Roku minikeyboard component not announcing initially...

I have created a roku minikeyboard component. And i have turned on accessibility. When the component displays , it is not announcing the letter "A" but when we scroll over the keyboard the other letters are announcing.
If i press back(without exiting from application), then again take the particular component it is announcing the letter "A" and other characters when focus is changing? I don't understand why this is happening like this?????
NB:- throughout the application in the beginning we have turned off the inbuilt announcement of roku. But when i am loading this component I have turned on the inbuilt announcement.

I use an old Blackberry Classic as my Roku mini remote. With that ancient cell phone makes a great Roku keyboard.

Roku 3 for Pokémon TV / YouTube / Animal Planet GO / HBO MAX. Chromecast for most other media because Roku Mirroring sucks , how many clicks in Wndows 10 (about a dozen) to Miracast on Roku vs 2 with Chromecast.
