This is an issue I've only seen mentioned briefly, and that surprises me. I'm still on iOS 16, but I've updated the phones of family members. If anyone remembers what happened to Eloquence in later versions of iOS 16, that seems to have affected all the other voices in iOS 17. The only way I can describe it is that it sounds like VO is stuttering, or tripping over itself. I noticed this most often when scrolling quickly, through apps like Safari, Facebook and Amazon. When I'd flick right to the next element, VO would say just a syllable of the element before, then move on to what I was currently on. I reported this to Apple early on in the beta cycle of iOS 17 when I had the beta on my iPad. It doesn't seem as prominent on the iPad now, as it does on my family members' iPhones (one is an SE 3, the other a 14 plus). I'm trying to avoid updating, because I literally can't imagine having to listen to VO constantly stuttering like that.
