Accessibility Comments: 

I did not try every feature, but I was able to sign into my self-hosted blog, read posts, and make a post complete with tags and categories. You will get some HTML tags when reading old posts but if you choose preview from the settings you can read it more like it looks to others. The HTML tags appear to be inserted by the app and are visible on screen, so VO is reading what's there.

Some of the button labels are not that user friendly but they are descriptive enough. There are some oddities though. At the top VO will say "NavbarToggle." Next will be "NoteIconComment." Both bring up the menu when double tapped, and the first does not seem to bi visible on the screen. As with several other apps I have seen, if you keep swiping right through the menu you will eventually begin hearing the things under it. If you change your mind, "NavbarToggle" will do as it's label suggests and make the menu go away. "NavbarAdd" will take you to the new post screen. The only real problem I found was that at the bottom of the screen where you view or create posts is a series of icons. The last icon allows you to attach a photo, but it says "Cancel."

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.
