Wikidata statement input field suggestions are not accessible via JAWS screen reader
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Adding a value for a Wikidata statement is very hard for JAWS users, because the suggestions that pop down when you start typing in the value input are not accessible. There's no announcement that there are suggestions available, and the suggestions are don't get focus via tab.

Together, a JAWS user and I were not able to find a way to read the suggestions at all, so the only way to input a value was to look up the Q number via search, type that in the input, and then hit enter.
