Long time lurker, first time poster. My wife is legally blind and has tactile disabilities the prevent her from using a keyboard, or touch screen with any accuracy. She's successfully used an iPod Classic for years with velcro on the action buttons which has allowed her to use it to listen to audiobooks which she thrives on.
About a year ago I got her an iPod Touch Gen 5 with ios 7.1.2. She was thrilled that she could now text friends and do things she could never do before. One thing that has held her back from making the full transition to the Touch however, is that while we can get Siri and Voice Over to play nice together when it comes to basic music commands and sending/reading texts, etc, we can't seem to get it to fast forward, or rewind by a given amount. We've tried "Fast Forward XX seconds", "Jump Forward XX seconds" or "Skip Forward XX seconds".
These are Audible audiobook files imported into iTunes and sync'ed to her iPod Touch. She claims she was able to do this previously, but in the last couple of months it has not worked. I can find no evidence online that Siri has ever been able to complete this command, but she's rather insistent. I've also tried it on my iPhone 6 with iOS 8.3 with no success.
Does anyone have any ideas, or can offer any advice?
Thanks in advance for your consideration,
