Version Of macOS App Was Tested On:

Accessibility Comments: 

I've just installed this to use in conjunction with Feedly, and so far everything appears to be fully accessible. The only minor issue that I've encountered a few times already is VoiceOver getting stuck in something of a loop when reading an article title. Basically, VoiceOver keeps repeating the feed name over and over again. This might just be user error on my part (smile)

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The app itself seems a little basic and perhaps even a little rough around the edges in places, but does what I need.
