Bryan, do you think that is because the ARIA role is superseding (and suppressing) the native OL/LI role?

I was referring to Voiceover feedback in iOS devices, but adding these attributes to a standard list element doesn't appear to work properly in JAWS and IE for instance.

E.G


<ol>
<li>
Apple
</li>
<li>
Orange
</li>
<li>
Banana
</li>
</ol>

<ol role="list">
<li role="listitem" aria-setsize="3" aria-posinset="1"> Apple </li> <li role="listitem" aria-setsize="3" aria-posinset="2"> Orange </li> <li role="listitem" aria-setsize="3" aria-posinset="3"> Banana </li> </ol>

If you try this, JAWS announces the numbers correctly on the standard OL tag, but not on the ARIA marked up tag.
