Original Comments: This app is not very accessible. Only the buttons at the top of the screen are labelled in any way.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.


Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

The current version is more accessible now, but I tend to use other apps instead.
