            Bug ID: 196354
           Summary: AX: Role=switch is communicated as a "checkbox"
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 12
          Hardware: iPhone / iPad
                OS: iOS 12
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Accessibility
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

As a follow up to bug 194006, I'm very happy to see that role=switch is now communicating state.  

However, this issue is to draw attention to the fact that role="switch" should be announced as a "switch" with an "on" or "off" state, rather than the present role announcement of "checkbox" and state of "checked" or "unchecked".

Making this change would match the implementation / announcements of macOS Safari + VO.

The following link provides additional testing information and Switch demos.
