Accessibility Comments

The app is almost completely accessible and it works well with VoiceOver for registering, logging in, setup and cleaning.

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.

Other Comments

Important indicators, such as the iRobot's battery status, are not available through Alexa, so the app is critical in some situations.
