Type: Bug Report
Aria label is not defined for 'format list'.
  1. open answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/ using valid credentials.
  2. Navigate to any article link and hit enter.
  3. Select 'reply' button.
  4. Navigate to 'format' list and invoke it.
  5. Now Run the fast pass using Accessibility Insights for web and observe the failure 'aria input field name'.

Actual Result:
Aria input field doesn’t have an accessible name.

Control type is defined incorrectly as list item for combo box for 'format' combo box.

Expected Result:
Ensure every aria input field should have an accessible name.
Control type should be defined as combo box.

User Impact:
ARIA widget roles require additional attributes that describe the state of the widget. If a required attribute is not provided, the state of the widget will not be communicated to screen reader users.

Until this is resolved, this article can be used to make a custom format tool and add the missing attribute:
