The Accessibility class manages communication with screen readers. Screen readers are a type of assistive technology for visually impaired users that provides an audio version of screen content. The methods of the Accessibility class are static--that is, you don’t have to create an instance of the class to use its methods.

To get and set accessible properties for a specific object, such as a button, movie clip, or text field, use the _accProps property. To determine whether the player is running in an environment that supports accessibility aids, use

System.capabilities.hasAccessibility.

Availability: ActionScript 1.0; Flash Player 6
