    Specifying language for screen readers

    smon_ed Level 1

      When reading from a RichEditableText component, is there a way which I can indicate to a screen reader what language it should speak in?

       

      I have never used it before but I have been advised that this, for example, tells the screen reader to speak in an italian voice:

       

      "My sentences are English apart from <span lang='it'>Ciao a tutti</span>"

       

      I am applying HTML formatted text to a RichEditableText component.  If I were to use the span tag like this, would it work?

       

      Otherwise, is there any other way in Flex to indicate to a screen reader that a portion of text should be read in another language?

       

      Accessibility is so far the biggest challenge to my career.
