Symptoms are confirmed, plus ARIA-valuenow has no effect with JAWS on FF/IE desktop.

ARIA attributes aria-valuemin, aria-valuemax, aria-valuenow and role="slider" have to be set on the handle. tabindex="0" has to be set as well in order to allow keyboard navigation.

On iOS, even with the correct aria attributes:

  • Voiceover wrongly states "swipe up or down with one finger to adjust the value". In fact users should double-tap-and-hold the handle to be able to slide the handle and change the value.
  • Voiceover doesn't speak the new value when aria-valuenow changes, but it does when the user tap on the handle.
