|input elements do not expose readonly state in acc layer as per HTML5 requirements|
|Project Member Reported by faulkner...@gmail.com, Jun 15 2014||Back to list|
Version: <35> OS: <windows 8.1> HTML5 requires that an input element with a readonly attribute is exposed in browsers with the platform dependent equivalent of aria-readonly=true. This maps to STATE_SYSTEM_READONLY in MSAA + IAccessible2 role . Currently the input element with a readonly attribute does not expose this state (unlike FF and IE) references HTML5 WAI-ARIA section http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/dom.html#sec-strong-native-semantics WAI-ARIA implementation guide property mapping table: http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-implementation/#mapping_state-property_table input element definition HTML5 http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/forms.html#the-input-element HTML5 readonly attribute definition http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/forms.html#attr-input-readonly What is the expected behavior? input element with a readonly attribute has an MSAA + IAccessible2 state of STATE_SYSTEM_READONLY Steps to reproduce open https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/377471/browser-tests/textinput-readonly.html check the MSAA+IA2 state of the input element using an object inspection tool (aViewer for example: http://www.paciellogroup.com/resources/aviewer)

Setting to available with label of Needs:Investigation since this should be looked at by a dev directly.
