Will the latest Facebook updating version 6.5 work with VO? For me and other users it doesn't work. Specially under notifications it jsut sounds klick....klick...klick when I'm swiping over the screen. How will this version work for us do you think or have any tips? I had updated Facebook 6.4 istead yesterday and it works so much better. But what can you do for version 6.5?
When I installed the new Facebook update, it was still when I had IOS 6. All the features worked very well with Voiceover. When I updated to IOS7, I had the issue you mentioned regarding only hearing clicks on the notification screen. I did already send a note to Facebook accessibility about this.
while it is unfortunate that the notifications screen doesn't read like normal, you can still click on them and see what the notification is that way. while its not the best, and Facebook should make it so that voice over will read it, its not like its completely unusable.
Write back here when you get answer from Facebook Accessibilities. Yeah, it's clicking when I tap over the screen under notification and I can double tap wherever to read any posts or commands. But I don't still know which is the latest commanded post or not. Facebook Accessibilities should makes something to get it work. VO have to read notifications without open it every time then We want to informed who's like or commended
Theya re aware of the isuse and will fix it hopefully in the next update. Tc all.
obviously the newest is the ones at the top of the list. again, its not optimal, but it is usable for the time being until its fixed.
Hello, I can assure you, the Facebook engineering team is aware of the accessibility issue, and will hopefully be fixed in the next Facebook update.
