When describing known issues, be sure to note the version of OS, browser and AT where the issue can be reproduced. It is not necessary for the original reporter to determine if the issue affects other versions of OS/Browser/AT, but notes can be added by others if the issue is found in other versions. Also, notes should be added if it is observed that the issue is not present in another version of OS/Browser/AT.

Windows and ...

JAWS

  • In IE 11, with JAWS version 18.0.2118 and 18.0.2324, when a user tabs to a link element, aria-expanded value as collapsed or expanded is not announced. However, navigating in virtual cursor announces the aria-expanded value. Please note, this works fine in JAWS 17.0.
  • JAWS 16 had some problems announcing ARIA live region updates, problems that did not occur in v.15 and that were generally fixed in v.17.

Firefox

  • Firefox versions 43 through 46 had a severe problem that prevented TalkBack users from being able to activate links. For much of 2016 until v.47 fixed the problem, we deliberately downgraded Firefox to v.42 to avoid this problem.
  • Firefox reports HTML and ARIA checkboxes as buttons
