IOS App reduces volume of my screenreader



  • Günter Hanke

    Hi again,

    normally when i am in a telephone call (not Rainbow) and i put the phone away from my ear.

    Then the speaker changes from internal to loudspeaker.

    And then i can listn to VoiceOver.


    Before 1.86.4 this was the case in Rainbow two.


    But since 1.86.4 this is no longer the case.


    The real voices of the other participants  is switching to the loudspeaker but the VoiceOver still comes via the internal loudspeaker.


    I don't know what the problem is exactly but it has something to do with the speakers, the telephone mode and so on.


    This is an very problematic situation for all blind persons using Rainbow!


    And Webex and Zoom are not having this problem with VoiceOver...


    This should be solved very soon!

    after the update of Rainbow and of IOS to 14.5.0 it seams that the problem is solved now.

    In several Audio calls and boubles  i could hear my screenreader VoiceOver again when i holdmy phone away from my ears.
