Summaries

Short summary

Tested for blind with screen reader. Media Overlay is currently not supported by the reader. The labelling of controls for Voiceover needs to be improved in all screens across the app.

Long summary

This application is good for low-vision readers but not so accessible for blind readers at this time.
A crucial point is the lack of the Table of Contents.
The UI is quite accessible, but not intuitive. It is difficult for blind people to change page (hidden buttons) and to start TTS. It is not possible to close all the pop up windows like the Visual Settings with Voiceover running.
In the free version the app does not allow full screen view of the book text.
