Confirming lack of text to speech in alert dialogs.
Mass un-assigning bugs assigned to Aaron.
Do we have component for text-to-speech support since it appears right people aren't cc'ed here?
This is a platform integration bug rather than accessibility. It is about supporting the default speech alerting system in Mac OS X. Setting to Widget: Cocoa for now in hopes this can be triaged to platform integration.
I have observed this too. The alert for checking whether Firefox is the default or not isn't really spoken out loud. Taking it.

Setting component to what the fix actually is in: Disability Access APIs rather than Cocoa widgets.
