Description

"VoiceOver" does not read options when list of options is visible in Safari.

Seems that select menu needs to have different "role" attribute. Currently it is a "combobox" role but it's not always appropriate. It is only appropriate when we style some input fields that have dropdown list. Example: https://webkit.org/blog-files/aria1.0/combobox_with_live_region_status.html

However if we style regular "select" we need to have the role "listbox". I used the following workaround for the issue :

  1. Change role to "listbox"
  2. Added appropriate aria-selected attribute (aria-selected="true/false") to each option and triggered its value when focus moves to another option.
  3. In addition all other aria attributes should be changed to match the "listbox" role
