JAWS does not announce number of autocomplete results



When typing into an autocomplete field and results are shown, JAWS screen reader does not announce the number of results returned.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

Use JAWS on an autocomplete input field.

Root Cause

This feature is working as designed.

JAWS will read out the options returned, but cannot count the number of results. One reason is this control loads in a progressive nature, and as user arrow downs through the options additional results can be returned.


This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.
