Weird bug when reading Apple Books with Voiceover

iOS and iPadOS


I was helping a friend with his phone earlier today and came across a really strange bug when reading content in Apple Books. When he performs a two finger flick down to read all, the phone just keeps making the changing page noise over and over and doesn't read anything. This is an iPhone 12 running iOS 15.2. I have a 10S running the same version of iOS and performing the same gesture in Apple books works as expected on my phone. Has anyone else experienced this issue when using Voiceover with iOS 15? If so, has this been reported to Apple Accessibility? Seems like a pretty serious bug as it prevents him from using Apple Books with Voiceover.
As I can't reproduce this, any feedback is really appreciated.
Thank you.

I can't reproduce this either, but the one thing I'd check is that it's set to page mode not scrolling. I can't remember the exact name of the setting, but I remember the app didn't really work at all with scrolling on.
