Disney + is a fantastic app, but there are just a few things that seem difficult. The main thing is that when something is playing, the controls for playback disappear very quickly. This makes it very hard to access buttons on the screen, as it takes longer to find these buttons using a screen reader. I find personally, that my apple watch comes in very helpful, as there are several buttons that can be accessed while a show is playing including a 10 second rewind, 10 second fast forward, and a play/pause button. ,a helpful suggestion for developers would be to either incorporate a hide/show controls button on the screen, similar to hulu, or just display the controls for 10 to 15 seconds at a time. For users with a watch, it may be easier to control your playback with the controls on the watch. However, every time you press the rewind or fast forward button, the screen reader will announce your playback position. To avoid this, you can turn the screen reader off, or just turn off speech output. Without a watch, I recommend learning the spacial layout of the screen, perhaps with the help of a sighted person, and then use the controls without voiceover.
