The Radio tab in the native Music app is not fully accessible with VoiceOver

Description

The ‘Radio’ tab in the native Music app contains some graphical UI elements which are not recognized by VoiceOver and can interfere with the movement of VoiceOver focus when swiping through the contents of this tab.

This behaviour may understandably have you assume that there is nothing more on this screen, when in fact there is.

Additionally, you are likely to encounter a number of “Play” and “Schedule” buttons on this tab, where the UI element they are associated with is not recognized or spoken by VoiceOver.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the native Music app and navigate to the Radio tab.
  2. Place VoiceOver focus at the top of the page.
  3. Swipe right with 1 finger repeatedly to move VoiceOver focus through all UI elements on this screen.

You are likely to find that swiping will take you to a point somewhere on this screen where VoiceOver fails to recognize or speak a UI element. If you swipe right at this point, focus may not move.

If you continue to explore this screen using a combination of touch and swiping, you are likely to find a number of “Schedule” and “Play” buttons where there is no feedback from VoiceOver in regard to what content they are associated with.
