Last week I took the oportunity to work on one of the accessibility
issues with code entry screen:
Here is what I found:
Empty static text like <span></span> is not read by VoiceOver even given
a tabindex and a aria-label attribute. The case is that this element
needs a relevant ARIA role. However it seems that no suitable role is
supported for static text. I found a table of supported ARIA roles in
Safari that is somewhat outdated (from March last year):
I couldn't find a newer support table. Can someone help with this?
Also when the static text is updated it retains its previous value
(blank, not read by VoiceOver) as it is described here:
This prevents the code from being read once it is entered.
I hope that somebody has some insight on how to correct these issues.
