6. VoiceOver is not annouuncing plus-minus sign of track scale change

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 Command + 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).
4. Navigate to ""All instruments"" , press ENTER to start profiling.
5. Press CAPS+RIGHT/LEFT ARROW keys to navigate the Minus and Plus sign of ""Instrument List"", to change the track scale.

Actual result:
"For the Minus and plus sign button, VoiceOver is announcing as ""button"", without any name description (ie. Minus button and Plus button)

These are non-interactive text content , so these could not be accessible using keyboard, but these are accessible using VoiceOver focus only."

Expected result:
The VoiceOver should announce as "Minus/Plus" button for Minus/Plus sign button for track scale change, of "Instrument List".

User impact:
The Screen Reader user won't able to understand the name of the button for "Minus/Plus" track scale button, of "Instrument List".
