Accessibility Comments

For the most part this appears to be very accessible. However, there are a few minor issues. Firstly, when browsing one of your cloud services there is a button in the top left corner labeled with the name of the service. When you double-tap on that button, a menu is displayed. There is no cancel option and swiping will have VoiceOver finding not only the options on the menu, but also the elements from the page that you were viewing before loading this menu. This can be rather confusing, especially as you can only make the menu disappear by using one of the menu options … or some of the elements from the previous page, which do seem to still work when this menu is being displayed. As I said, it's a little confusing … just like this description of the problem (smiles). Also a little confusing is the 'More' button on the playback screen which gives access to additional options. Without any visual cues, it can seem like there are multiple instances of the same control, and it's not immediately apparent which one is the one that will actually do something.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.
