Accessibility Comments

This is a very accessible app. The interface is clear and easy to navigate. There is only one button I have found to be unlabelled, and that is the very last one on the screen. This button opens the 'About' page.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


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