Description chris fleizach 2015-06-17 09:32:46 PDT
Besides the WAI-ARIA landmark regions, developers can also create a generic role="region" and then assign it a aria-label. However, VO is not announcing the start of any generic regions.

Steps to Reproduce:
Go to http://wafflerama.com/a11y/landmarks.html
Ensure VoiceOver is running
Navigate through the page (right flick) until you reach the 6th line under the Landmarks with Labels heading

Expected Results:
VoiceOver should announce "test region" then the text inside the region.

Actual Results:
VoiceOver does not announce the region, but simply reads the text.
