During a Say All, VoiceOver Does Not Ignore Incoming Text Messages

Category
VoiceOver Speech/Voices
Severity
Moderate

Description

With the introduction of iOS 8, Apple introduced a welcome feature where, when a say all (two finger swipe down) was in progress, all incoming notifications would not be spoken by VoiceOver and text reading would continue. This feature works well, with one exception: incoming text messages are still spoken by VoiceOver.
