Occasionally, when you go back a page in Safari, the page you land on is unusable. This can take two forms:
- VoiceOver can navigate headings,if there are any, but they appear to be the headings of the page you just left, and the only thing you hear aside from headings is "text". For example, you might hear "heading level 3, text" and then "heading level 1, text". VO-arrows only land you on items that are spoken as "text".
- The page appears either blank or as described above, but VoiceOver's web navigation commands (vo-cmd-h, for example) don't work at all. In this case, the page appears not in an HTML Area like normal, but instead in a Scroll Area.
In either case, to fix this and get the page to be usable again, you must refresh the page.
