I had heard that this app was not accessible, but that is currently not true. It's amazing! Some things don't read, but when they don't, they're intuitively placed where there is no ambiguity.

Even the video tab is accessible! The videos play beautifully, and they are all clearly marked. The locations area could be better indicated, but it's totally usable. It beats the heck out of the native weather app on IOS.
