Accessibility Comments: 

This app is not accessible to VoiceOver users.

Most of the buttons have rather cryptic labels, but a more fundamental problem is that VoiceOver does not recognize the icons that represent PDF files. So, it is impossible to browse or open files with VoiceOver.

I briefly disabled VoiceOver to open the PDF file that is preloaded with the app. Having turned VoiceOver on again, I was able to access the content of the PDF file, but the process was far from intuitive.

This app has a long way to go before it will be accessible.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most 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.
