Accessibility Comments: 

this app appears to be, on the whole, accessible with voiceover. the basic function as a keyboard does not seem to have any issue, although there appear to be some on-screen keyboard features which of course, would be inaccessible anyway.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.
