Re: Carousels again

Hi All,

I just tested the issue Todd suggested at https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_section (Both with the code as is and adding an aria-labelledby attribute pointing to the h2s to the sections) with the latest version on TalkBack on a Pixel 2 running Android 10.

TalkBack did not read the entire contents of the <section> element so it appears that this issue has been fixed.

I filed a bug against chromium a while back where any sections with a tabindex (even tabindex="-1") would act like it was a named region and also read the whole content out as the region name.

The Talkback one I've heard of too but I don't keep up with whether they've fixed it.
