Accessibility Comments: 

Almost everything in this app is easy to navigate and use. Equipment, classes, races, spells, monsters, rules, and DM tools are fantastic. The character manager does work but there are some unlabeled buttons and this section of the e app is a bit slow to navigate during actual game play. A simple text document has been much easier to use.
I also tried to send feedback in the app and the submit buttons doesn't actually work so there's that too.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

Other than a few unlabeled buttons and the character manager being a bit clunky this is a fantastic app for anyone wanting to start playing Dungeons and Dragons. Anything you can't find in it can be found online but the gaps left are surprisingly small. From a player standpoint it has all the basics to get you on your way but you will probably want a better way to handle your character sheet and organize your attacks or spells.
From the DM standpoint it has helped a lot. The name generator works and has been quite useful when I needed a name in a pinch but some aspects, like the encounter generator, aren't something I'd rely on. They can give you ideas but they'll still need a handful of creativity to put into action.
Overall though, this app is a must if D and D is, or could be, part of your life.
