Disclaimer: I work for Mozilla. And I would like to share the following announcement with the AppleVis community.
Firefox 85 Beta is here and with it our consumer preview of macOS VoiceOver support. Until recently it was completely unusable in Firefox but this year the Firefox accessibility team stepped up to fix that.
We started in February, with Firefox 75, and kept up the pace through the next ten releases. We implemented dozens of features and fixed hundreds of bugs. Now, with Firefox 85 Beta, we think our VoiceOver support is complete enough and fast enough that a full-time screen reader user could rely on it as their daily driver.
There are surely some bugs still lurking, and maybe even a missing feature or two. And that’s where you come in. We’re announcing this preview to gather feedback on what’s working well and what’s not working great. So, if you haven’t yet, download or update to Firefox 85 Beta and try it out with VoiceOver. If you find issues, please report them to Bugzilla or find us on Matrix and share your feedback there.
In addition, I will be monitoring the comments to this thread for feedback.
Thank you all for your continued inquiries into when Firefox would finally support VoiceOver! Your persistence was one of the factors that finally made this project possible.
