Until recently, if I used the VoiceOver Find command VO+F to search for text that was not present, I would get an audible "thunk" sound indicating the search had failed. But in current Mac OS, all I get is an announcement of the alphanumeric last letter of the search.
Here's an example.
1. If VoiceOver's not on, enable it with VO+F5.
2. Open Safari. Open any app, really it doesn't matter.
3. Press VO+F.
4. In the find dialog, enter text that doesn't exist, such as "clown robot", then press Enter.
I would expect to hear the "thunk" sound. Instead, VoiceOver says "tango", the alphanumeric code for the final letter T.
5. Press VO+G to repeat the search.
Again I would expect the "thunk" sound, but this time there is no audible feedback whatsoever.
I've reported this to email@example.com but haven't heard back yet. I'm on a 2019 Mac Mini running OS v12.2.1.
Is anyone else seeing this behavior?
