ColorVisor is fully accessible with VoiceOver.

ColorVisor Privacy

The ColorVisor saves the last image displayed in the photo scanner view and the last scan position within this image to provide this data to the user when the app is launched again. Saving takes place within the app sandbox on the device. Other data will not be collected, stored or transmitted.

Under certain circumstances, for example a device backup, the named data may leave the device. visorApps is not responsible for such actions. Apples own privacy regulations do apply.
