JAWS reads last dropdown label though focus on previous dropdown



JAWS reads the last dropdown label even when the focus is on a previous dropdown.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Add more than one dropdown and configure them such that they refer the same property (such as, Type) in different page contexts.

Root Cause

The system does not generate unique IDs for dropdowns. Dropdowns refering the same property in different contexts, receive the same 'for=' attribute. Hence, JAWS reads the dropdown labels incorrectly.


An enhancement request, FDBK-25550, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
