Narrator announces wrong item position

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.Change To View inspector View(Select using mouse).
   3.Navigate to the left pane which is having Layout options.
   4.Expand Frame Layout button and Navigate to Sub frame layout item(Linear layout).
   5.Observe the Narrator Announcement.

Actual Result:

   Narrator Announcing 'Linear layout' item as 2 of 2
Expected Result: 

   Narrator should not announce 1 of 1

User Impact:

   Users dependent on screen readers will get confused and will not be able to understand which is the 1st element.

Why do you think this should say 1 of 1?

This is a standard WPF list view control, there's no custom behavior here, and as your screenshot demonstrates, this is the second list view item of 2, and it is collapsed.

Can you point to a document explaining your logic?

Hi Bojan,

Since 'Linear Layout' is at level 2 , screenreader should announce as 1 of 1.
If both 'Frame layout' and 'Linear Layout' stand at same level then screenreader will announce as 'Linear Layout' 2 of 2 which is not the case here.
Let us know if you need any more info on the same.
