[BCAB] message and contact searching with ios version 13.1.2

Hi Phil,

After performing the search, are you exploring the screen by flicking or sliding your finger around?
The reason I ask is that, since upgrading to iOS 13, I'm having several situations where VoiceOver behaves as if there is almost nothing on screen.  Flicking to the right just gives the sound when you flick right after the last item on screen.  If I then put my finger near the top of the phone, about half way across, and slide my finger down the screen, the info I expect to find is there after all.

After that, I can flick left and right as normal.

Hope that helps.

Going into either:

Contact, then search.  Or

Messages, compose.

I key part of a contact name, and then explore the screen for the results.
However, in the latest version of ios, all I hear is the dull sound of invalid area.

I have changed the typing mode to standard because of problems explained on this list earlier in the month.  What else do I need to do to make my device usable?

Many thanks to those who have the inclination to solve newly introduced problems.

Kindest regards
