Thank you very much.  This is great and in retrospect I should have found this! 

The default on iOS is to essentially scroll one page down.  However this is often by row and you will get one overlapping row if it is a table view.   For example the first page will show Rows 1-10, while one scroll down gesture (3 finger swipe up) will show rows 9-19 (and it will announce this as well “Rows nine to nineteen of forty four”).   Will check what happens on Android.
