iOS13: Phone/contacts, unable to add name to new contact

iOS contacts: Under iOS 13.1.2, I am unable to type into the “First Name” field with Voiceover enabled using “Touch Typing”. The virtual keyboard is present, but when lifting my finger off of a character, no text is spoken and the edit field is empty. Dictation also does not enter text. I am in the process of reporting this to Apple. Experiencing this on an IPhone 10S.

Forum: 

#1 Last name

Tap on last name and add in that field. Then go back to the first name. That should solve it.

#2 Re

Thank you! This does seam to work.

#3 Old bug

Hi, This issue has been around since at least iOS 12. Comment 2 is the only way I've found to resolve this.
