Grid pagination buttons should have button role.


If screen reader is not announcing the role as button for Grid pagination controls then users will confuse and not able to utilize the control properly.

Environment (OS, Application):

Test Environment:

OS version (OS Build 22000.856) 
Microsoft Edge : Version 105.0.1343.25 (Official build) (64-bit)

AT (include version number):


Repro Steps:

1. Open given URL in Microsoft Edge .

2. "pageable - API Reference - Kendo UI Grid | Kendo UI for jQuery" page will open.

3. Turn on Narrator.

4. Navigate to the Grid pagination buttons using keyboard.

5. Verify that screen reader is announcing role as button or not.

Actual Results:

The pagination buttons at the bottom of grids have their role defined as link.

Expected Results:

The pagination buttons at the bottom of grids should have their role defined as a button, not link.

Additional notes:

This issue is present on any page grid pagination is used, so should address it globally

In order for all accessibility features of the Grid to be enabled, you need to set the navigatable property of the widget to true.

You can test all of the pager buttons in the Keyboard Navigation demo to verify that they have the correct role:
