Autocomplete: default functionality does not announce the suggestions correctly
|Reported by:||dylanb||Owned by:|
Using the demo of the default autocomplete widget, the default functionality does not make its announcements correctly.
The problem with the implementation is the fact that the input field is being updated as the suggestions are traversed and the AT is trying to announce these updates. In addition, there is no attempt being made to get the currently "highlighted" suggestion to announce correctly.
A better solution would be to not update the input field until the user has made a choice and user aria-live to announce the selections as the user traverses through them.
