WCAG: Screen Reader on Breadcrumbs

In Pega version 7.2.1 we have enabled the accessbility framework PegaWAI:07-10.

Currently, the progress bar has three steps. Any step that has not yet been complete or is not the current step, is inactive (visually) on screen.

When encountered using a screen reader(Jaws), the current step is announced as an active link and the others (yet to come) are read as text only e.g. reads 'link step 1 [name of screen]' then 'step two [name of screen] ' and 'step three [name of screen]’.

As this is the only method of conveying where the user is in the process, it would be confusing to a non-sighted user.

Therefore, the screen reader should read 'Current' (or similar) when announcing the step, you are on, and then 'Incomplete' along with the steps yet to be performed.
Example -
reads 'link step 1 of 3 - [name of screen] (current)' then 'step two of three - [name of screen] (incomplete)' and 'step three of three - [name of screen] (incomplete)'.
