Accessibility Comments

This app is extremely helpful for people who are learning English and completely accessible with VoiceOver. I found only one mislabelled button, the last button on the tool bar, when in the Oxford Dictionary. This button pronounces the word in the search field.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
