      Description

      Build the "WebEngine Widgets Simple Browser Example" on macOS. Run it, and load a page with good accessibility support such as bbc.com.

      Turn on VoiceOver, and with keyboard focus in the web page, use tab key and/or VoiceOver commands (VO+Arrow keys) to move around.

      The cursor will move, but nothing is spoken by VoiceOver.

      Contrast with same example running on Windows with NVDA or Narrator, where each selected element will be read (e.g. "Link: News"), or with pages loaded into Chrome or Chromium browsers on macOS with VoiceOver.
