MacOs VoiceOver does not work with Firefox 70.0.1

Posted

MacOs 10.14.5 VoiceOver does not recognize websites in Firefox. Try any website including https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ and use MacOS VoiceOver. The content is not read by the screen reader at all. VoiceOver will only read the Firefox application window and nothing within it. VoiceOver is listed as available for Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/accessibility-features-firefox-make-firefox-and-we but not a single site is readable by VoiceOver.

Problems with screen readers not working properly can be caused by using multi-process in tabs and windows. This makes it more difficult for external software to access web page content in Firefox.

Do you have VoiceOver enabled in the Mac accessibility settings ?

Do you have accessibility features enabled in Firefox in case that makes a difference ?

Question owner

I've tested with no other tabs or processes running.

Yes VoiceOver is enabled. It works on Safari and Chrome. Accessibility services are enabled to work on Firefox. I've not turned it off.

What's very troubling is I've found out that this is a known bug over two years old. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1466342
