Bruce,

Thank you for your comments!  I have not used this app with a totally blind switch user.  Thank you for contacting the developer; were you able to provide the developer with specific accessibility issues and/or specific suggestions on how to make this app truly accessible for students with visual impairments?  

Everyone, if this app would be beneficial for your visually impaired student, please contact the developer and if possible, provide accessibility feedback!
