           Summary: Cannot read multiple select with VoiceOver
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://benjaminhawkeslewis.com/www/test-cases/multiple-
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Accessibility
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: bhawkeslewis at googlemail.com

Moving around with the VoiceOver cursor (Control-Option-Right and
Control-Option-Down) multiple select controls are simply skipped. If you tab to
the control, VoiceOver say "HTML Content", but you cannot interact with the
select control as a group (Control-Option-Shift-Down). If you press the arrow
keys to move between the different options or press keys to select items,
nothing is read. This is a problem in WebKit Nightly on Tiger and is a
regression from Safari 2, which treated multiple selects as a sort of table. I
cannot personally verify it, but it also a big problem in Safari 3.0.4 on
Leopard. See the "Massive form oversight multi-select list boxes" thread on the
MacVisionaries mailing list:


There appears to be no workaround for this.
