Reading PDF files in IOS Safari

iOS and iPadOS

When I open a pdf file in the Safari web browser, only the first page is read by Voiceover. I am using an iPhone 7 running IOS12.1.

Are there any settings I need to adjust so that VO will read the entire page?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. This has happened to me before. What I usually do is import the PDF into iBooks and that seems to work. You can use a three finger swipe to the right to navigate to the correct page you want. I'm not sure if this is a VO issue with Safari or not.
I hope this helps.

There is an ongoing bug introduced in IOS12, where pdf's can't be read in Safari. Importing it into books, will work however. I'm assuming it will be fixed at some point.
