Hi all, I've recently downloaded the latest IOS update, and have found a large number of voiceover bugs. Firstly, when typing in a text message, every few words voiceover takes me back to the top of the screen where it says 3 unread. Secondly, when typing in Safari or Chrome, I can't type with a braille display and can only use dictation, or the keyboard on the phone. Finally, I have noticed that when receiving phone calls, voiceover doesn't really work when trying to find the answer button. Has anyone else noticed these issues? I'll try and contact apple regarding them.
I use a Bluetooth keyboard or SIRI when entering text messages. I have not seen focus jump around when entering text messages using these methods. That being said, I am experiencing sudden and unexplained VoiceOver focus jumps. Sometimes buttons seem to get pressed by themselves. Yes, I have made sure the screen is clean, which is the usual source of this kind of problem.
I have a Braille display, but haven’t used it to control my phone very much. That’s something I’ll do more of in the future.
There are some issues with answering incoming calls, but I haven’t experienced your bug because I generally don’t look for the answer button, except on those rare occasions when I’m already in a call and need to switch to an incoming call. And then it seems to work fine. Usually I answer an incoming call with a 2-finger double tap.
Perhaps the most annoying issue I’ve found with incoming calls is that they sometimes disconnect my Bluetooth Aftershockz headset. This will happen if I’m actively using the phone with my headset. The Aftershockz are connectted and working normally. Then a call comes in and the ringing comes from the phone speaker rather than my headset. If I answer the call, I must hold the phone in handset mode to talk and hear the caller. Cycling the power on the Aftershockz causes it to reconnet to the phone and then I can continue the call using the headset. I’d love to see this issue resolved.
Another little pesky bug.
Another thing I've noticed is that voiceover reads notifications twice when announcing them on the lock screen. And I think there are two notifications exactly the same.

VoiceOver focus issue with Iframe
When Voiceover is on and the content is under Iframe I can't select necessary element if the page was scrolled down. It seems that Voiceover is not able to determine on what element I tapped on. Could you clerify this. Thank you!
