Description

[Screen Readers-Vendor Risk Assessment-Create a New Template]: Screen reader does not announce the role and the name for the 'Hint' control.

User who rely on screen reader may get confused for the missing announcement of the role and of the purpose of the controls available.

MAS Reference:
MAS 4.1.2 - Name, Role, Value

WCAG Reference Link:

Steps to Reproduce

1: Enable NVDA/JAWS
2: Navigate to /incident_list.do
3: Open any incident and navigate to the Priority field
4: Navigate to the Hint control.
5: Wait for the screen reader to announce the role and the name of the control.

The screen reader does not announces the role and the name for the 'Hint' control.

When navigating to 'Hint' control, NVDA announces "Read only Cannot be modified", only giving the tool tip information, instead of announcing "Read only Cannot be modified hint button".
