Comment (by afercia):

 Re: Safari + VoiceOver, I can reproduce the weird behaviour even on other
 implementations that perfectly worked while developing a similar feature
 for the editor link toolbar, see https://webkit.org/blog-
 files/aria1.0/combobox_with_live_region_status.html (demo from Example 2
 on https://webkit.org/blog/3302/aria-and-accessibility-inspector/). Not
 sure there's much to do here.

 The options are correctly announced using Firefox+NVDA and IE11+JAWS.

 One improvement I'd consider to add is preventing the default action when
 pressing Tab. The interaction here is different from the link toolbar
 autocomplete, where just one option can be selected at a time. About tags
 instead, it is possible to add multiple tags so it would be nice to make a
 Tab press select the highlighted option and keep the cursor inside the
 input field. As far as I see, this would be as simple as adding
 `event.preventDefault();` when checking for the key `9`.
