iPhone Videos in browser full screen mode - screen reader reading content in the background - Any thoughts?

A scenario that came across while testing a video player on iPhone (10.3.2 / Safari browser) with JAWS 17,

"While video is playing in full-screen mode, I am swiping right to read the video controls such as Pause, Done, progress bar, etc. But the screen reader is reading the content behind the video player (i.e. the content in the primary screen)"

Is this issue related to Apple QuickTime player itself (or) the website? Any advice or thoughts, please?
