<audio> range input incorrectly exposed in acc layer

Project Member Reported by, Aug 18 2017 Back to list

Issue description

Chrome Version: 60.0.3112.101
OS: (e.g. Win10)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
(1) go to
(2) Check the range input for volume using an object inspection tool

What is the expected result?
exposed as role= slider in MSAA/Ia2

What happens instead?
exposed as role=client in MSAA/Ia2

Note also the current accessible name "media control" is not useful in explaining the controls function; it controls the volume.
Status: Available
Chrome 63.0.3208.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit) (cohort: 64-Bit)
Windows 10 Enterprise Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393


I am able to reproduce this using this Chrome Accessibility Experiment to inspect the elements in Chrome canary:

The element is shown as "Unknown" in Windows, aka "client".

same issue in <video> element controls
Labels: win-a11y
The user impact here is that the volume on a media player is not recognized properly by the screen reader because it is not treated as a slider.
