VoiceOver May Not Announce "Control Center" When the Control Center is Opened

VoiceOver Announcements/Feedback


When opening the Control Center, VoiceOver does not tell the user that Control Center is opened with a spoken announcement; this is in contrast to other system areas such as the Notification Center, where VoiceOver provides feedback once the gesture is performed. When the Control Center gesture is performed, there is no spoken feedback, and VoiceOver focus is usually (but not always) placed on the first item in Control Center.

Steps to reproduce

* Open Control Center, either by performing a one-finger slide from the top of the screen until you feel the first haptic on devices without a Home Button; or by performing a three-finger swipe up from the Status Bar on devices with a Home Button.
* The expected behavior is that, upon performing the gesture to open Control Center, VoiceOver will confirm this by saying, "Control Center."
* The actual behavior is that there is no spoken feedback when the gesture is performed, and VoiceOver focus usually (but not always) lands on the first element in Control Center.
