Hi David,

Sorry, I thought my terminology was off, I did mean the rotor. One of the
options in the rotor is "value", at least when you are focused on the
slider. However, it still didn't enable the up/down gestures to work, even
though VoiceOver says that should work.

It wasn't *my* implementation, the page is from the Open Ajax Alliance
accessibility examples, and it works great with desktop VoiceOver, and
keyboard only. (I assume it works fine with Windows screen readers as well,
but I haven't tried.)

Pass through may not work on that example, but that shouldn't be the
primary method of using a slider, it should work with the stated gestures.

That's why I think it's an iOS-VoiceOver bug, and a very difficult one to
work around.
