VoiceOver and text fields on websites

Since the latest update on iOS, I am having difficulties completing text in text fields on websites, including this one. If I want to review what I have written the Rueter settings only allow me to read the whole text rather than word by word or character by character. I am using an iPhone 6.

#1 It's a known bug

It is an issue with multi-line edit fields. Several of us have reported this bug to Apple, but I suggest you also report it. Someone wrote that turning VO off then back on might help, but it didn't seem to help for me. Also, if you have a bluetooth keyboard, it will probably have the same kind of issue with the arrow keys not doing anything when quick nav is off in a text field.
Apple did write me back and say they are aware of the bug, but didn't know when it would be resolved.
