ToolBar: Narrator stopped working with Windows 10 (version 1607)
Narrator is not working properly with Windows 10 (Anniversary Update 1607) and Windows 7 when used on RadToolBar. It only reads the first element.

Hello Kathleen, I tried the workaround MS provided but to no avail on my side. Did you try it and if yes, could you share whether it worked?

I got this input from @windowdev, I have yet to try it yet but I also explained to them that this issue is persistent throughout the application not just with the 1 example provided here.

We'd like to thank you once again for bringing this to our attention. We've found something that our engineering team is investigating further. We will get back to you once we have more solid information or a definitive workaround is available.

For now, as a potential workaround, try to make sure that all the UIElements have an x:Name. For example:

<StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
<!-- Make sure you've got an x:Name property set to force the narrator to read it -->
     <Button x:Name="Button1" 
             Content="I am button one"
             Margin="6" />
     <Button x:Name="Button2"
             Content="I am button two"
             Margin="6" />

This is a significant issue for those of us who need to be 508 Compliant.
