Description

When running a Shortcut that prompts the user to select from a menu, VoiceOver users are unable to dismiss the menu with a gesture.

When not using VoiceOver, you can simply tap on the screen somewhere away from the menu to dismiss it.

Steps to reproduce

To reproduce this behaviour you will need to have a Shortcut that when activated displays a list menu (such as a list of apps, where tapping on an app in the list will open that app).

When you trigger this Shortcut, you would expect to be able to dismiss the menu by performing the scrub gesture (for those times when you trigger a shortcut, but then decide that you don't want to activate any of the menu options).

This gesture does nothing and there is no place on the screen where you can tap to dismiss the menu.
