I did similar testing to Shawn at about the same time, and got essentially the same results.

I did a limited review on iOS devices a year ago - I couldn't get the darn thing to load on my Android device, so testing there was a nonstarter. Here's the feedback I gave our staffer (we ended up not using it, in part because of this review).

"On an iDevice, it's reasonably accessible. There are some items that are not well labeled - for example, the menu button in the upper right just says "button", and when you open it, it's labeled "me". Not very helpful in figuring out what's in it. Maps and photos are not accessible. Is there a place, when you load photos, to put a description of the picture? If so, make sure that is filled in, as that's what it would draw from to make the photo readable. The map is not accessible; it simply doesn't read at all."

Hope this is a helpful start.

Hi all (and please forgive crossposts)!

Has anyone checked accessibility on the guidebook mobile app? One of my campuses is considering it, and I’ve never even heard of it…
