Accessibility Comments

This appears to be fully accessible. It is a bit weird to use since it has its own speech engine that will run along with your VoiceOver. Contains quite a few useful features that some will want to use. For being FREE it is not a bad little swiss army knife of tools that one can use on a daily basis.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

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

I looked in the AppStore on my iPhone 5 and had to spell out the app name fully in order to find it. There was no blurb on the app, leading me to wonder if the app is still supported, at least in the U.S.

If one just puts in part of the name, the one result seems to be something called Optinav, a GPS app a la BlindSquare, also by Novardis.

Hello,

I could not locate the app in Canada using iTunes or iPhone 5S. Perhaps it is not available in this country.

No the app is not available in Canada but if you have an iTunes account and the United States you can download it but it wouldn't work on my phone.
