Accessibility Comments: 

This is extremely accessible with VoiceOver, and there is plenty to indicate that this is by design rather than chance.So far, the nearest that I can get to a real issue is the one option in the settings, where the checkbox doesn't give any indication of its state. Other than this, the developers seem to have done everything possible to make this easy to use and navigate for VoiceOver users. Great job, BBC!

VoiceOver reads all page elements.
