Link boundaries don't work with Safari 11.0.1 when using VoiceOver #3373
Noticed while testing #3343
On Safari 11.0.1 and only when using VoiceOver, the boundaries don't work at all for me: no highlighting is displayed on both user names and links. No "link modal" appears.
They work on Safari Technology Preview – Release 43 (Safari 11.1, WebKit 12605.1.12).
I understand this is an edge case and tricky to investigate. However, boundaries works nicely in the Classic Editor so I'm wondering if there's any obvious, easy to spot difference (events or something) in the Gutenberg implementation that prevents them to work correctly.
Just noticed one more thing not working well when using Safari 11 + VoiceOver that maybe can help understand what's going on. To reproduce:
Move the caret at the end of a paragraph that ends with a link:
Press Cmd + A:
Even in this case, can't reproduce with Safari Technology Preview.
A few things have changed:
I've tested also the boundaries used on bold and italic text, they work correctly.
