Hello dear WAI People,

I have a question. I am accessibility engineer for our products and all of these are web apps.
We use extensively ARIA to implement an optimal UX and full keyboard access. Our lists (something similar to Windows Explore lists) we present as listboxes or in details mode as grids. My question concerns the button "Add entry" that is designed to be the last option in the listbox (or something in a whole last wor of the grid). Through putting the butten there I get a false list count because this button is not a valid list entry. How can I integrate this button here so that it does not disturb the list count and does not show up in a screen reader as for example 10 out of 10.

Thanks.

Ciao     Mario
