Original Poster Notes:
After testing this app; I found that most of the buttons were properly read by VoiceOver; however, listings were not read. In the browse TV tab; none of the channels were spoken. If you randomly selected one; you could hear what was on that unknown channel. Under the recordings tab; I had a similar experience where VoiceOver did not read the list of recorded or scheduled programming. After receiving sighted assistance to set up a U-verse receiver to be accessed by this app; I found that the remote control screen was completely unreadable using VoiceOver.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

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.

Some areas have been improved. However, there are a lot of work that still need to be done to make this usable for the most part. It can be used for some things and that is a positive direction. Not sure if this was by accident or not with this new release and new layout. There are still quite a few buttons that are not labeled and elements that VoiceOver can't see.

What's New in Version 4.0

ATT U-verse for iOS has been completely redesigned to make it even easier for you to manage and watch your shows whenever and wherever you want. The new
My U-verse homepage highlights the shows that you care about most and recommends new shows for you to discover. Adding your favorite shows, channels, and

Just wondering what exactly you find not accessible? I'm able to watch on-demand shows recorded from my DVR and view was on the guide by searching for that channel name in the search menu? The remote part of the app is pretty an accessible but that's why we have that other app. The only issue that I'm having is now for whatever reason while scrolling through a channel listing voiceover teams to crash the app. That didn't happen on the previous release the previous roomies of this application was very accessible.
