voiceover reading time updates everytime changes

has anyone else noted that when the screen is locked and a notification comes in, and or the screen changes, voiceover when i use wired headphones, is reading these updates constantly, particularly the clock change 8:14, 8:15, 08:16, etc. driving me mad! using the latest ios 13 and speak notifications is off.


Same problem here

So happy I'm not alone with that annoying bug encountered since updating to IOS 13.2, my first IOS 13 update. It doesn't happen each time I lock the phone, but I don't know what's creating this constant wake on the lock screen. I may be totally wrong but I think it happens more often when I have a headphone connected to my Iphone.

My workaround

Just go home once, then continue what you're doing. It works for me.

People state this is because focus now goes to time instead of notification. I do not care having to hear the time when I get a notification on the lock screen.
