    How does accessibility work?

    Jerry62712 Level 1

      I have added this code:

          CONTACTNAME.accessibilityProperties = new AccessibilityProperties();
          CONTACTNAME.accessibilityProperties.name = "Contact Name";

          CONTACTNAME.accessibilityProperties.description = "Contact Name description";

          if (Accessibility.active)
              Accessibility.updateProperties();
      to a script that is called when this state is invoked.  I've turned on the Project | Properties | Flex Compiler | Generate ...  I've changed the name to make it unique and that is heard when I listen to the page in JAWS.  But without this code, I hear the form item label anyway.  So the question becomes, what is this doing for me?  And how do I hear the desciption?

       

      These are the pages I've already been to:
