    How do I get Accessibility to work?

    Jerry62712 Level 1

      This code:

      public function accessibleSet():void {
      trace("*Testing* Accessibility active before: " + Accessibility.active);
          residenceSizeData.accessibilityProperties = new AccessibilityProperties()
          Accessibility.updateProperties();
          residenceSizeData.accessibilityProperties.name = "Access Name";
          residenceSizeData.accessibilityProperties.description = "Access Description";
      //    residenceSizeData.accessibilityProperties.updateProperties();
      //trace("*Testing* Accessibility active after1: " + residenceSizeData.accessibilityProperties.toString());
      trace("*Testing* Accessibility active after2: " + Accessibility.active);
      }

       

      produces two "false" console entries when ran in the debugger.  What I'm trying to do is activate Flex so JAWS will read the fields.  I understand you can't put the accessibility on a higher container.  So the question becomes, how do I put it on the individual fields?  Will I need to add this to the labels as well?  How about a "higher" talking on the result page?
