Steps to reproduce
What steps will reproduce the problem?
(1) open http://s.codepen.io/stevef/debug/jmWrxV/dXMqBbOKgnPr
(2) check the accessible name value for the 2 text inputs
What is the expected result?
the value of the placeholder and aria-placeholder is exposed via the aria-placeholder property
What happens instead?
the value of the placeholder and aria-placeholder is exposed via the acc name property
Please use labels and text to provide additional information.
mapping for placeholder - https://w3c.github.io/html-aam/#att-placeholder
placeholder maps to aria-placeholder defined here: http://w3c.github.io/aria/core-aam/core-aam.html#ariaPlaceholder
Note: the current implemented mapping was correct at time, but since then placeholder properties have been added to acc APIs to handle the attribute

Appreciate the report Steven - we’re fixing this as part of feature work this release and I just resolved this item as a duplicate to this work. It’ll be complete soon and you should be able to verify the changes in one of the coming Windows Insider Preview builds.
