Description

When customising a Lock screen, VoiceOver does not announce the name of the widget that is currently placed in the top slot. However, VoiceOver does speak the names of widgets placed in the other available slots.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Ensure that you have a Lock screen with widgets placed in all of the available slots
  2. Ensure that VoiceOver is enabled
  3. Navigate to the Lock screen
  4. Perform a 1-finger long press on the Lock screen so as to enter ‘Edit’ mode
  5. Double tap with 1-finger on the “customise” button below the desired Lock screen
  6. Place VoiceOver focus on to each of the available slot positions and listen to what VoiceOver announces.

You should find that for each of the slots located below the time widget, VoiceOver will announce the name of the widget - in the form of “conditions, weather widget”.

This is not the case for the top widget slot, where VoiceOver announces “top widget, double tap to customise”.
