Accessibility tree calculates the HTML5 section element as region.
Edge: Version 86.0.622.43 (Official build) (64-bit)
Go to the codepen example at : https://codepen.io/Shirisha1/pen/VwjwWBx
Open the developer tools.
Inspect the code.
Open the accessibility tree and view the <section> element that has no accessible name or role as region.
Accessibility tree doesn't calculate it as role=region.,
Actual: Accessibility tree shows it as role= region.
As per https://html.spec.whatwg.org/#the-section-element,
As per https://www.w3.org/TR/html-aria/, and https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.2/#arialhregion it should not be treated as region landmark.
