Bryan, that is a fantastic gesture to learn!  Works great for gesture interaction.  Is there a corresponding bluetooth wireless keyboard key combination to interact with the slider? 
The only thing I can find is to "select" the slider bar brings up a popup button to set the value. 

Also, any idea why on this demo when I navigate to the "time" slider, the page resets and the focus goes to the top of page?

This would be the page at 
http://whatsock.com/modules/aria_slider_module/demo.htm 
  
Voiceover incorrectly says that you should swipe up and down with one finger to adjust the slider, but David gave the correct sequence earlier, which is to double tap and hold with one finger, wait for the pass-through sound, then slide your finger in the direction you want to drag the slider.

I couldn't get anything to 'slide' in iOS, with or without VoiceOver, I just used the buttons. 

Perhaps we're talking at cross-purposes, which page do you mean?

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.
