Hi,

I have a question regarding VoiceOver and HTML on iOS.

Given the following markup:

<h2>
<span class="foo">Today</span>
<span class="bar">4th of January</span>
</h2>

How can I make VoiceOver read the whole h2? Currently it stops on each span
(and says that it is a heading level 2). Is there some setting for
VoiceOver, or is there some workaround in the markup I could use?

If I re-arrange the markup and place the second span inside the first, I
can make VoiceOver read it all with a two-finger swipe down – but that's
not what I want. TalkBack and VoiceOver on Mac reads the whole h2. From
what I've found through Google, this is a "feature" of VoiceOver on iOS –
but is there a workaround?

I doubt there is.
You can try<span role="presentation"> but since they rae spans to
begin with I doubt that Voiceover will act any different.
What does Voiceover do when you navigate by headings (select from the
naigate by headings option from the rotor)?

It does not Birkir. I even tried the display property when I was testing it back in August, but was unable to get anywhere with it.
Unfortunately Øyvind, you would have to live with it. If you do find a fix, I'd be interested in learning about it.

My office has had inserts several spans in their web pages to mark items for JS operations and has experienced breaking up of the paragraphs and headings in IOS also. As you indicate role=presentation does not resolve this issue, should it be brought to Apple's accessibility team?

Thanks,

This is also especially annoying when screen reader text is present within
a heading.

But we have had some success with using role="text".

So try this:
<h2>
<span role="text">
<span class="foo">Today</span>
<span class="bar">4th of January</span>
</span>
</h2>

I've heard the role of "text" which was proposed for ARIA 1.1 has been removed from the latest editor's working draft. I'm not sure what the final decision on it will be.

I think we should. I know Paul on here filed a bug with them regarding aria-describedby and aria-labeledby. That was when iOS 10 came out.

There has been 3 updates since then and they have not addressed this bug. I state that to say that I don't know what their plans are and what they are willing to prioritize.

I can confirm that the role="text" trick works. Sadly, it does indeed look
like it's not in ARIA 1.1 [1].

I've tried other roles that may be relevant, but e.g. role="heading" does
not work. However, "button" does, which may save me in one case. The
downside is that the heading is inside a link, so VoiceOver identifies it
all as a button, a heading, and a link (in that order).

Seems like I have to choose between the lesser of three evils here, where
role="text" may be the least harmful. After all, ARIA 1.0 is the current
recommendation, and perhaps VoiceOver changes its behaviour before
role="text" is removed from its implementation.

Øyvind.

What about role="none", does that do anything?
role="text" if it works, is at least a temporary workaround (make sure
to file an issue with Apple about this for chance of a longer term
fix).
role="button" is a bad idea, a button is not allowed inside a link in
html, and assistive technologies are not going to treat this construct
consistently.

Using role="none" makes VoiceOver read the whole text, but you have to
cycle all the spans and listen to the same text multiple times. (This is
the same that happens using role="heading".)

role="text" looks to have been moved to ARIA 2.0. See:
https://www.w3.org/2016/03/31-aria-minutes.html#item04

Still it does do the trick, perhaps by accident though. I guess that counts
as a hack?

Subject: Re: Spans inside headings pauses VoiceOver on iOS
← Previous message | No next message

For VoiceOver bugs with Safari which uses the Webkit browser rendering engine you should instead file them at the public WebKit Bugzilla, https://bugs.webkit.org/page.cgi?id=bug-writing.html. You can search for previously entered bugs and see the status of other accessibility bugs listed so it’s better than their internal, private apple bug reporter. You can also share your bug reports publicly to make folks aware of the issue.

Here’s a bug I filed as an example, https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id2578
