VoiceOver read all command with TabPane has issues


    • Type: Bug

      Use the keys Alt+Ctrl+Shift+W with VoiceOver running on a Mac to get it to read out the current dialog.

      When reading out a dialog with a TabPane in, the following issues are noted:

      - VO selects each tab in turn and reads out the tab name, and as each tab is selected, the tab is switched to.
      - Reads out the Close button of a tab even if it doesn't have one
      - Once all the tabs are read out, the contents of the tab pages are read out - starting with the first tab which is no longer selected.

      VoiceOver should read each of the tabs without selecting them, then read only the content of the selected tab.
