Is It Possible to Review and Edit an Input Field On a Fire TV Device?

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>

I have a question regarding entering text in an input field using a Fire TV device and the VoiceView screen reader. I am able to navigate the keyboard to actually enter text, such as in the search input field. However, once text has been entered I can't seem to find a way of navigating through the text in order to edit what was entered. I am aware of the review mode but I don't think that this mode allows for editing. And, yes, I am aware of the voice search capabilities and I acknowledge that searching by voice is far more efficient. However, this was something I was asked about by a third party regarding a project they are working on and so I wanted to do some research for this individual.

When entering text using an Apple TV does the OS allow for editing text which has been entered in native apps?

Many thanks.
