It’s quite straightforward. You simply navigate to the Applications folder in Finder. Locate the app file that you want to remove, and send it to the Trash.

In most cases, this should work just fine.

If you want to ensure that any additional files or folders that the app may have created elsewhere are also removed, you may want to take a look at installing either AppCleaner or AppDelete. Both do quite a good job of this and are accessible with VoiceOver. I personally use AppDelete, but it does cost a few dollars.
