iPad Accessibility Issues on iOS 7.1

iOS & iPadOS
After upgrading to iOS 7.1 I've been facing problems reading documents on an iPad 4 using VoiceOver. All of my daly materials, files and documents are stored in Dropbox. VoiceOver automatically skip lines and paragraphs after pausing the spoken text. This causes problems for me while reading a document on an iPad using Dropbox. Has any one experienced a similar issue or any accessibility bugs on an iPad after updating to iOS 7.1?

I think the problems are DropBox-related and not iPad accessibility issues per se. DropBox on iPad has some unrelated problems already, and I'm not sure how aware they are of them. Is it possible you could use another app with DropBox integration, such as VoiceDream reader, to read most of these assignments?

I agree. Unfortunately sometimes I have to do big swipes inorder to navigate. Also, tapping with 4 fingers near the bottumn of the screen activates the last selected item when multitasking gestures option is on. Any hints?

Have you tried accessing you're documents in dropbox using air file?

Not at all. I haven't tried the app. Is it fully accessible with VoiceOver?

It sure is. I used it to add my dbopbox and bitcasa accounts and it is 100 percent accessible.
