Re: SV: Firefox accessibility on Mac devices


Hi Michael, Mattias,

the basic support should be enabled as soon as VoiceOver starts, or if it
is already running when Firefox is launched. Note that there may be an
issue with the initial import wizard not being accessible. After that is
done, some basic, but badly performant, accessibility is there. We're sorry
about this, but lack of resources is causing us to not be as far with
accessibility on the Mac as we would.

So the recommendation, for now, is to use one of the two alternative
browsers Safari or Chrome on OS X with VoiceOver.
