hreflang underestimated?

SR seem to ignore the html attribute *hreflang*. (Tested JAWS and NVDA)

hreflang gives a hint to the language of the resource in a link.


IMO this hint would be small and fine for SR too:

* Get immediate info, not frustration after clicking. (--> link
* Get globally the same info, not depending on work arounds.

Vendors feedback was: Too noisy and not for AT but for SEO .

What do UAAG require from AT? Support each html attribute?

What do you think about the relevance for users?
