Accessibility Comments

While it is not the easiest, it is very possible to use this app and the product it supports. Screen recognition is needed for account creation and the presets screen as without it, VoiceOver just reads all controls as one solid block of text, but outside those things the app runs nicely enough, if not perfectly. Nothing gives feedback when selected, but double taps do work to choose options in settings, session and other menus. The unlabeled elements between levels 1-5 in sessions screens, as near as I can make out, are half steps, so 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 etc. The other unlabeled thing to be found is the back button, though sometimes there's another one before it that seemingly serves no purpose to me. All that aside, it was pretty straight forward to use and enough reads that I wouldn't call it necessarily difficult or a trial, just takes a couple minute play around to really understand.

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.
