Hi list.

Others have mentioned these bugs so thought I'd provide an update with my findings.

Just spoke with a senior adviser via the accessibility line who is handling this case.

The email report I sent is as follows.

To whom it may concern:

I'd like to report the below bugs when browsing the respective app or iTunes stores on iOS when utalising the VoiceOver screen reader.

Steps to reproduce.

1) Open the app store.

2) tap on the search tab.

3) tab on the search edit file located in the top left portion of the screen.

4) Enter in a app name such as Facebook.

5) Swipe or run your finger around the screen.

Result: Notice that there is an area on the screen that VoiceOver reports as search results and that it is not possible to obtain any search results.

Expected Results: To be able to obtain search results while using VoiceOver.

The other bug relates to dictation.

If I dictate an app or song into the search area that text isn't retained.

The only workaround I've managed to figure out so far is to manually type in the required search string.

I hope these issues will be addressed in a future update to iOS as they are extremely frustrating.

The device I'm running the software on is an iPhone 7 128GB.

Version, 10.0.1 (14A403).

Yours sincerely,

Sadam Ahmed

The rep told me to set up the phone as new and see if the problem persists.

To those of you experiencing this have you tried with a fresh device?

Frankly  not sure if it'll help but worth giving it a  go I guess.

I did send them feedback early during the public beta phase quite disheartening to see these bugs have made it into the stable build.

Here's hoping that it's addressed in the next patch update.

Any thoughts you may have would be appreciated.


Best regards to all,
