    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are pleased to report this feature is fixed in Edge 16241 and is available in our latest Insider Preview build in the Fast ring. Specifically, when we click the collapsed dropdown box, Narrator says "editable combo box… expanded".

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
