No problem. One way this can be helpful is like so.

<div class="hidden">
<button>Scroll Up</button>
<button>Scroll Down</button>
<div class="scrollable">

Then, when Voiceover is enabled, you can remove the class of 'hidden' to
display the scroll buttons at the top of the scrollable div, and when
Voiceover is disabled, the class of 'hidden' can be readded to continue with
the original layout.
