I designed an iPhone mobile app and now I need to conduct an accessibility review. The requirement was to follow iOS8 UI guidelines and make it look as if it was a native app.
For the first time I used VoiceOver feature to test it and what i noticed is that when you have navigation buttons such as "Cancel" and "Done" placed in the toolbar on top, they read first before all the content. This way user needs to go back all the way to top after reading, or in this case filling in the form, to be able to finish or go to the next step.
Many mobile UIs nowadays use a similar scheme to put the buttons on the top instead of logically place them after the forms. What are advantages/disadvantages of this from the blind person's perspective who uses VoiceOver?
