Device(s) App Was Tested On
Fully accessible with VoiceOver. Although designed for low vision users, there are some nice features that might make this worth checking out too for blind users as a possible alternative to the stock keyboard - swipe right to add a space, swipe left to delete a character for instance.

Does it work as direct typing mode?
I tested the app. It works fine for typing, but the gestures for deleting and other actions doesn't work, so it's like a common keyboard but with punctuation alongside the letters.
Check that Direct Touch is set to on in the VoiceOver rotor, as the gestures to insert a space or delete a character will not work if not.
The gestures for deleting, adding space, return and other functions doesn't work. I can only type as I do with the standard keyboard.
I'm not sure what else to suggest, as those gestures work reliably for me when Direct Touch is on.
I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling it. The gestures thing sound very good, as I'd be able to type almost like I do with BSI.
