Screen Reader Won't Read Spinner [message #885339] Tue, 12 June 2012 20:49

I created a Spinner object and added it to my page. To the left of the spinner I have a CLabel object. I added an AccessibleListener and an AccessibleControlListener to the spinner's Accessible object. The AccessibleListener has a getName() method and the AccessibleControlListener has a getRole() method. When I use JAWS to read the selected components on the page, it does not return the name or role of the spinner that the getName() and getRole() methods return. I have run the app in a debugger and I see the getName()/getRole() methods are called, but JAWS does not say what those methods return. Likewise, when I use the Inspect Objects tool and give the spinner the focus, the name value for the spinner is null. Is there some trick to get JAWS/Inspect to work for a Spinner? Thanks.
