Is anyone else using the app with Apple screen reader voiceover? For soame time now-I can’t exactly say since when-voiceover no longer announces the share button and also no longer displays the section with original title, running time and so on. Last time I complained about an issue with voiceover, it was a mistake I made. So if someone else encountered this problem before it would be very helpful if they could tell me what they do to solve it. If other people are encountering the same issue right now, then maybe it isn’t my own incompetence at work. But before I bother the awesome staff of imdv again I want to be sure.

Hello, yesterday I figured out that the button for sharing as well as the section containing title, original title and so on are displayed for movies which don't have videos embedded on their title page. Projects in dauvelopment or the obscure German film i looked up than work fine, the video on the title page seems to be the problem in my case. Maybe that helps.Beate
