Work object tabs do not have correct title



Close icon on work object tabs does not have the correct title when used with JAWS.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Deploy PegaWAI.
  2. On the Case Manager portal, open a couple of work objects.
  3. Enable the JAWS screen reader.
  4. Press 'Insert+CTRL+B' keys. JAWS popup window displays with all the buttons. Multiple 'Close this tab Button' options are displayed.

    For example, when the work object is APL-23, its title should display as 'APL-23 Close this tab'.

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.


An enhancement request, FDBK-26938, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.

Alternatively, as a local-change, add the below script to the UserWorkForm. <script> 


function  setCustomTabAriaLabels(){ 
var activeTab = top.$(".dc-header ul[role='tablist'] .selected"); 
if(activeTab.length == 0){ 
return false; 

activeTab = activeTab[0]; 
var closeIcon = activeTab.getElementsByClassName("iconCloseSmall")[0]; 
var ariaLab = closeIcon.getAttribute("aria-label"); 
closeIcon.setAttribute("aria-label", activeTab.title+":"+ ariaLab); 
var title = closeIcon.getAttribute("title"); 
closeIcon.setAttribute("title", activeTab.title +":"+ title);
