Narrator fails to announce Menu item position numbers

Testing Environment:
      •	Windows 10.
      •	Version 1067.
      •	Build 14393.607.
   Visual Studio and Xamarin:
      •	VS 2017 RC Enterprise.
      •	Xamarin For VS
      •	Xamarin Inspector 1.0

Pre-Requisites: Build and Deploy Xamarin Application into Android Emulator

Repro Steps:

   1.Launch Xamarin Inspector.
   2.Navigate through the menu items using Caps Lock + Arrow.
   3.Observe Narrator announcement for Menu items(File,Tools,View,Help).

Actual Result:

   Narrator is announcing Menu item Name and state but not announcing position (Announcing File menu item, tools menu item, view menu item, Help menu item).
Expected Result: 

   Narrator Should announce File menu item 1 of 4 collapsed/expanded for file.

User Impact:

   User who are visually impaired will not come to know how many menu items available and where the current focus is.

Do you have a document that discusses this? Using Narrator on a number of applications, including applications built into Windows, none of them announce the number of menu items, only the menu itself, exactly like Workbooks.

Hi Bojan,
If Screenreader doesn't announce the number of menu items, user will not be aware of number of navigations required to reach the desired menu item. Hence it would be more accessible to the user if position and size for the menu items are defined.
However if you feel that this bug can not be fixed, please resolve it as "Upstream" so that it will be assessed by Ryan as per C&E Management process.
