Device(s) App Was Tested On: 

iPod Touch

Accessibility Comments: 

The app is fully accessible as far as I have been able to test. Clicking the Effects, Share, File or Menu buttons adds new options to the upper part of the screen. The same goes for clicking on an effect in the Effects screen. This is not very intuitive to VoiceOver users, but is perfectly accessible. The buttons labeled |> and <| are used to rewind and fast-forward, the button to the left of these starts recording.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

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

Other Comments: 

This app has been designed with the Zoom iQ5 microphone in mind, but it works well with other mics too. The one thing to note is that version 1.0.0.0 has few export options.
