Accessibility Comments: 

The 3 buttons used in this app (magnifier, torch & contrast) provide no feedback via VoiceOver as to their current status. Of course, it’s unlikely that you would be using this app if you relied solely on VoiceOver. However, it would still be useful to have these controls labeled to reflect their current state.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


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