            Bug ID: 261249
           Summary: AX: iOS VoiceOver reads a wrong 'Checkbox' role
                    information when focusing on a radio button.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 17
          Hardware: All
                OS: Other
            Status: NEW

= Steps for reproducing =
1. Please turn on VoiceOver and then Open the next link: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/input/radio 
2. Move VoiceOver Focus to any radio button in the "Try It" Section.
3. Listen carefully to which element state and role information VoiceOver says.

= current behavior =
VoiceOver reads "Huey, Checkbox, Radio Button, Checked".

= expected behavior =
VoiceOVer must not read an additional wrong role 'Checkbox' when focusing a radio button.

Radio buttons are a checkable element like checkboxes. but, a radio button is not exactly the same as a checkbox. these just shared the same or similar concepts. When a screen reader user encounters a checkbox, they expect that they can select multiple. On the other hand, when they meet radio buttons, they expect that they can select only one of two or more items. It makes users confused.
