Detailed support results by expectation

Expectation for the group role: convey a role or boundaries if it is not named

This expectation is from the group role feature.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST NOT
  • Voice Control: NA

Grading method:

Just one of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

Notes:

This expectation describes the observed consistency between different screen readers. There are no standards that describe this behavior. When a group is not named but is used in certain contexts, browsers use the group role to inform the automatic generation of property values such as posinset and setsize. However, screen readers do not expose a name, role, or boundaries for the element with the group role.
