Accessibility Comments: 

The buttons in this app are not clearly labeled. In the radio player, there are only a few buttons and I was able to figure them out. The podcasts area was a little more complicated. I'll describe the radio player here, perhaps someone can add a comment with information about the podcasts. The radio screen contains four different play buttons with a number at the end of each label. the button ending in 0 plays C-SPAN Radio, and the buttons ending in 1, 2, and three play audio from the three C-SPAN cable television channels. The info button brings up two completely unlabeled buttons. The first one opens safari to the C-SPAN radio web page, the second one starts a new email message to C-SPAN.

VoiceOver Performance:

Usability:
