaction.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

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