is scribble accessible for VoiceOver Users?

Forum
watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

hey guys! so, on watchOs3 there's finally an option to write a message with letters, instead of dictating it or replying with a build in reply, and so this thing is scribble. I'd like to know, is it accessible with VoiceOver and if yes, how exactly it can be used? Because when I'd like to use it I am having some trouble. I can't type. any help would be appreciated.

I don't have an Apple Watch so I don't know if scribble is accessible to VoiceOver users. When you reply to messages, are you able to use the handwriting mode that VoiceOver supports?

Hi,

The Scribble feature inside the Messages App does appear to be accessible on the Watch.
As a test, I found an iMessage, double tapped on the Scribble button and was presented with the Scribble screen.
Here I double tapped on a button that said Scribble and after a second or so, drew the letter "T" on the screen. VO announced the processes Scribble was going through to register the letter, once done I drew a lower case "e" on the screen and VO announced Te. And on it went, until I had written the word "Test".
At the bottom of the Scribble screen are buttons for Space, Delete etc.
It all worked but felt clumsy, or more likely I was clumsy, so I don't envisage using it myself.
Still a neat feature.., and pretty cool that Apple have made it VO friendly.

HTH
