Description

The button used to clear the Safari address bar is labelled “Close” rather than “Clear Text”

Steps to reproduce

  1. Ensure that VoiceOver is enabled.
  2. Open Safari.
  3. Place VoiceOver focus on to the name of the current website in the toolbar.
  4. Double tap with 1 finger.
  5. Place VoiceOver focus in to the address field.
  6. Swipe right with 1-finger twice.

You should find that VoiceOver focus moves to a button with the label “Close”.

If you double tap with 1-finger on this button, its function is to clear all text from the address bar field.

Accordingly, you would expect its VoiceOver label to be “Clear text”.
