Accessibility Comments: 

This app works great with voiceover, at the bottom of the screen you can either hide or show the keyboard to type the commands, when you touch the upper part of the screen you will be able to hear the text that the mud is displaying and when your focus is in this part of the screen everytime a new text comes in vo will read it automaticaly. there are a lot of muds available to choose from and you can easily add new ones. I have used a bluetooth keyboard to play the muds and its perfect!

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I have tried the TMC app and although its usable this one is much more recommended, with all these features you have the same functionality of a full mud client in the palm of your hand. The only issue i had with the app was related to accents, Im from Brazil and the accents aren't working, but for english muds there are no problems at all.
