Great app with a bit of a learning curve

First, this app is great. It makes easy work of rolling multiple dice of different sizes and provides a really easy mechanic to roll and clear formulas. I'll be passing it along to other blind and visually impaired players and it will get some serious action when i run my next campaign.

Some things of note:
The app is self voicing so that anyone can get audio feedback regardless of whether they use the VoiceOver screen reader. The voice can also be turned off.
Because it is self voicing, the VoiceOver speech is suspended so that there aren't competing voices speaking at once.
There is a bit of a learning curve to using the app. Developer might consider adding a modal window that pops up the first time the app is started to give the basics of the guide and to direct users on how to reach the guide should they need instructions again.

Rolling dice couldn't be easier. Just select the dice by tapping it and roll by swiping up. You can combine dice of all sizes in any combination as well. Chaos bolt has never been easier to cast with its two d8 and one d6 combo.

A button is provided to roll two d20 at once to simplify advantage and disadvantage.

Modifiers are really easy as well with one button that you can tap with one finger to increase the modifier and tap with two fingers to decrease it.

There are multiple ways to change the speech pattern of the app. It can be turned off completely, speak brief sentences, speak full sentences, or read individual rolls. That makes it easy to see which dice you rolled low on. I'm looking at you, great weapon master, sharp shooter, and empowered spell meta magic.

There are a few kinks to get ironed out. For example, if you're a swift swiper, you might find that the app repeats actions multiple times. While testing, i rolled a formula of dice and swiped down to clear it: then quickly swiped left to create a new formula and the app repeated the clear formula action.

VoiceOver users might also get confused when navigating the settings and previous rolls section because you cannot swipe or explore by touch in these sections. Just listen to the guide and use the single and double long tap custom gestures and you'll be up and running in no time.
This is the situation where the modal window on very first app launch would be useful.

All in all, i like this app a lot and I'm excited to see where it goes from here. By far the most accessible dedicated dice rolling app I've ever used. Great job.
