Hi All,

I am testing a mobile app which has social media and other image links (about 8 links) towards the end of the screen.
These items are in layed out in one line and has a horizontal scroll.

When the page loads for the first time, this slightly animates to let the users know that there are more items that can be scrolled to.
The last visible item on-screen is chopped, which is another way to tell the users that there are more items and that they can scroll.

Visually I don't see a problem. However I noticed that when I choose to read from top option, TalkBack reads only the visible items on screen. When I swipe from left to right one element after another, all the hidden items receive focus.

Is this a TalkBack limitation. How can we let screen reader users know that there are more items to the right and they need to scroll to access?

Thanks in advance.
