Netflix with VoiceOver no longer sees the movies/series synopsis

iOS and iPadOS

Before when using Netflix, specifically in the screen you get to when double-tappping a movie or series, in which it tells you its duration, allows you to play it, see its trailers and other info, remember how before, you could in this screen, flick, and it’ll read you the synopsis of the movie or series in question?since about a few weeks ago, when I flick through this screen, it tells me the duration, the Play button, Trailers and more etc; before I seem to remember that after the duration, it’ll give you the synopsis of the movie or series! Any of you guys find this, so as to maybe it’s a voiceOver bug in which VO might not be seeing some part of the Netflix screen? This is getting frustrating since I’m having to google and see what the series is about! Yes you can see each episode’s synopsis, but in terms of movies for example, or if you want to know the overall synopsis of a series without having to read each episode’s synopsos to gather info on what the series is about, can get kind of annoying! thanks for any info you guys might have.

I am having the same issues on the Apple TV 4th generation unit myself. I wrote a separate forum topic this evening on this very thing and how it's very annoying.

I am running Netflix on my iPhone 10S and I am able to read the synopsis just fine on both movies and series. Where I am seeing issues is on the search tab. In this tab I am no longer able to see the various categories that I can look thru.

This is not happening on my iPhone 6S either.
I recently selected Marvel's Iron Fist to take a look at its synopsis, and I found it right next to the duration label just fine.

Even on the Apple tv I am not able to use the remote to see what the shows or movies are about anymore.
