Current behavior:

  1. Various controls in the reporter with icons and labels on mouse hover don't expose alternative labels for screen readers:
    • Test controls: resume/restart, selector playground. These just get read as "button"
    • Statistics list: statistics like the actual no. of tests passed can be read, but the label is purely iconic.
  2. Runnables list doesn't expose whether the node is expanded or collapsed programatically.

Desired behavior:

Exposing this information for screen readers

Steps to reproduce: (app code and test code)

  1. Launch a screen reader, such as NVDA.
  2. Start the driver, and run any test suite to launch the reporter.

The code for this is done in cypress-io/cypress#3851, but has yet to be released.
We'll update this issue and reference the changelog when it's released.
