Accessibility Comments

This app is not accessible to VoiceOver users.

Most of the buttons have rather cryptic labels, but a more fundamental problem is that VoiceOver does not recognize the icons that represent PDF files. So, it is impossible to browse or open files with VoiceOver.

I briefly disabled VoiceOver to open the PDF file that is preloaded with the app. Having turned VoiceOver on again, I was able to access the content of the PDF file, but the process was far from intuitive.

This app has a long way to go before it will be accessible.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.
