Accessibility Comments

the screen can be navigated by VoiceOver, however none of the buttons have labels though most do respond to double taps with VoiceOver, one displays a faq, another displays a report showing what trackers have been blocked, and there is another which installs some kind of vpn profile which I assume is to do with how trackers are blocked once your connected to there vpn. some of the buttons don't seem to respond to taps.
