Accessibility Comments: 

I could not check the automatically-triggered video from Ohio, so I did not get to enjoy the multimedia effect, but the rest was interesting.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

Seemed a little information lite, but perhaps the multi media fills that in.
