      Description

      Repro

      • Build the "Menus Example" (widget-based)
      • Run on Windows-10 with Narrator or NVDA screen reader
      • Alt+E (brings up edit menu), F (brings up format submenu)
      • Navigate to checked item with arrow keys (Left Align)
      • Read as "Left Align Ctrl+L" (NVDA) or "Left Align, Menu item, Menu Key Ctrl+L" (Narrator)
      • Nothing is said to indicate that the item is "checked"

      Other Data

      • Compare with notepad.exe, View/Status Bar which will read "Status Bar Checked S" with NVDA or "Status Bar Menuitem Checked Menu Key S" with Narrator. The word "checked" provides hint.
      • On macOS, this "Menu Example" works correctly with VoiceOver, it will add "checkmark" when it reads menu items that are checked.
      • Didn't try Linux.
      • Also see this problem with Qt Creator on Windows (the Qt Creator program menus).
