Description Ramya Sri Narasinga 2017-01-28 07:17:04 UTC
Testing Environment:
OS: OSX (Version: 10.11.6)
Xamarin-Profiler: 1.0.4 

1. Install Xamarin Studio.
2. Launch Xamarin Studio.
3. Navigate to top menu bar of the Xamarin studio> File> New Solution> Press ENTER
("Choose a template for your new project" wizard is opened)
4.  Navigate to App under Multiplatform> Forms app under Xamarin.Forms
5. Navigate to Next button> Press ENTER
('Configure your Form app' wizard is opened.)
6. Fill the App name, check all the target platform-check box, select use portable class library radio button, use XAML for user interface files.
7. Navigate to Next button> Press ENTER
(Configure your new project" wizard is opened)
8. Navigate to Create> Press ENTER.
(New project is created)
9. Turn VoiceOver ON using Commond + F5.

Repro Steps:
"1. Run Pre-requisite
2. Navigate to Top menu bar of ""Xamarin Studio"" > Run> Start Profiling, then Press ENTER to launch Xamarin Profiler.
 (Xamarine Profiler is launched.)
3. Navigate to ""General"" Button (LHS) using CAPS+RIGHT ARROW.
4. Using CAPS+RIGHT ARROW, VoiceOver user could navigate each and every elements of the current window.

Actual result:
"The VoiceOver is not able to differentiate between the currently opened and non-opened tab button.
Example: Out of General and Advanced tab button, if General button is opened currently, then VoiceOver should intimate about this.
Note: The VoiceOver should announce as ""Selected"" for opened tab button(ie. General button)"

Expected result:
The VoiceOver should announce in such a way that Voiceover user could understand, which tab button is opened and which is not.

User impact:
The Screen Reader user won't able to understand the contents belongs to which Tab button(General/Advanced).
