Interactive control elements must not have focusable descendants.
Add accessibility insights for web extension for edge Anaheim(Dev) browser from https://accessibilityinsights.io/

  1. open the given URL using valid credentials.
  2. Navigate to 'Reply' button and invoke it.
  3. Navigate to 'Insert image' button and invoke it.
  4. Now Run the fast pass using Accessibility Insights for web and observe the failure 'Nested- interactive'.

Actual results:

Nested interactive controls are not announced by screen readers

Expected results:

Interactive control elements have focusable descendants.


User Impact:

When interactive elements have an incorrect name and role, it is difficult for people using assistive technology (like screen readers) to understand the purpose of control and its relationship to other content. Knowing the role for a control helps users know what will happen when that object has focus and is selected, as well as what keyboard shortcuts to use when interacting with the control.

We will also log a task to improve the demo accessibility.
