I have been looking at how the HTML lang attribute is exposed in acc APIs

in IA2/APK it is exposed by the 'language' text-attribute object
in OSX AX it is exposed via the AXLanguage property

So Firefox on windows/linux does expose
Safari on OSX does (and presumably iOS)

IE/Edge does not
Chrome does not

the implementation details for chrome are clear, but not for IE/Edge

Does UIA expose the lang attribute?

note:
I have filed a bug on chrome/OSX as it doesn't expose lang currently
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=484228

It does not expose on windows either, but have learned that implementation
of Ia2 text attributes in chrome is going to happen
