That's correct. This component does use role="slider", but it too has to have a mobile fallback for touch devices.

This component does work with both Talkback and VO by basically allowing the user to double tap the range input min/max buttons to manipulate the slider position. This is a great fallback for AT users on mobile.
That said, it is not a true slider (role=slider). Can we confirm that the role=slider is still not supported by VO/Talkback?
