I think the problem here is that for text controls, the AXValue comes from the AccessibilityNodeObject::text() (we call downcast<HTMLTextFormControlElement>(*node).value() or downcast<Element>(node)->innerText()).
This value can be different from what textIterator gives us. In this case it will contain two newline characters instead of one visually.
So when we try to get the range of text we should match that with the entire element value.
