Pass You are brought back to the correct place Amy's Experience: but when you have to reopen the iframe it brings you to the top of the page. So going to the extended description is fine since it is at the top of the new page. However, on returning back to the image in the book it is being read at the right place but once you try to open that iframe it jumps to the top. It might be a VO/Safari issue which focuses automatically at the top of the page. Charles: brought back to the correct location with Voice over Running, so not sure why Amy's required her to open back up the iframe.
