Type more than 255 characters into the short description field.  Screen reader will continue to announce letters and no indication is given the character limit has been reached.

      Description

      The notification for reaching the character limit on the short is visual only (flashing of the character limit text). Some screen reader users may not know when they have reached the character limit, as the screen reader continues to announce the letter as if the user is still able to type letters in the edit field. A text error message should appear instead of  relying on the flashing characters, the error message should also alert screen reader users verbally at the time the character limit is reached.
