This message is for those who have used VoiceOver on an Intel Mac and have moved to an M1-based MacBook Air, Pro or a Mac mini.
I'm looking for an honest evaluation of how VoiceOver performs under conditions where it is working with tons of UI views on screen. For example, multiple playlists in Music, very large arrays in Numbers, audio editing programs with lots of tracks, web pages with lots and lots of Java Script.
Does the M1 processor make a significant difference? I'm coming from a Core i5 running at 2.3 GHz with 8 GB of RAM on an Intel MacBook Pro. I'd describe VoiceOver performance with these complex UIs as slow.
I'm looking at upgrading to a MacBook Pro running the M1 Pro or M1 Max and want to know whether we are talking a difference measured in orders of magnitude or a scale that's more linear.
