Settings slider controls always report "unchecked" from Mac OS VoiceOver

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian sandbox vault from the Help menu
  2. Insure Voiceover is on (CMD-F5)
  3. Navigate to Settings (CMD-,)
  4. Navigate up and down the list of Editor settings sliders (tab or shift-tab).
  5. Notice that all sliders report “unchecked” when the cursor navigates to them, irrespective of actual state.

Actual result

Heard “unchecked” for every slider control I navigated to.
