In using this app I can say it is 100 percent accessible. The only thing I noticed is that it will not go to the speaker when brought away from the face. Also for some reason my second time through my phone lagged. Luckily I had a speaker I plugged into the headphone jack. The service is wonderful and should you want to explore go to their website and give it a try. They need more android users probably. If you want to hear a demo of Aira (on the wrong platform though) go to and go to the archives then to January of this year. I used this service so far to learn the basics of, and to install the inc in my printer. I have not used it since, however I really feel I've gained a lot of confidence in usage of my devices. I can't wait to try this when I'm out.
