Is this a regression? This sounds like it's not specific to captive portal and would apply to all notification bars.

I don't think this is a regression, I encounter the same problem with the out of date notification bar, but the captive portal notification bar has some improvements comparing with out of date: the close button is working and also the "Show login page" is also working. When I say working I am referring to the fact that the text from this two is read with Voice Over.

Removing unnecessary access keyword, since the bug is already in the Disability Access component and it would need to be triaged to set its severity

Severity: S3 → --

It looks like since this bug was reported the issue was resolved. While I do not have access to the Captive Portal to confirm that, the update dialog that was mentioned in comments as experiencing similar issues, is now being accessible with VoiceOver on macOS Sonoma 14.2.1 - tested with yesterday's Nightly 123.0a1 that sent a prompt to update. Screenshot of the announcement is attached.

I'll close this bug as WFM, but if the issue still exist, please do reopen it and, hopefully, we can get working STRs to debug.
