Nothing until iOS 11.3 is released to the public, if Apple hasn't fixed this 
then and you use the music app often then definitely don't update to 11.3 but 
send an email to Apple Accessibility and scream bloody murder.
Please remember not to send such an email now, that is "Do not" email Apple 
Accessibility about this now since this is beta software and they don't deal 
with pre-release software issues, that is what the beta community and the beta 
feedback form is for.
I think at this point this thread will hopefully close, thanks, Mark, for 
posting this and let's all not clutter the list more about this. If you are a 
public beta tester you know what you have to do in terms of submitting Feedback 
via the Feedback app all beta testers have, if you don't do it you shouldn't be 
a public beta tester.

Regards,
Sieghard

Testers!

Yikes! Apple really dropped the ball with this one! I'm not part of the beta 
program, and I only have one current enough iOS device that could even run it, 
so I'm not sure how much help I could realistically be. If there's anything 
non-beta iOS users can do, would you let us know?


Thanks,
Ari
