Jaws does not recognise the aria-current attribute in Edge.

Expected result

Jaws should announce "current" when (actual or virtual) focus moves to an element with the aria-current attribute. where one of the tokens has been used (page, date, time, location, step), Jaws should append the token to the announcement.

Actual result

Jaws does not announce current (with or without a token value).


Additional Information

JAWS version and build number

Jaws 2018.1801.81
