Accessibility Comments

Most aspects of the app work well with VoiceOver. The three classes of problems that you will experience are: Complete inaccessibility - this is in areas such as graphs of information. Poor names - As with many apps, some of the button names are not done well. Data made available to VoiceOver does not match the visual display - The best example of this is when viewing portfolio positions for an account. Visually items like company or ticker symbol are first. But with VoiceOver, company and Ticker are the last two columns of info read. This means you hear all of the ticker price info before any identifying info about what stock the price info is for.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

I agree, I hate how it reads the ticker symbol last. The iPad version doesn't not do this. It has its own issues but at least you can hear your portfolio without going mad.

For the last year or so, you can't hear the prices of securities, either when shown individually, or when doing things like viewing positions for an account. Touching prices results in VOiceOver saying things like "colon symbol l 1 10 colon quantity l 90 colon most recent price l 90 colon most recent value f 7....". I can still initiate trades with the app, but I must use the web site for most everything else. I've waited a while for them to fix this, but they haven't. I've only one account left at Fidelity, and plan to move it soon. I used them for over a decade, but I can't use their services from my phone now, which is the place that counts.

The issue of positions reading basically database field names and such has finally been corrected in a 2.4 update. You are once again able to read the position information and the order is now improved so you hear identifying information before pricing information which I pointed out as a flaw n the original review.

Is anyone else having troubles making payments in the most recent update to this app? When I tap on the schedule option for a payee, the app no longer moves to the payment details for that payee. I've reported this to Fidelity but am curious if anyone else is hitting this.
