      Description

      hello.

       

      i was exploring qt widgets accessibility state with properties enabled and discovered that:

      if using QComboBox widget with setEditable(true) for screenreaders combobox is not fully editable.

      actual result:

      when navigating through control with left/right arrow keys, screenreader should announce letter under cursor and backspace should announce deleted letter.

      actual result:

      after setting editable property to true, combobox becomes editable, i can enter a value in it but for screenreader it is not an editable combobox, nothing is beeing read on left/right arrow key press and i don't know what i am deleting on backspace press.

       

      tested on windows 10, NVDA 2019.3, macos 10.15.4 with voice over, ubuntu 20.04 with latest orca.

      in all this operating systems issue presents.
