Accessibility Comments: 

OK, first of all, be sure after you launch the app, if it doesn't automatically detect you're using voiceover and ask if you want to enable voiceover accessibility, that you manually do so. 1. Press vo+M to get to your menu bar. 2. Navigate with vo+right arrow to the Options menu and vo+down arrow to open it. 3. Vo+down arrow to the option to enable extended Voiceover support, and hit vo+space. Again, only do this if it doesn't automatically ask you if you want to enable it the first time you launch the wizard. When navigating text boxes, be sure before typing in them, regardless where they are or what screen they're on, to route the mouse pointer with vo+command+F5, then do a literal mouse click with vo+shift+space. When in your remote or local file views, if you want to go inside a directory, back up a directory, or download a file from within a directory, route your mouse, then do a vo+shift+double space, to literally perform a double mouse click. If you don't have a mouse or trackpad, you're kind a screwed on this note, sorry, boss, but to access the context menu for an item, you need to route the mouse pointer to it, then control, literally click the mouse trackpad. I don't mean vo+shift+space. I literally? mean! while holding the control key down, literally! click the physical mouse. Make sure you again, route your mouse pointer first though, or it won't work. That's pretty much it!

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface makes the app very difficult to use.

Other Comments: 

Actually, I'd not say so much the issues make the app very difficult to use, as much as it just makes things very very sloppy, in my opinion. Oh well though, it could be worse, ey?
