If you open the "List Demo" tab of SwingSet2 (the 7th tab from the left), and you navigate to the list containing "YoYoSystems", "MetaDynamics", etc: With VoiceOver on, VoiceOver will not "speak" selected items when changing the selection (with cursor up/down).
    When entering the list with Ctrl-Option-Shift-Down Arrow, VoiceOver sees only 26 out of 30 items, and does not scroll past the visible items.
Re noreg-other, manual test is as follows: <SQE> - make sure VoiceOver is set up as follows: - System Preferences, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Open VoiceOver Utility, Navigation - In Grouping behavior: Ignore groups - Keyboard focus follows VoiceOver cursor: checked - VoiceOver cursor follow keyboard focus: checked - start VoiceOver - start SwingSet2 - click the ListDemo toolbar button to select the ListDemo - press Tab 11 times until focus is on the list - press up/down arrow; should hear VO saying the newly selected items - when interacting with list should hear that there are 30 (total) items, not 26 (visible) items - should be able to shift extend items with shift + up arrow or shift + down arrow and VO should announce the item just added or removed - click the ListDemo toolbar button again - press control + option + right arrow 10 times to move focus to the text above the list box - press control + option + down arrow 1 time to move focus to the list - press shift + control + down arrow to interact with the list - when using control + option + down arrow should be able to move to and select (control + option + spacebar) non-visible items past the 26th visible item - should be able to multi-select both visible and invisible items using control + option + command + return and VO should read the item just added </SQE>

https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8076554 needs to be backported first to backport this one.

The not speaking list items is a duplicate of JDK-7124291. Will change the title and add a link.

It has been requested that this be backported to 8u after fixed in 9.

This was reported by Renaud Paquay <rpaquay@google.com> of the Google Android Studio team.
