it is broken in unity3d, but works in unity2d. It was working in 3d earlier in the year, not sure exactly when. I believe they have given up on accessibility for unity 3d now and are launching the 2d session by default for screen reader users.

I can confirm and (maybe) I know how we can fix with the next SRU. But I need to talk with Alan on IRC.

Could you test the candidate update, it will not be deployed as a stable update until the fixes are confirmed to work and that's one of the bugs that's remaining as verification-needed
