For lack of posting this twice, it's in the Mac section for now. I am running Mountain Lion on a 2011 Air, and sometimes when I wake the computer up, VO doesn't respond. No speech, no VO-specific sounds. Turning VO on and off again accomplishes nothing, as does muting and unmuting. I'm thinking this may have something to do with the Power Nap feature? The only workaround I've found is to restart the computer completely. Luckily with a fast SSD this doesn't take long, but it is a bit annoying as I never know when this bug is going to show up and it is disconcerting to have the speech totally go away. Anyone else having this issue?
My problem on iOS is exactly the opposite. When do not disturb is enabled, my phone doesn't vibrate, but VO will still read my texts, which kind of defeats the point if my phone is next to me. If I flip the mute switch it will shut up, but it's really weird. Better consistency here with 6.0. I just want to get some feedback before I submit something to Apple.
