Expectation: convey the presence of the list attribute
Rationale: The user needs to know that the input will provide suggestions.
Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:
- Screen Readers: MUST
- Voice Control: NA
Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:
- might announce that suggestions are available when the input receives focus.
- might announce that the input has auto complete functionality.
- might modify the role of the associated input to convey datalist functionality, such as changing "edit text" to "Combo box".
