Accessibility Comments: 

besides from some mislabeled buttons issues, the major accessibility problem of this app is the part where you're slecting the songs that you want to play.
on the main screen of Audibly, there are 4 buttons that you can tap, which are MenuSettings, MenuFavorites, Listen and Broadcast. When you double tap the broadcast button, you will be presented with the songs that you currently have on your device. However, The Voice Over is not able to read what songs you have on the device using Audibly interface; The only clue that you have that there are something on the screen is the Voice Over sound effect that you are moving from one element to another. therefore, selecting a particular song is not possible. the only way you can use this without any sighted assistance is to double tap any song, randomly, and then hit done on the upper right hand of the screen.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most 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.
