Accessibility Comments: 

This app now allows you to access all of its features with VoiceOver. Browsing articles, navigating to different sections, and reading content is accessible. However, there is something that indicates that it is "loading" and I'm not sure if that's an iAd or if it's actually part of the article I'm trying to read. Certainly, Fox News has made this app useable, and this is good to see.

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.
