On selecting a message containing multiple links or other interactive items in VoiceOver, how do I activate any after the default first item?
Suppose an iPhone VoiceOver user receives a SMS message like this one:
Hello! Your order number 12345 is ready, you can check status on our website or app here https://app.example.com/orders/12345
With VoiceOver on, the number
12345 is treated as an interactive item, so most gestures I try on such a message select the number, not the link.
If I open the message's context menu, or swipe down to "Actions – default", or if I do any of the things described in this Apple forum thread "How do I open links on accessibility voiceover?", it only activates the number and gives me the option to copy the number to the clipboard. How can a VoiceOver user reach a link that isn't the first interactive item in the message?
