Accessibility Comments

the interface is usable but the content cannot be read using voiceover.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments

This is an awesom app but has a glaring shortcoming in that the only access to the content of the media is through their text to speech delivery method.
