You're right. Not sure, why I thought they were using ARIA. Better
example:http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/dojox/form/DropDownSelect.html.
I'm trying to come up with an ARIA solution that will work today. Just
want to make sure users are OK with the disconnect. If I am using the
combobox role for the select menu it is notified as combobox, but in
Safari/VoiceOver the native select is notified as a menu. Have you or
anyone run into any issues with this? Thanks.
