Accessibility Comments: 

Definitely useable, but there are certain things that are frustrating about it. Sometimes it scrolls oddly or seems to get stuck, certain pages like profiles will have voiceover cut through them and show the Discord channel, and you have to manually relabel the servers each time it updates, but still usable. It's the preferred communication app for online Dungeons and Dragons style games, so while it has a learning curve, it's worth trying if you plan on playing a tabletop game online.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

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.

Other Comments: 

They, after being contacted by me on Twitter, recommended going to their forums and voting up Voiceover accessibility. If you would like to do that, I'd appreciate it.
