I would like to share a finding about a bug which has been introduced in macOS 10.15 Catalina and which occurs in TextEdit. I've already reported the issue to email@example.com but would like to bring the issue to awareness also here at AppleVis so that we can gather more support in resolving the issue.
Steps to reproduce the issue:
- Turn on VoiceOver.
- Using Finder, open an existing plain text file in Text Edit and move the VoiceOver cursor to the document edit field. (The issue does not occur in rich text files.)
- Use the arrow keys to navigate the text cursor inside the document edit field.
You should hear voiceOver reading the text as you move the text cursor in the field.
What happens instead:
No VoiceOver feedback.
Workaround to repair the issue:
Turning VoiceOver off and on again. The reading of the edit field then becomes accessible as it should be.
