Original Poster Comments:
When you first start the app you get a tutorial come up, this isn't navigable with flicking, instead you have to touch around the screen to look for a
button labelled as I got it. Once you tap this button the main part of the app comes up and it is accessible with flicking, everything is clearly labelled,
though I haven't successfully scanned any documents with this, but then I wasn't seriously trying. It goes without saying this app offers no guidance with
lining up with your document, and in fact the screen which says looking for document says to line it up in the screen. So I have no idea if this app will
actually OCR text or if it just takes a picture and saves it. I presume there must be some sort of view finder on the screen that sighted users must frame
the document in or something. The app does offer a manual method for taking pictures as well as the automatic one. I have only spent about 5 minutes with
this app. I selected that is is fully accessible and easy to navigate and use because although the tutorial takes a few seconds to escape its quite easy
and after that everything is fine and you don't see the tutorial again.

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.

For the most part on the surface it appears to be really accessible. Unfortunetly, after I do a scan is when things goes down hill. At this point is where we can see that we have quite a few unlabeled buttons.
