Hi Guys just installed iOS 16.1 public beta 4 and now notifications are no longer read out on the locked screen. VoiceOver simply advises you have a notification. Checked settings and notification previews are still turned on. Works as expected when screen is unlocked.

Your Feedback is Important to Improving Accessibility in the Apple Ecosystem
Don't assume that Apple is aware of a bug or that your report won't make a difference - submitting bug reports directly to the company helps them reproduce and resolve the issue faster. Your report may provide crucial information. The more reports they receive, the higher the priority they give to fixing the bug.
If you're using a beta version, use the Feedback Assistant on your device to submit feedback and bug reports. If you're using a public release, follow the instructions on this page.
Should have added
You can still have the notifications read out by flicking as usual. They are just not read out by default.
Just checking, but have you made sure that Settings ~> Accessibility ~> VoiceOver ~> Verbosity ~> Always Speak Notifications is enabled?
any new features in voice over
any new voices and new enhands features in Voiceover?
Yes turned on
Hi, re Brian's post yes that setting is turned on. Interestingly as this has gone on it seems if the phone is awake on the locked screen then it does still read them out. Only if the phone is locked and screen shutdown does this not work. Odd.
Noticed this on the developer beta
I’m glad to know it’s not just me experiencing this issue.
I’m running the developer beta & seeing the issue as well.
I do have, “speak notifications” enabled.
Recently after the 3 or 4 beta of iPad VO does not read notification. It just say notification. Nuts.
Not using a beta, but the same thing is happening to me.
I'm still on 16.0.2 and it just started a few days ago.
Excuse me, I'm wondering the…
Excuse me, I'm wondering the volume of VoiceOver. From iOS 15.7, The volume of all media playing is boosted while that of VoiceOver keeps at the same level. VoiceOver cannot be listened clearly when the media is playing. Does anyone discover any improvement on the new beta release? Thx.
