Have any other beta testers run into this problem? I'm using an iPhone 12 mini, with the latest beta version of iOS16.4. Ever since I updated to the iOS16.4 beta, my phone doesn't recognize text fields in the facebook app as text fields. It's the same type of Voiceover bug that crops up in some other apps, where you get as far as turning off quick nav, but the on screen keyboard doesn't appear, nor can you use a Bluetooth keyboard. at the moment, I can't post comments or replies. I've restarted the phone, I've shut down and restarted the facebook app, and so far, nothing has worked. My fiance isn't a beta tester, and her Facebook app is the same version as mine, and she's still able to post comments and replies thanks to her phone still recognizing text fields in the app as text fields.

It’s fixed now
Good morning Steve,
The bug you speak of, where voiceover does not recognize the comment area as a text field, has been fixed as of yesterday’s beta. One observation that I have, which is also great, is that, as far as I’m able to tell, braille screen input no longer crashes, when deleting by word. I will need to do some more testing to make sure this is 100% accurate, but from the little bit of testing I’ve already done, this seems to be true. This is great news, because I’ve been dealing with this bug for years.
Note, when I speak of things being fixed or otherwise changed, I am referring to the developer beta. Beta three was released yesterday, so those of you using the public beta, may get the same fixes either today or tomorrow.
