Description Ramya Sri Narasinga 2017-03-21 07:23:37 UTC
Testing Environment: 
macOS Sierra v 10.12.3
Xamarin v6.3 (Build 731)

Repro Steps:
1. Launch Xamarin Studio.
2. Turn ON Voiceover.
3. Hit VO+M to goto menu item.
4. Goto any menu item (Eg: File) and hit VO+Space.
5. Observe VO Behavior.

Issue also exists for all menu items and also its sub-menu items.

Expected Behavior:
Voiceover should announce the total list item present and the position of individual list item when navigated.

Actual Behavior:
Voiceover announces the total list item but doesn't announce the position of individual list item.

User Impact:
Users relying on Voiceover will not know the position of the list item and the remaining list items to navigate till the end.

This is VoiceOver's behaviour and not something we can do anything about.
Comment 2 Ramya Sri Narasinga 2017-10-07 05:56:17 UTC
Since this is VO behaviour closing this bug.
