  on iOS isn't paying attention to aria-hidden="true when included in a
button element

I would be concerned that aria-hidden is set on a button that is visible
on-screen.  I believe the intention of aria-hidden was to coincide with
visibility:hidden and display:none although it can be used without coupling
them with these CSS properties.    Ive seen some need for aria-hidden when
people have faded prior and next pages on the screen with the main content
in the center.  However, for actionable controls it could be problematic as
you could end up on the control by swiping perhaps like you would with tab
but then aria-hidden would be there causing dead space.

The issue is that I can't get Voiceover to grab the slide, then move it. If
there is a gesture sequence for this though, I definitely want to learn it.

The carousels are fine in Voiceover, I worked on these a while ago. For
some reason Voiceover on iOS isn't paying attention to aria-hidden="true"
when included within a button element. That's a bout it though.

What was the issue there? I tried the carousel and slidershow, they seemed
ok. Could adjust the ordering a little to make it easier to understand (and
don't rely on having an esc key), but it seemed ok.
