CSS transform is just styling. It does not affect the source of the text
so text-to-speech should not be affected.

Again, the CSS is just styling so should not affect the reading
order/sequence. The DOM is still the same order.

That doesn't mean vertical text is not hard to read but I'm not sure I see
a strict failure.
