Correct accessibility hint for Reload button (non-imperative, Double-tap instead of tap)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_3) AppleWebKit/600.5.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/8.0.5 Safari/600.5.17 Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a webpage in Firefox 2. Launch VoiceOver (e.g. triple-click on Home button) 3. Put VoiceOver cursor on the "Reload" button in the bottom toolbar, let it read "Reload" and hear what it reads after a while. Actual results: It reads "Tap to reload the page." Expected results: It should read "Reloads the page." 1. With VoiceOver, it's double-tap, not single tap like without VoiceOver 2. accessibility hint should not be imperative - see "Discussion" for accessibilityHint at https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/documentation/UIKit/Reference/UIAccessibility_Protocol/index.html#//apple_ref/occ/instp/NSObject/accessibilityHint 3. It should not repeat the action taken to activate the item (i.e. should not mention any kind of "tapping" Note that the long-press hints for for back and forward buttons indicated explicit action to be taken ("double tap and hold") as that is the non-default action and quite rare for VoiceOver users, so explicit guidance is needed. (writing about it now, I am thinking if the hint there can be made non-imperative; I just borrowed it from Safari...) Also there is a question whether the hint is needed at all (i.e. if "Reload, button" is sufficient to not require further hints to what the UI element does).
