It's been months since the release of Safari v14, yet the many accessibility issues it introduced continue to go unaddressed in update after update.
VO+A doesn't reliably read a website. It fails if it encounters a paragraph with a link in the middle. It reads the first chunk of normal text, then the link, then it jumps back to re-read the first chunk of normal text, followed by the link again. If I'm lucky, it finishes with the concluding section of normal text, but more often it skips that entirely and proceeds to the following paragraph.
A recent update to the nytimes.com website rendered some links inaccessible with Safari and VoiceOver. The same links worked visually with VoiceOver disabled, and also worked with VoiceOver enabled and Google Chrome. I reported this to Apple's accessibility team, but they directed me to file all WebKit issues with the complicated WebKit bug tracker. Apparently, even Apple's own accessibility team has thrown up their hands regarding these innumerable issues.
I don't see a lot of discussion on AppleVis about this. Have we all moved off Safari? Am I the last holdout? Wait up, folks, I'm switching to Google Chrome soon.
