Something interesting I just found by accident: I just paired my Mac with a braille display, and I was using an iOS app. Right now, iOS and catalyst apps feel noticeably slower with VO, but I noticed that the text in braille was changing immediately in time with the wrap forward sound effect, and speech was taking a moment to start. This got me thinking, what would happen if I turned the sounds off? Well as it turns out that made a rather noticeable improvement in speech responsiveness in iOS and Catalyst apps, more so with some than others, but for the most part speed wise they feel pretty much as fast as a native Mac app with the sounds muted.
