Hello, I’ve come across a weird VoiceOver experience with the Apple TV app. I hope you can help me figure this out.
I own 3 streaming devices and a smart TV. They are an Apple TV 4K, a Roku Streaming Stick, a Google Chromecast, and a Samsung Smart TV. (Please don’t ask me why I use so many ha ha.)
The screenreader experience is pretty much the same VoiceOver experience you’d expect on any Apple devices. Swipe left or right to move to the previous or next piece of content. Also, the app’s design is very consistent no matter which device you’re using. The problem is that the Apple TV version doesn’t let you navigate to certain content.
For example, if I’m on any non-Apple TV streaming device then I can navigate between the title, description, ratings, etc. But this content isn’t available for me to hear on the Apple TV. I can only navigate between buttons or sections when I swipe left or right.
Is someone able to test this out if you own multiple devices or a smart TV? I’m confused why the actual Apple TV experience is worse than it is on other non-Apple TV devices.
