Known Issue: Accessibility -Select Picker Item behaviour in Iphone Voice over

The select html combo box behaviour in Iphone voice is causing problem with accessibility. It doesn't enable the focus on picker selection of IOS when we double tap to activate the picker control( Select Id= > Option in html.

Now this very well works out in IOS 8.0 and above. There is some defect in IOS 7.0 and higher version. Having said that , the focus and default behaviour of picker for voice over is still a problem.

1. Double tap does not set the focus on picker item values.
2. After picker item is selected focus never moves to next element.

Bottom line is:-

Combo box aka dropdown box( select Option) must be customised to suit requirement.

Do add Label for at least for select .
