VoiceOver skipping lines

VoiceOver on macOS has a flaw - when there is too much incoming text, it will skip to the latest line without reading all others out in full. There is no way around this, and this issue does not apply to iOS where VoiceOver does have the functionality to queue up text.

As a remedy, Mudlet offers an option to disable reading out incoming text with VoiceOver - go to preferences, Special Options, and disable 'Announce incoming text in screen reader', which is on by default.

You can then install a 3rd party package such as the mudlet-reader which will use TTS to announce incoming text without running into the queueing issues.
