Description Hyongsop Kim 2020-11-08 17:44:54 PST

My name is Hyongsop Kim from Korea and VoiceOver user.

I want to report VoiceOver bug regarding aria-current attribute with script.

The aria-current property is a property that tells the screen reader which of the element is selected. 

By the way, once I doubletap A object and A object has aria-current set to true with DOM not refreshed, VoiceOvdr can't catch changed aria-current attribute.

You can test this issue with the sample page.

And also I attached the demonstration bug reporting video for your understanding.

Regarding this issue, please watch the video and fix the issue.

Thank you.

The fix for this issue was needed outside the WebKit project, therefore this is being resolved as 'Moved'.

This should now be fixed in shipping software.
