Hello everyone, I would like to discuss the behavior of voiceover and braille displays interacting with content that has an audio component. This could be a book in EasyReader or an article on a web site that has either a screen reader or human reader. What I have seen happening is when I encounter this, voiceover will display one word at a time. I want to be able to read all of the text and have more than one word on a line. When one word is displayed I can pan right, move to the next item with a thumb key or swiping and that will move to the next word. When you play the audio the braille will track along with the speech one word at a time. I would to disengage the audio having control over my screen reader. Anyone have any idea of what would be causing this to happen? I have tested this on ipads running ios 17.8 and 15 and my iphone 12 minnie running ios 14.8. Thank you in advance.
