Why did youtube move comments on iPhone? They were fine the way they were. Is that what the world's coming to? People are too lazy to scroll down for comments?
the accessibility on the youtube app is a little bit tricky
when I go to the suscribes tap and it has 3 taps on the top.
like unwatch, already watched and live.
and when using voiceover. we can not find this 3 taps.
and we have to turn on screen recognition on to find it.
Hi Charlene. if you want to share a video in the YouTube app, do the following. One, find and double tap the collapse video button. two, locate the title of the video you are currently watching. three, using one finger, swipe down on the videos title until you reach the share menu and double tap. I know this is kind of a roundabout way of Sharing videos, but it worked.
Moving videos in a playlist?
Is there a way to rearrange videos in a playlist? YouTube help says you can do this, but I haven’t found a way using voiceover. Any help?
Re: Moving Videos in a Playlist
I tried everything I could think of in both the YouTube app and in Safari and I can’t get anything to work. Do you have access to a computer? At this point, I’m thinking that’s the only way to do it. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. Hope someone else can figure it out.
There's an annoying bug with comments.
Let's say someone named Jack Johnson left a comment in the comment section. Scroll onto his name and VoiceOver will say Jack Johnson, Jack Johnson. The repeating of usernames is unnecessary and annoying.
On the computer you have to drag it.
If you have not Updated to the Latest Version ... DO NOT!!!!
Accessibility appears to be completely broken in the latest YouTube update. I updated this on January 17, 2023. I cannot change channels. I cannot find videos. I cannot like videos. All roter actions appear to be disabled. I even went and deleted and then reinstalled the app. Whoever passed this lump into the toilet bowl should be ashamed of themselves!
Haven't Received The Update Yet
If this is true, I'll be sending an email to Google Disability Support.
I am truly amazed
I cannot be the only one having the issues with YouTube making the app almost completely unusable over the last two updates. Surely others are experiencing this issue? I would expect to see lots of posts about this. Running the latest iPhone 13 with the latest iOS update.
Update on YouTube Issue
So after my previous two messages about my problems with YouTube, a friend of mine asked me if I had turned off screen recognition. Of course I hadn't. After all, I hadn't turned it on! Yet, when I went into the YouTube app and checked, screen recognition was turned on. Seriously, I had not realized it was on. I sure did not intentionally turn it on so it never occurred to me that could be a problem. Also, screen recognition makes one think it should improve accessibility of a program not destroy it. In the end, I am forced to believe that either I accidentally turned it on or that something happened during an app update where Apple turned it on. Anyway, if you encounter a completely unusable version of YouTube, try it and see if that fixes your problem.
