washington post "listen" mode (article is spoken on audio) no longer works

The Washington Post has a feature on some articles called "Listen", where the article is read aloud on the device audio. I often use this because my vision is not as good as it used to be, and I can listen while I perform other tasks (e.g., cook). There is an example at this URL: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/05/24/trump-picks-primaries-perdue-lose-dangerous/

Click "Listen" just above the first text of the article.

This is FF 100.0.2 on Windows 10 21H2 build 19044.1706

I do use the Malwarebytes add-on, but it doesn't work even when I disable it and the FF tracking protection is turned off.

It does work in both Edge and Chrome, with Malwarebytes enabled.

This is very disappointing ...

One thing you need to be subscribe to do anything on that site. So this is more or less not going to of help here for anyone unless one has a Subscription to verify what your asking.

Helpful?

@Dropa Thanks for the response. I understand, and I do pay for a subscription. But according to their web site: "All readers of The Washington Post website or apps have access to a limited number of articles every month". They don't say what that "limited number" is, but it used to 20 (as of Sept 2021) - it may have changed.

So I think if someone wanted to check it out, they could.

Helpful?
