Accessibility Enhancement – Animated Numbers

Requested by: Steve Quilala c/o Disability Resource Centre

Status: Rejected

Change to something that already exists?: Yes
Requires a new CMS Component?: No
Requires New Functionality?: No


Read/Write Chrome browser plugin reads numbers twice for Animated Numbers Component

– iOS Voiceover reading properly
– macOS Voiceover reading properly
– Kurzweil reading properly
– The code has proper markup. Read/Write appears to be reading span tag displayed on page, then the values in the code.

[Update: SQ checked Read/Write again late January 2020. Vendor has updated the software and it no longer reads our animated numbers components twice. Just reads it properly once. As suspected this is a bug on the vendor’s side not a problem with our component code. Marking complete + rejected. ]

Reason for Rejection:

This is a vendor specific bug. All other screen readers tested were reading this component properly. After checking again Jan 2020, vendor has fixed the bug in a recent update.
