This is very accessible to use. There is only one unlabeled button you will find towards the top of the screen on some pages. This button is your profile. Other than that, navigating around is a bit messy but easy to use.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Well, everyone has their own difference in deciding to use Zello or not. I still use it, and I especially use it to interact with users all over the world. it keeps the conversation flowing. but again, it's your call to keep Zello or not.

What's the difference between Zello and Roger?

1. Zello's audio quality is great, but not all that great. Roger's audio quality is outstanding!
2. Zello allows you to talk in channells, in roger, you can creat groups.
3. and finally, Zello's interface has menus, with roger, interface is simple to use.

I have tried signing up 3 times and it keeps kiming me back to the beginning. I am running IOS 13.3.1 with VoiceOver and a Focus 14 5th generation braille display. I enter username, password, email, phone. Then I hit sign up and it kicks more
back to the beginning.
