Hi I have found one unlabelled button in this app, its on the wallet tab, so not all buttons are clearly labelled. For reference this buton shows information about your various paypal balances if you have balances in other currencies than your home one and also if you have pending transfers.
Paypal has become less accessible in its 5.x updates. Specifically, the data entry screen for sending money has changed for the worse, and there are more unlabeled buttons.
Paypal has thus far ignored my requests for remediation of the accessibility concerns.
I would recommend reducing the app's accessibility rating.
Really? I have had no issues sending money and withdrawing it to my bank. I would not worry about the issues as they are very good at fixing them. Plus remember the ADA only works for government contracts. The ADA does not work for private corporations and international ones like paypal might be. So they can do what ever they please.
You need to explore by touch to find the "I am not a robot" tickbox. With trial and error tapping on it, you will then get the capture and a button to get an audio challenge. This doesn't always work though. Having tried it a couple of times, nothing happens when tapping either it or the get a new challenge button.
I reported several accessibility problems to Paypal CS and got the following reply:
Dear Robert Murray,
The PayPal app doesn’t have an option to allow any voice over or braille options. This is because we are not able to get it to be compatible with the different software out there for braille and voice over control.
You can use these options on the full website, but just not with the app itself.
