Accessibility Comments: 

Fully accessible with Voice Over. All entries, tabs, buttons, and all other elements of the app are accessible with Voice Over. You will need to activate language on the rotor. You will also need to install the Thai voice in the phone settings for language rotor. If you are wanting to get a bit more in depth with Thai, you should also install the Thai keyboard in the phone settings. Most of the time, Voice Over will automatically switch between Thai and English while reading when scripts are up. There are times when you will have to manually switch voices with the language rotor to read certain elements. The website, thai-language.com is fully accessible with Voice Over as well, for Mac anyway. I haven't really visited the site on my iPhone yet.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
