Topic: Checkboxes Inaccessible and Unusable to Screen Readers

First of, you are right - the reason for VoiceOver to be skipping over checkboxes (and probably dropdowns) is the styling. To apply Google's material design paradigm, right before the default
html elements get replaced by their interactive
visibility: hidden; CSS property). This implies that few of our form elements in their current form remain inaccessible to screen readers.
Unfortunately, there has been no new development regarding enhancing readability of these in the last two months and I am in no position to make promises about the time by which we might offer a complementary solution to this issue. To keep the content available to everyone, for the time being it seems best to fall back onto bootstrap in these few instances where we failed to comply with accessibility standards.
I, personally, am very sorry.
With Best Regards,
