Handling ARIA 1.1 Combobox is broken in Chrome and Firefox #9616
ARIA 1.0 combobox role should be applied to
NVDA seems to handle ARIA 1.0 comboboxes ok. But handling ARIA 1.1 comboboxes is broken:
The reference example: https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/examples/combobox/aria1.1pattern/listbox-combo.html.
Installed NVDA 2019.1.1, Windows 10.
I am currently reproing it in Chrome Version 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit) and in Firefox 67.0 (64-bit).
The only thing that seems broken about the 1.1 combobox in Firefox is that it never announces "combobox" when textbox gains focus. Try the official w3c examples here:
They seem to work well in Firefox with the above noted exception.
No. I have just specifically upgraded Firefox to 67.0.4 and retested. The combobox is skipped in the browse mode, the focus/browse mode switching doesn't work when the input of the combobox has focus, next combobox shortcut (C) says «no next combobox».
