Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150511103303

Steps to reproduce:

Try to help enable screen reader


Actual results:

Right now, because it cannot easily be turned off again, it first needs to be enabled in
Developer settings (close to the bottom of a long page) to show up in the Acccessibility menu.

Then it has to be enabled there, towards the end of the main settings page.



Expected results:

Rumor has it this feature is easily enabled in iOS.

You just press home button 3 times quickly.
It's actually already possible in recent versions of Firefox OS (Starting from 2.0).

To enable screen reader, press volume up then volume down buttons 6 times.
Same to turn it off.
