FontSizeComboBox and FontFamilyComboBox issue

Ribbon for WPF Forum

While trying to make our application accessibility compliant I've run into a problem with these controls in that when used with a screen reader they do not report changes in value as you key down and up through the choices.  So a screen reader will only voice the initial value when the control receives focus (if there is one) and then when you arrow down to choose a new value it does not voice that change.

Hi Austin,

Those controls are native ComboBox controls with a custom template.  But per this post that we found, it seems like all native WPF ComboBoxes that are editable suffer from this issue.

Alright, can't be helped then.  Thanks for the reply!

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
