Audio Ducking a broken accessibility feature?

iOS and iPadOS

Have noticed this, despite keeping Audio Ducking ON VoiceOVer speech is barely audible when you are trying to access menu's on your Music Player, Podcast Player, When trying to end a call, Skype etc.

Is anyone else having a problem with Audio Ducking? If yes, could you kindly comment below. If we are having more such users with the problem, we will have to report it to apple as an accessibility bug. Kindly note I have updated IOS to 8.2, the latest update to the OS with support for apple watch.

If you're having problems with audio ducking, turn VoiceOver off and back on. Sometimes the audio ducking feature stops working as expected, either causing the main audio to remain permanently ducked or not ducked at all. The only way I found to get the feature working again is to turn VoiceOver off and back on.

If the audio is ducking and you still can't make out what VoiceOver is saying, turn up the VoiceOver volume.
