Narrator is not conveying the password & Email fields as editable when focused in Microsoft Edge
Hey Microsoft, I would like to share my piece of feedback on an issue that is observed in Microsoft Edge while using Narrator.
On tabbing to password & Email edit fields i.e. which are marked as type=”password” and type=”email” in underlying HTML, I have observe Narrator is not announcing ‘edit’ instead only announces the label of the field.
For example, when ‘New password’ edit field receives the focus Narrator announces it as ‘New password’ or ‘New password end of line’ at times and this doesn’t convey users the field as editable. Same behavior is experienced with Email edit fields also.
This problem is seen only with Microsoft Edge but not experienced with IE, Chrome, Firefox browsers using Narrator.
I hope you guys will replicate the same behavior in Microsoft Edge soon where Narrator should convey the password & Email fields as editable by announcing ‘edit or editing’ along with the label.
Thanks for your feedback Venky, we have a few questions about your post. 1. What version of Windows are you using? 2. What specific links are you running into these problems with?
