This is exactly why I always wait to install new updates until I feel they work out the accessibility kinks. I thought we were there with iOS 14.3 but evidently not. I’m especially frustrated because many in this very forum encouraged me to update it, saying many accessibility bugs were fixed. That may be true, but within minutes of the update I’m already finding one of my most used apps much harder to use.
My news app just went from being a relatively easy to scroll feed of articles organized under headings that could be reached with the rotor headings option to a cluttered mess that I’m having a heck of a time finding my way through. Instead of voiceover just telling me there’s an advertisement, it now seems to be reading me every element of the ad, the graphics, the text, the links, etc. Furthermore, trying to navigate by heading hardly ever works, and many category headings in the feed are no longer actually tagged as headings, meaning I can’t navigate to them. Trying to flick through the feed is a pain. I will touch an article, flick right to move to the one below it and then flick back again only to find that I don’t land on that original article again. At this point I’m having to three fingers scroll up and down and just touch the screen each time in the hopes of finding some thing I’m looking for. Anyone who thinks this is improvement, I don’t know what to tell you. I am hugely disappointed.
