This document is a summary of accessibility problems that arise through the usage of VoiceOver on the iPhone 3G S.
Please correct any error and fell free to add any a11y problems you know of for the iPhone VoiceOver.

Note from Everett

Steve Hockema might have knowledge about the technical problems of interfaces accessed with iPhone VoiceOver.

Problem with embedded objects (according to Everett)

  • Safari on the Mac with VoiceOver does not announce an link if it is embedded within a heading or picture.
  • A picture embedded within a link is not announced

Everett's work around

Duplicate the link after the object the original link is embedded in (e.g. picture).
In order to make the duplicated object invisible use a CSS class to set:

  • height zero
  • position absolute
  • overflow hidden
  • No labels
