airmail needs to have accessibility support to work with Apple's built-in screen-reader voiceover
Currently a blind mac user cannot use airmail, as buttons, tables, folders, and checkboxes do not contain proper labels. To test your app to ensure that it has accessibility do the following:
1. press command-f5 to start voiceover.
2. press v to skip past the tutorial and ensure that voiceover is talking on your computer
3. use the voiceover keys to move around the app, and listen to the kinds of unlabeled controls that you have within the app such as buttons, checkboxes, and table items. . You the user will hear that VO simply says "button", or "table" without giving the user any kind of description as to what the item does . If you wish to enable to caption panel while VO is working, press, control-option-command-f10. This will give you a visual representation of what is being spoken on the screen to the voiceover user. to learn more about voiceover visit:

I concur with the post and comment above. I've just downloaded the 1.5 Beta and it is still not accessible. The thing is that it seems like it could easily be made accessible if only buttons and tables were labeled correctly.

I am also running into accessibility issues with Airmail. Shortcat is unable locate text on any controls which means I find myself reaching for my pointing device a lot.
