JAWS 17 bug?


From: Moore,Michael (Accessibility) (HHSC)

I have noticed on my system that JAWS 17.0.2417 appears to have a defect where when aria-labelledby points to more than one label only one label is read. For example aria-labelledby="labelID1 labelID2" will result in only labelID1 being read. This is the case for FF current release and for IE11.

Has anyone else noticed this issue or is this just a case of a unique property of my own installation or environment. I would like to get confirmation before I escalate the issue to Freedom Scientific.
