Steps to reproduce
Aria-describedby should be able to define an element that is used to the represent the tooltip associated with another element.
- Turn on Narrator
- Navigate to http://www.oaa-accessibility.org/examplep/tooltip1/
- Tab to any of the input fields.
The screen reader announces the label associated with the input, and then the content of the tooltip that describes the input.
Screen reader reads: “Last name. Edit. End of line.”
The same website in NVDA/Chrome reads:
“Last name. Edit. Has autocomplete. Your last name is optional.” which contains the content of the tooltip.

Removing the application role from the form (I’m not sure why it’s there) corrects the issue in Edge Chromium Version 126.96.36.199 (Official build) dev (64-bit) + Narrator. It doesn’t seem to make a difference for “classic” Edge and Narrator.
