When these "Continue" buttons are disabled TalkBack only announces "Continue button" and when the buttons are enabled TalkBack announces "Continue Button Double tap to activate". TalkBack is not reading each digit individually in the Control number field. For example, the following Control number "12345678910234" would be read as: "Twelve trillion, thirty-four billion, etc." iOS VoiceOver (VO) For some versions of iOS VoiceOver there is a known issue where the count of Form Controls or Buttons will include the browser's built in controls in addition to any form controls that are present on the web page. For example, VO may include the back button, forward button, refresh button, and other built in controls. For the ID Verify Application there are only ever 3 form controls or buttons at any given time on the page. There is a known issue on iOS 12 and higher where VoiceOver does not announce second to last digit being deleted from an input field. VoiceOver may announce "Form Start" at different places throughout the Identify Verification application. "Form Start" refers to portions of the webpage that accept user input, not a specific IRS tax form.
