I use VoiceOver on my iPhone 4S.
Three days ago iOS7 downloaded, and I installed it.
I have discovered several bugs with iOS7 and VoiceOver.
1. When the phone is locked and I click the home button, it reads the time not once, but twice.
2. The British English voice, which is the voice I use, is very unclear compared to when I was using iOS6. I have tried enabling enhanced quality. It downloads, but doesn't make any difference.It's very unpleasnt using this voice now.
3. Toggling on/off states doesn't always work the first time.
4. As I'm writing this, the phone suddernly said "screen locked" after it locked several minutes ago...
I'm sure i"ll discocver more bugs as the days go by...
Bottom line... iOS7 hasn't been tested for it's accessibility support. If you are using VoiceOver, I would recommend NOT upgrading to iOS7. And as Apple does things, it is not possible to downgrade to iOS6 once you have upgraded to iOS7.

I am one of the rare 1980's user of Apple products and have spent many a time trying to switch people to the Mac. I have bought my Mother (80) and sister (59) iPads which we're received with and embraced with delight. This new Os7 is a huge mistake! WE can't read anything even trying the contrast and bolding,
bla bla. Extremely disappointed.

Yes, iOS7 is a huge problem, especially for the visually impaired. I don't know what they were thinking. All the developers must have super-human, perfect vision or design in dark rooms. I hope someone at Apple is listening.
